Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

"The Banjo Player" WIP (24" x 36")

I started this painting of the banjo player last week. I'm using a reference photo originally taken by Allen Russell.

Thanks Allen for permission to use your photo for my painting. You can view the reference photo at Montana Old Time Fiddlers Picnic, Livingston...

Christmas break next week!!! Looking forward to spending time with family and friends!!!
