I organize a monthly Portrait Group.
Last month’s oil sketches of  Tabitha reveal my process.
These are limited palette/oils on bristol paper.

We study portraiture. I’ve been playing with charcoal, brushes and gamsol on Bristol paper.

I am teaching this summer
and I’m hoping you will join me or share my class schedule with interested students and artists.
I am teaching two different classes on Tuesday nights and Thursday nights, for 6 sessions each. One class is Portraiture and the other is Still Life Painting: Oil. Both classes are at Norwalk Community College. Please take a look at the information that follows and think about joining the fun; it would be great to be creative with you this summer.

I’ve moved my studio

May 2, 2014 Comments Off

Hello friends and patrons. I moved my art studio
on April 1, 2014. I am no longer associated with the factory space-Firing Circuits Studios. This was a hard decision, but after eight years I was ready for a change.

I am now situated in Norwalk, in a large studio that is private and tranquil; my commute has been seriously shortened to down the hall, slippers on, coffee in hand-home. Stay tuned for creativity to follow. Feels good.

Small Figures.

October 8, 2013 Comments Off

in the Studio.

I’ve been building a selection of small figures. Many are from my imagination, some are inspired by Rodin’s sketchbook, some are from larger life drawings I’ve done in the past. I’m working on a cool paper that allows smudging. Then I push the limits of a variety of drawing materials: markers, oil crayons, watercolor, inks. You can see I also use an etching pen to carve into the pigments. Next step. Take a few of these to larger images.
