Walking in the rain can be fun, especially if it is warm. At my last art fair, the forecast was for rain. People were prepared so they brought umbrellas.

In our church, we believe that a marriage in the temple can be for eternity and not just til death. I loved painting the overcast skies, and of course, […]

I am always happy to have a commission. They are a challenge, and can lead to paintings that stretch my repertoire. This is a fun commission. A father hired me to paint his daughter’s favorite pub. We decided to do a twilight scene. This pub is in the cool town of Sylva, NC.

As I was listening to my friend’s new album. One of the songs was upbeat and happy. I tried to channel the rhythm in creating this painting. There was an overarching tonal thing going on, with some sweet pure notes sprinkled through it as a contrast. Very nice!
I have a friend that is a very talented musician. He spoke with me about doing an album cover for him. This is one of the ideas we talked about for the cover. It is a fun picture of aliens grooving through space. Lots of fun to paint!
