Painting food (mostly produce) may not seem very exciting to some artists, but I love it. There is nothing like fresh cherries; the perfect apple (after digging through hundreds to find). Interpreting nature’s colors is always a challenge. Currently, I am experimenting with different views of fruits and vegetables by slicing in them in half and painting in the form of a diptic (two canvases to be hung together). A new way of seeing the object.
In the Still Life category on this site, you will see a halved pear and pineapple – my first in this series. There are many new paintings I am completing for the galleries and festivals so check back soon.
If you want something in particular, I am willing to do commissions. And, if you want a high quality reproduction of any of my paintings on canvas or art paper, please let me know.

I do have lots of new paintings and framed giclees of many of my pieces. Please stop by to say “hello”. Oh! And do introduce yourself….
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming festivals. Alexandria and Leesburg are new locations for me, so hope to see new people there. I will be displaying new paintings including a series on “Golf”…just getting started, but enjoying this new theme.
