In recent years I've taken to direct painting. This work can be seen on the FIELD STUDIES page. All of the work you'll see here was painted on site and completed in a single session. Also in this page are interior studies. The medium is oil, usually on a masonite panel. The dimensions range from 6" to 28", average size is 16" x 12". Each painting takes 1 to 3 hours to complete. This type of painting can be a challenge for an artist. Gotta be quick, gotta get it right.
Almost all of these particular works are available. Call to inquire. The price range for works in this category: $300 - $800, unframed.
On the DRAWINGSpage, you will see some of the latest, all from direct observation. The statuary is from Green Mount Cemetery and Loudon Park, both in Baltimore. The live models were drawn at the local Dr. Sketchy's, of which I've become a big fan. The average size is about 11 x 14:"
Frequent perusers of this site will note the absence of my "Archives & Portraits" page. I removed it because I'm not currently creating or marketing that kind of work.
The STILL LIFE page consists of a relatively new interest for me. The sizes are noted on each, and all are painted from direct observation. Price range starts at $400. Some stuff is multi-session work, hence the higher prices than the Field Studies.
