My artist friend, Ida from Dutch Valley, has been trying to get me to do this for several months. With her help, I have created this blog, and I'm now ready to share my art with whomever. I have enjoyed doing art since very early childhood. My favorite subjects are the Nevada landscapes and it's people. I paint each week with the Portrait Society of Reno and try to do at least one plein air painting each week. Here are some of my recent works.
Brunswick Gold is along Carson River East of Carson City, studio painting from a plein air. 12X24, oil on canvas.
Hobo Hotsprings (above) is south of Carson City and was painted later on the same day, and in the same area, as Misty Autumn Morning (right) both are plein air, oil on linen panel, 11X14.
Mikel's Horses, oil on canvas, 12 X 24, is a commissioned piece of mustanges near Virginia City.
