My introduction to painting came in 1987 when my wife enrolled me in a beginning watercolor class for a birthday gift. This led me to painting seriously on my own studying the work of Philip Jamison, Andrew Wyeth and Thomas William Jones.
I am passionate about watercolor. The limitations it presents gives rise to its strengths if handled correctly. It's transparency breathes air and light into a painting. Its unpredictability can bring spirit. Its unforgiving nature brings a true emotional response.
My recent exhibits include Buffalo Bill Show, Buffalo Bill Center of the West; CFD Western Art Show, Old West Museum; Small Works Great Wonders National Cowboy Heritage Museum; Mountain Oyster Club Show; Settlers West American Miniatures; Trailside Galleries Masters in Miniature; Coors Western Art Show; Zions Bank Show Art Show and Sears Museum Dixie Invitational.
