'Inspired by nature simply because of her endless subject matter and surprises.   Although I do prefer painting nature themes landscape settings and sometimes abstract art, I'm open to other things that may catch my eye.   There is always something to learn as an artist, I feel that I'm just a work in progress.   I like to create a sense of place that is somewhere but nowhere in particular.   I hope each and every viewer sees and takes something a little different from my work and has an experience rather than just be viewing a picture.   My goal is not to paint life,...more

Started painting a pair of wood ducks taking flight, still unfinished, another painting waiting for that final brush stroke. I got so many paintings started, I don't know which one to work on next. Anybody else out there like me, start working on ten... 

Pencil Drawings

November 12th, 2015

Since I was old enough to hold a pencil, drawing became an everyday thing. I would draw cars, space ships etc. On the way to school, on the bus, on the way to church, everywhere I went. I sorta put drawing on the back burner trying to learn how to pa...

Meet my apprentice, 100 pounds of pure art critic with big teeth. His name is Thor Maximus Von Xan Murray. This is the look he gives me when I refuse to go play with him. My son named him "Thor" Mythological God of Thunder and Lightning, I think; so ... 

My Very Own Little World

February 3rd, 2015

Just a brief glimpse of where I spend my time, working on my art. So I call it my studio, simply a back bedroom in the house, a 12 x 12 space, stuffed to the gills with everything I think I might need as an artist. But seriously I don't need probably...
