As I write this, I'm at the Art Barn School of Art in Valparaiso, Indiana. Spring has finally come to this part of the world – the woods are filled with a lacy fluttering of green, spring beauties carpet the ground,…Continue

I take all my plein air equipment anywhere, easily, all in one trip. I just roll it along in my Plein Air Wheely.
Everything I need goes with me. No more trips back and forth to the van! Lightweight, compact and sturdy, it loads into vehicles readily.
Dirt trails, cobblestone paths, garden gravel, boggy lawns - nothing keeps me from getting to the right spot with all my equipment: chair, umbrella,…Continue

Not looking to replace my oils, gouache, acrylics...but, fun is fun...and I'm always intrigued by something new, different. When at first difficult, I am even more intrigued and suddenly obsessed.
Last night got out for an hour and painted this one...sitting in my truck, using an ipad 2...started with a stylus, but soon…Continue

The County is mostly farmland with picturesque villages, streams, waterfalls and lakeshore. If you enjoy…Continue

Autumn is my favorite time of year. Today is my 64th birthday, and I can remember many birthdays when I was out painting on location in places like Yosemite, when I would schedule my vacation time to the end of October. As I look outside in my front yard here in Georgia, the leaves on the trees are all turning color…

Greg Long picked Suzie and I up at the airport in Dublin on the 20th of July and put up with us for about 5 days in his home with his lovely wife Christine and son Eoin, who is a scholar in Irish History. He is also a poet. When we returned to Greg's home the night before leaving Ireland to head home, Eoin presented me with this poem he wrote for us. I was very touched by this and would like to share it with you. …Continue

I just changed the background image on our site. Some of you may have wondered why I chose the petryglyph art of the Anaszi, as the previous background for our site. The Anaszi were definately carving the likeness of their wildlife outdoors, on the canyon and mesa walls long before we came along. Things they saw and were familiar with. This would qualify them as our four fathers of pein air. NO? Or at least "wildlife" artists.
I'm told that this one is of an antelope, but I believe it…Continue
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Alaska, and I had the most wonderful students to work with. Alaskan artists are geared, wired to embrace their weather. Rain, chill, mist, whatever the forecast...a bit of a shrug of the shoulders and a smile of assurance,…Continue
...sportin' a new look these days...(or, ran out of "Just For Men?" hahaa)...a bit white on the goatee now, and an Aussie style cowboy hat that is water resistant and good shade for the neck and eyes...
Getting ready now to leave for Alaska, this coming Thursday...teaching a…Continue
