Clockwork Butterflies No. 6

Clockwork Butterflies No. 6

Acrylic on stretched canvas - 24" x 36"

For my first entry on the Artists2artists blog, I would like to feature a painting that was completed over many months. The earlier paintings in this series were more realistic in the interpretation of the clock gears, but ended up being somewhat monochromatic. I purposefully decided to forgo the…

Antiquities and More

I just completed my "Antiquities" dipditch.  It is an abstraction of an ancient city on a hillside.  This painting is done in oils because I wanted to work with earth tones and blends and I do that best in oils. 


I am a retired engineer and quite truthfully, I don't have a big imagination.  I see things very realisticly and have a very difficult time…

My Bio

My Bio

As far back as I can remember, all I ever wanted to be was an artist. From the age of 5, if my mother wanted to keep me occupied and out of mischief, all she had to do was give me a pencil and paper, and I would draw for hours.

When I was 14 I had an accident while riding my bike, and broke my leg. It was serious enough that I had to be put in a body cast which landed me in bed for almost 8 months. During that time the Board of Ed sent me home tutors so that I wouldn't miss…

Artist Statement

I have always had a creative mind when I draw a certain type of object. My inspiration comes from books I have read,mystery movies, dreams, and the dark creative side of my brain. I like the idea of using graphite when I draw, and the major use of contrasting. I am also inspired by a famous artist, Samuel Gammell.

Artist Statement Update

Men don't cry. Men don't show emotion. Men handle their own problems…

I grew up in rural New York, near the St. Lawrence River. My family used wood stoves as our main source of heat, within a 150 year old uninsulated farm house. My little brother and I used a chainsaw to cut-up logs, blocked wood with a 12 lb. steel splitting maul, and hauled it into the house—all part of a normal winter. My Dad exemplifies the rugged man—a bridge construction worker, welder, mechanic, hunter,…

Capturing Light as an Art

I've had a fascination with colored light ever since I was tiny. Growing up in England we had delicious chocolates called Quality Street. Each one was individually wrapped, often in brightly colored cellophane. I used to have so much fun holding those up to my eye. That fascination has now become a passion. I photograph static points of colored light. My intention is to illustrate light in a form it's not seen by the human eye. To show others what it can be. To freeze a few 3D moments in…

It will also show more people what I can do with a paintbrush as well as giving…
