This is an oil painting that  I created on an 11" x 14" canvas.  I call it "Wild One".   

 I received an "Artist Of The Month" at my local, art club meeting last month with this painting.  My art club is the Peoria Fine Arts Association (PFAA).  From the 5 total paintings that were in the running for "Artist Of The Year" at my club meeting, this painting has now received the "Artist Of The Year" award.

I painted this subject as a test for a canvas-covered, RayMar Panel, which I bought some time ago.  I call the painitng, "Don't Eat The Daisies".   I was so pleased with it that I entered it into the Arizona State Fair, along with two other paintings.  I was fortunate to have received a First Place In Oils in the open, fine art category.  I just sold this painting at the Glendale Art Competition, 2013.

This is a test that I did on a RayMar Panel.  I like panels because they are inflexible, and quite durable.  This is a panel coated with Claessens, double oil primed, Linen canvas.  It worked very well, and I'm pleased enough with the RayMar Panel that I intend to buy more of them. 

This is 11" x 14" oil on a RayMar Linen panel.

The subject of this painting is a little area of apartments just down the street from me. Late at night, or very early in the morning, the light appears to light up a specific area, which is the way I tried to portray it in this painting. This is a 16" x 20" oil on canvas, which I have titled, "Night Class".

This painting received a "Best Of Show" at the Peoria Celebration Of Artists Exhibit at the Peoria City Hall Gallery, Peoria, AZ.  It has been sold.


This painting is a 16" x 20" on canvas. I appreciate the Hudson River Valley School of painting, and this is probably the closest I've come to painting in that style. "Journey"...16" x 20" oil on canvas.
