I have been so busy with commissions for the holidays that I have not been able to create and post new work for sale on Daily Paintworks. Beginning in the New Year, I will be back to posting brand-new work. Thanks to everyone ​​​​​​​who has supported my work over the past year. It was my first year as part of this community and I really enjoyed it. 

Happy Holidays!

The primary focus of my work is the things that are closest to me. Some favorite subjects are the cats that roam the house and the flowers found in the yard and garden.

I work in many different mediums and like to try different techniques using whatever is available. My most recent work employs pastels alone. I love the immediacy of the medium and its versatility. It can be blended, it can be left alone, it can be applied in broad strokes, and it can be used to show great detail. I'm starting to learn what works and what doesn't work (at least for me), and for every piece that turns out ok, there are many more that don't work out. But every drawing or painting presents itself as an opportunity to learn and grow.

I also do commissions. If you are interested in having me create something for you, please contact me and we can discuss the details. 

I live in Whitehall, PA with my wife and a few animals who have found a home with us.

P.S. With the price of everything going up and up these days, it is harder than ever to make ends meet. But having something that may inspire, make you laugh, or just makes you happy is more important than ever. So if you like a certain drawing or painting in my gallery, but it is currently not in your budget, contact me and we'll see what we can do to make it part of your home.
