My Artwork

Here are examples of my own art. I love painting more than just about anything else in the world. In my free time, I spend a lot of time painting. Unfortunately, I don't have as much free time as I would like. The painting above is more realistic than is typical of me, but I like it anyway. Generally, I paint landscapes, because I love nature. Normally, though, I paint very expressively using bright colors and thick brush strokes. I like to make my paintings very alive with a lot of emotion.

These are all oil paints. I love the thickness of oil paints and the length of time it takes to dry. I also just love the vibrancy of these paints.
When it comes to my art, realism has nothing to do with it. It is mostly about emotions.

Not everyone likes my style of painting. If this isn't your "cup of tea", that is absolutely fine. Everyone has their own tastes when it come to art.


  1. definitely my "cup of tea." Love your Fauvist palatte! Beautiful work.
