My painting "Nautilus Reflections" one of my new series of Still Lifes, was accepted in the Solon International 2011 Exhibit at the Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas. The Exhibit will run from April 2 thru the April 22, 2011. http://greenhousegallery.com/.
As an artist raised in the Midwest, the natural beauty of the coastal shoreline has always intrigued and amazed me. I particularly liked the subject matter and the effect of the light, which enhanced the colors, creating unique and interesting reflections and shadows. I strive to blend the fine nuances of color, texture and shapes to create an image that draws the viewer to a pleasant experience. As I continue to paint and continue to grow, I find landscape painting a real challenge as well as a great joy. I use linen canvas on boards or stretched, using professional grade oil paints. My body of work is composed of both Studio and Plein Air paintings
