Find me on Instagram, etc.

Well after getting advice from social media types I’ve now added an Instagram account at It’s inchoate but you get the point. Also, these same media socialites tell me I need to have a Facebook page not just a profile to send people to therefore I now have as my artist page. It was the URL of my profile but I’ve changed that to for what that’s worth. Enjoy the confusion or at least embrace it as indeed I do.

Painting Live at Ansbach Artisans

It’s time for another great live experience at Ansbach Artisans this Saturday night from 6-9 p.m. Come out and talk to artists, including me, creating live in the Gallery. I’ve learned a lot since my first event. I now know that I will actually get very little done on a painting. People are very fascinated and excited about my style, technique, and the encaustic medium, therefore my painting in progress will be much further along AND have plenty of mindless areas to work on. Specifically areas that don’t require loads of concentration while I talk to patrons with a hot pen tip in my hand.Flocks of Job - in progress

Sailing into the Waterspout completed

After several permutations, reworks, and completions, I’ve now finished Sailing into the Waterspout and have it posted at This is definitely a change in style and technique from my earlier works and I plan to make it the beginning of a “storm” series. To get a feeling for the texture and light play on the surface I’ve provided a couple of enlarged, detail photos on the site but as usual the painting needs to be seen in person because the highlights of the reflected light change as you move around the piece. Here’s a small section of the overall vertical painting.
