I want this to be a record of my journey from architectural illustrator to fine arts painter, focusing on landscape and still life subjects. There is so much to learn, but this is more for the journey than the destination.

"Cathedral and Cookies"
It's no secret that many artists like to paint old things, and I love to do my "old things" paintings in acrylics so I can work quickly and use numerous layers to achieve interesting textures with worn woods and metals and such. This one is a style of radio called "Cathedral" and tons of them were sold in the thirties and forties and now you can buy replicas, which have really bad speakers and a slot for CDs and casette tapes, and if anyone has any vinyl records ( I do ), there are "Crosley" radios that have turntables on the top. I know because my aunt bought me one, and I'm going to try getting a good needle for it and we'll see what happens. Thanks for coming by.
