Me at Work

Open studio night

Goofing around with friends at an open studio event.  The Northrup King Building, where my studio is located, is open the First Thursday of each month from 5-9pm.  Come on by if you're interested in looking at a piece in person or are just curious about how I work.  *NOTE, grapes may or may not be available for hand feeding...... and send me an email if you know you're stopping by so I can make sure to be at the studio! :-)

Studio Time

Putting in some studio time with Doris Day (as Calamity Jane) and working on another 72"x48" train painting.  I've always been an old movie buff and occassionaly put one on while I'm painting.

Lakeshore Plein Air Painting

I decided to pack my easel when we headed out in the boat for a family outing and exploration trip.  This location is in a secluded bay in Lake of the Woods, Canada, called "Bottle Bay".  The resulting painting "MillerTime Shored up in Bottle Bay" was finished in the studio.

Evening Campfire and Plein Air

 This was in the northern part of Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada.  It was a fine evening for a campfire and I got out of having to saw up or carry any firewood since I was "hard at work" ha!
