Welcome to my website
As the Holidays are fast approaching and life seems to take on a faster pace, my hope is to spend quality time with family and friends both at Thanksgiving, my 2018 Holiday Open House and Art Sale on the 30th of November and Christmas. Enjoy!
One of the most dreaded questions artists get from people viewing their art is "How long did it take you to paint that?" Do they want to know if it is worthy of the price you have on the painting? Or could it be a compliment that you probably could turn out paintings right on the spot? Several of my artist friends spend a longer time painting than I do. It is the preparation before the brushes are wet that involves the greatest amount of time. Not all artists have the same process in creating their art so I'm speaking only from my perspective. Visit my Blog to see more about my process.
I"ll be changing the slideshow in my "About" tab on Yupo paintings in December - so be sure to check it out before it is taken down. I've added my latest paintings using Acrylics rather than Watercolor -- can you see any differences between the two media? If you would like to see the difference in person please respond to the 2018 Holiday Open House and Art Sale form on my News page.
Hope you are enjoying my French Door Series - more to post soon. Still working on which cycling paintings from the tours this spring and summer to paint -- so many great images and new faces emerging.
You can place your order for the 2019 Custom Fancy Footwork Desktop Calendar in the "Specialty Art Items" tab. Also the card packs make great gifts and the Shoe Poster makes a fun gift. Take a fresh look at your walls to see if it is time to change out your art or wall accessories from one season to another. A gift to a special someone or for yourself of original art or a print is a timeless gift.
Check out the "News" tab to see where you can see my art on display:
- St. Vincent Hospital - Peacock Foraging painting is on display in the corridor outside the Transitions Breast Cancer offices in the East Wing
- WSO Exhibition 20 Award Winning Painting in the Traveling Show is now up in the Hillsboro Library through the end of December. In addition WSO artists from around Portland have added their paintings to the exhibition. I'll post more after Wednesday on which paintings with photos are in that show.
- 2018 Holiday Open House and Art Sale will be held November 30th this year.
