This is a commissioned abstract painting in mixed media. One of my favorite styles, it makes me think of the New York City subway, for some reason. Maybe it's the 'rivets' that you see on the steel columns that are everywhere in the subway system?
At any rate, I use layers of paint to create a 'distressed' look! Can you see the copper patina showing through?

This is a commission request- a chocolate/mint colored abstract painting with swirls. Come to think of it, I should have called it Swiss Chocolate Mint Swirl, or something like that - lol!

This is a quick painting that I made for my dad - a Roman bridge in the Provence region of France. I've always liked these types of bridges, it must be the stone-work that I'm drawn to, with all of the different shadows that it tends to cast!

This is a daily painting that I worked on today, but did not finish. (So I guess it's not a daily painting, huh?) Well, let's just say that I paint every day, even if I don't get to finish one - LOL!
Anyway, I'll be adding some more elements to this painting, and will re-post the picture when I'm done.
This is a 24x48 inch canvas, which is probably why I ran out of time to finish it. You would think that it's not that much more coverage, versus a 24x36, but it IS a big difference! Anyway, I hope that you like it so far...

This is a commission request, based upon my original 'Liberty II' painting. A very patriotic theme, this painting shows the Statue of Liberty in silhouette, against the red, white and blue background, with it's own 'crackle texture'!

This is a commissioned abstract painting- a 5 piece colorful work of art.
I love creating these abstract paintings. I put a lot of energy into them as I paint. When painting with acrylic paint, you have to keep moving, or else the paint will dry up on you, and then you have to go over the same areas again!

This is a new daily painting- a triptych seascape with lighthouse. Deep blue waters reflect the dimming sky and moon, while a lighthouse performs its nightwatch.

This is a new daily painting, an abstract landscape on canvas. I used a palette knife and brushwork in this piece, to help create visual interest. The mountains are slightly more purple than indicated here, and create a strong contrast against the orange on the left side of the painting.

This is a commissioned painting- a 3 piece colorful abstract painting for that bold person in you! Waves of color swirl across the canvas in a vortex of sorts...

This is a new daily painting- an abstract - impressionist landscape on 5 canvases. This original painting has golden trees against a blue sky with an eagle in flight in the background! A perfect art scene for this time of year, don't you think?

This is a new daily painting- a commissioned sunset on two canvases. This is one of those fiery red sunsets that you see when you are in the tropics, like Tahiti, or Hawaii, and sometimes in the Caribbean.
