By | Uncategorized | No Comments

You are invited to ArtWalk, November 2nd at the Robert Kent Galleries, Church St, off the historic Square, Marietta, Georgia.

I’m so excited to be selected to be part of ArtWalk at Robert Kent Galleries for the month of November. I have a selection of 15 pieces with a focus on seascapes and some cityscapes. So pop in for a glass of wine or hot apple cider and some great art from the group of artists selected for November.

Here are a couple of my pieces that will be on exhibit;



“Wisteria” 48″ x 48″ framed, acrylic on studio wrapped canvas. Tremendous color.detail,  texture, and layers of interesting effects that create the hanging composition and overall form of the painting.

Cityscape III 20″ x 24″ Acrylic on studio canvas.

Driftwood Painting – NC Coastline

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Slow Mo Video (double-click to open video)

Just finished this unusual commission. The client asked for a painting of a typical North Carolina inner banks waterway scene on a piece of driftwood found in the Pamlico River in Washington, NC. The piece is 10′ wide by 10″ high and has a very weathered rough surface. It is a beautiful piece of wood with old nail holes along the edges. I used the natural contours of the wood to inform the overall composition. The painting is like a series of small paintings and visual narrative of the river. It was both fun and challenging to paint.

Here are selected images from the piece;

The above picture was taken as a work in progress, the other images above are sections of the finished piece.
