A personal favorite gets a new home (I made a Sale)

I made a sale! Yesterday I said goodbye to one of my personal favorite paintings. This particular painting was one of a series I called “Modern Petroglyphs” and was started back in 2010, and stopped around 2012. It was also one of those rare paintings (and many of you artists know what I am talking about) that I can still look at and not be embarrassed about or wince every time I glance at it. In fact..I like it! Glad to see it going to a good home.

In addition to the sale, I was also commissioned to make another painting for the same patron (and friend)

Thanks Norm!

Here is the work that sold. Love working in this highly textured manner.

# 2 of my ”90 paintings in 90 day challenge.” This one was done using a palette knife to apply the paint. At six inches square, it was quite a challenge to move the paint around using only a knife, but I always like the thick impasto effects this technique creates.

Thanks for stopping by. If you like this painting, it can be yours by clicking “buy now” underneath the image.

A New Webpage!

At last, I have finally put together a new website complete with a blog! Here is a painting I did when I lived in Olympia, Washington (2002-2005) It was one of my early sales, and it was purchased by a repeat customer. It was great knowing that someone thought my art was good enough to purchase. I am so grateful for that early patronage.
