It's very difficult if not impossible to capture the real jewel-like quality in a oil painting on linen with a camera. The many glazes in this work all weave together to give an amazing optical effect in person, so I urge you to visit Elevation Gallery to view the work....before it's gone!

As summer approaches, I've been out tire-kicking ...or "paddle-kicking".....for a new red canoe of our own. For now, since it's still pretty cold and the rivers are high in the mountains.... I'll be content to craft them with a brush, one by one....in my studio, remembering fondly the warm lakes of the east that wait for us.
It's "all in the family" when it comes to creating work in the studio. Everyone inspires and assists when the studio is located in the middle of the home and the hubbub of family and home all takes place around the work.
