Stepping outside of the box

I am finally caving and starting my blog, after much feet dragging.  I realized that I do have a lot to say, and I want you all to know more about my art and why I create what I do.

Lately life has been busy with both event paintings and custom commissions.  I have taken on a very unique painting request for something that I wouldn't normally create.  I believe that as artists, we must be flexible in honoring our customers' requests.  Just because we're artists doesn't mean we don't have to listen to the customer!  I am happy with how it's coming along.  I can't wait to show everyone when it's complete!

A few weeks ago I did a live painting at a fundraiser for the SS United States, a ship whose passengers included: JFK, Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, Bill Clinton, etc.  The ship is being kept at a pier in Philadelphia, where they hope to raise enough money to redevelop it.  Thank you to the SS Conservancy for having me and to my new collector, Mary, for her support in bidding on my painting!
