Wow! Where does the time go?? Just realized I haven’t entered a blog post since Christmas! I hope the New Year finds everyone doing well. My year is off to a busy stART. Yes, ART, features front and center in 2019 for this author. I began a new piece in early January and am nearing completion of it. It measures 30 x 40 and is a complex composition featuring several people. Here are some progressive photos of the painting process from beginning to where it is now. It’s been a very challenging piece, but I am pleased with the way it’s progressing. 


In addition to my studio work, I am also teaching a painting class at the Beach Art Center in Indian Rocks Beach, FL. It began in January and continues through the end of March. “Simple Steps to Painting Success” is offered on Thursday mornings from 9am to noon. The course is open to all levels and accepts new students anytime they wish to register. It’s been a delight to work with this enthousiastic and talented group!
