Red Delicious

Here's a last look at an apple I brought back from my Florida trip. It's a 6" x 8" oil on panel titled "Red Delicious," and the subject was, indeed, red and delicious. Enjoy.

Darling Clementines

It's back to the indoor painting again. This piece is a 6" x 8" oil on panel called "Darling Clementines." I've always liked these little fruits - which some call small oranges and others call tangerines. I just call them Clementines. Enjoy.

Early Signs

Here's my take from the one nice day we had last week. It's a little 8" x 6" oil on panel called "Early Signs." All the snow and rain have made for a nicely running stream in our woods. This, along with patches of grass and moss, make it seem like Spring can't be too far away.

Gulf Sunset

Here's the last of my little Florida paintings - a 6" x 8" oil on panel I just call "Gulf Sunset." I saw a lot of great ones down there, but this one really caught my artistic attention. Purchase options, as usual, are on our website, Enjoy.

Here's another impressionistic view of some of the lovely Florida palms I can now see only in paint and pixels. There are many, many varieties of palms but these - the Royals - are among the grandest, in my opinion. Here's a group of young Royals, hence the title. Enjoy.

Two Grannies

Here's a new still life I finished recently. I figure that's a good thing to do when it's cold outside. This one's a 6" x 8" oil on panel I call "Two Grannies." I've been so prolific these days, especially with these little paintings, I'm thinking of having a big sale. If that interests you - let me know! Thanks.

Pink Hibiscus

Enough of this snow - I'm back to the Florida painting. Here's the latest I just finished of one of the flowering shrubs they prune with shears down there. The more they prune - the more they bloom; lovely. Purchase options on

New Sculpture Class in Yellow Springs at JBCP

Not to confuse you, but I am planning to teach a clay sculpture class at John Bryan Community Pottery in Yellow Springs next month. I know most folks think of me as a painter, but I sculpted and taught in clay for many years before I dove into the paint. (Some people still think of me as a photographer - which is fine since I still do that too). Follow your bliss. There's a link to JBCP over on the right, with my class on it. It is scheduled to start Wed., 4/3/13, 6:30 - 9 pm, and run for 8 weeks. All levels are welcome. Feel free to contact me or JBCP with any questions. The piece above is titled "A Hard Reign." It's one of mine that's currently in the Yellow Springs Arts Council's Members Show, "Art for Change" until 3/10/13, I believe.

Sailor's Delight

I'm obviously more of an impressionist than a photo-realist - but these are the colors I saw, and felt. It's a little 8" x 6" oil on panel I'm calling "Sailor's Delight." I may try to make a larger one at some point, but this one makes me happy for now. has the purchase options. Enjoy.
