There are still three more saturday open houses at my studio before Christmas and I even have some minis left on the tree! The open house will be from 11am-7pm. And if you're on the west coast, Saturday night is the reception for the 6" Square Show at Randy Higbee Gallery.

These two paintings were commissioned by a couple for their home in Florida. They purchased a painting of a seagull standing in water and wanted two other paintings to hang with it in a grouping. The ocean waves and foggy pier paintings will look beautiful together in a group.
If you are interested in having me create a painting for your home please contact me. I would love to work with you!

Every year at this time I paint miniature oil paintings that can be hung on a tree. They can also be displayed in your home after the holidays are over. This year I have painted Hershey's Hugs & Kisses, several birds, and new for me are these old marbles. They were so much fun. This photo shows how I simply place the marble on my easel and paint it from life on a little piece of canvas. I use very fine brushes and a lot of patience.
I will be having an open studio every Saturday through the holiday season, beginning Saturday, November 9th. The hours will be from 11am - 7pm. I will be demonstrating my painting techniques and serving delicious refreshments! If you are looking for a unique gift for someone special come and check out the large selection of items for under $100. They include limited edition prints, original graphite drawings, pen and ink, and oil paintings.

It was a busy weekend at the Oktoberfest in Walhalla, SC. This is the festival's 35th year and it was a nice weekend, although a little chilly. Here is a photo of my booth.

I was commissioned to paint this large 60x48 oil painting of the ocean. My reference photo was taken when hurricane Sandy was about 200 miles from the coast. It was early morning and the waves were incredible. I'll try to post a better photo on my website. This photo was taken with my iPhone and the colors are off.
