Ponies in a Sandpit 22x28 2008
I am a native of Arkansas, but currently living in Texas. This blog exhibits some of my paintings over the last several years. Since I was young, colors have captivated me, lines and contours drew me in, and light bewitched my senses. My high school art teacher introduced me to oil painting, a medium I cannot get away from because of its simultaneous intensity and serenity in the colors it creates. As my love for painting grows, so does my love and appreciation of the Original Artist, who creates every shape, line, light, color, and contrast new each day. God has given us creative abilities, and I love using them to express his beautiful creation. I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as I enjoyed producing them.

Red screams passion to me. So does dance. I found several photographs of flamenco dancers and was captured by their movement, boldness, grace and feeling. Dance is only one form of interpretation and expression, and I reflected the emotion these pictures conveyed to me in this painting.
These are several other paintings I had saved on my computer. Some were commissions and some I still have at my house.
