Hello to all. I’m an artist. A painter for the most part. I paint with oils (and sometimes pastels) in a realist style, although to me the abstract is present in everything. My goal is to capture mood and feeling in a painting, more so than image. Favorite subjects include landscape, still life, portrait, figure, animals and wildlife. I draw and sketch as often as possible. A few other things I like to do are mosaics, hand-cut paper, wood carving, clay, crochet, creative writing and trekking around outdoors to study and observe nature. I know. That’s a lot of things. But I’m a creative person and life is short. Peace.
