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.

"Oak Phone 2"
This is an acrylic painting done on primed and sanded hardboard, 8"x10". I really like working with acrylics because I can get many layers of transparent colour and enjoy the textures that I put down. "Put colour on with the right hand, and blow it dry with the hair dryer in the left hand". I really have worked that way, especially under the gun with a deadline when I worked commercially. I like to do things made from wood 'cause you can get some fun graining, and the wall in the background has a lot of layering and scraping. It's almost like building something. I would have been a good finish carpenter.
