Hi there. I just got these images back from being scanned so I’m ready to sell the originals and can make prints of a bunch of my little and big paintings. And I have a record for myself of what I’ve done. That’s always exciting. And the professional photos are always so much better thanContinue reading “New Etsy Listings”
Thanks for your nice comments and encouragement about the show today. In my opinion it was a great success. A lot of people came through, I met a bunch of great people, learned some things, and sold some of my work. I got a lot of kind feedback. You can’t ask for too much moreContinue reading “Art in the Bar Show”

(I’d get rid of the giant red signature on the squirrel). I wonder if people would buy them. I think theyContinue reading “Winter”
Today’s 4×4″ painting. Just an FYI, nearly all of my little paintings are or will be for sale. Contact me if you want details. But of course I’m just happy to have you follow along.
4X5″ oil on canvas I was talking to a friend the other day about Amy Ringholtz’s work. As we were looking at some images I commented that she seems confident, and how it even shows in how she signs her paintings. If you’ve been following me for a bit you have probably read about howContinue reading “Squirrel”
