Artworks Media : Oil - Oil On Canvas - Painting - Painting On Canvas




I began my interest in art in the 1960s when I chose art as my major at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, my home town.  Between that time and when I (finally) received my bachelor’s degree in visual art from Winthrop University (Rock Hill, SC) in 1984, I "kept my fingers" (pun intended) in art by working as an illustrator, art instructor, gallery assistant, and on commissioned pieces.  I attended classes and workshops, and exhibited my work wherever I could, all the while raising two sons.

About my work: On canvas I strive to convey the character of a subject, not just the superficial and obvious.  For me, a painting begins with a subject that has exciting shape, color, light and shadow elements.  I look at a street scene, a landscape, or whatever "speaks" to me and visualize a different, more colorful and engaging image.  I am not necessarily attracted to landmarks or "things," but to interesting compositions and designs found in our surroundings and everyday life.  The hustle and bustle of a city excites me as much as a gorgeous landscape.  In my work I want to answer the question "What about this subject am I trying to convey?"  I do not merely copy what is in front of me, but try to convey the emotion I felt at the time.  Instinct plays a key role during this working process.

Having painted and drawn in most other media, I always come back to oils, my first and current love.  I delight in the feel of the thick, lush and fluid paint as my brush moves it around the canvas.  Because of the slow drying time of oils I rarely finish a painting before beginning another; I usually have about five paintings in progress at once.  When possible I prefer to paint en plein air, but sometimes must rely on photo references I have taken.  I realized long ago that unless I experience a subject first-hand, I cannot effectively transfer that vision onto canvas, nor share it with the viewer.

These two phrases sum up my painting philosophy:

(1) "Meaning in life is found in discovering your gift; success is found in giving

       it away.

(2) "Speak softly and carry a big brush!"
