Finished December Paintings

           Here are the paintings from December, 16 in all, but my goal is not to make more paintings, my goal is to make better paintings, and I think I'm getting there by making more paintings.  Much of the pursuit in my work is to try and find subject that says what I want to say and paint it, it's really the alchemy between skill and subject. These are all available, even the self portrait, which my family called zombie-like!  They are priced by size from $300- $900.  Let me know if you are interested, Thanks!

Finished November Paintings

    November wasn't the most productive month with only 14 paintings done, But overall I'm happy with the direction my work is headed in. I've been thinking about the big picture, in which my work, and in particular the subject of my work has a message. One painting doesn't hold all the information of all the work viewed together, so that a painting of rushing water one day says something about the industrial landscape the following day, and the village scene the day after that. Together they form a vision of the world I live in and my take on that world. More on this later, now here are the paintings from November:
