Oil Paintings

Most of my oil paintings are held in private collections. If you are interested in one, please send me an email and I can give you information about the piece.

Pencil

As a representational artist, I firmly believe artists need to hone their drawing skills. Some of these sketches were done on gesso treated masonite, others were done on illustration board.

a long road

My studio has paintings of Cowboys and Indians done in 1973 hanging on its walls. As a young boy growing up in Montana, I was enamored with the west's history and lore and many years later I still am. Those paintings, done by me as a boy in the basement of our Billings home, are on my wall to remind me of who I am and where I have come from.

"Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do."
