I will be showing at the Battle Ground Library gallery July & August 2014.  There will be a number of new river paintings, and a couple new portraits. 

As far as my art style, my paintings are realistic - but with a mix of loose brushwork at times, with some tightly rendered areas at other times.  I tend to enjoy painting lots of details, and studying natural subjects closely.  But (especially on larger paintings), I also enjoy loosening up and staying more rough. Paint is a wonderful medium and can do so many different types of things, and I like exploring that.  I’m constantly learning and trying new techniques, and new effects.  The subjects of my paintings are usually rivers, water and rocks - (most often the east fork of the Lewis river, right nearby).   I also love to paint portraits of family and friends.
