The painting is completed on heavy, gessoed, acid-free artist's paper. A quick pencil sketch on location is followed by bold, intuitive treatment with acrylics. The work is ready for framing.
I wander the hills just north of Lake Ontario. This piece is from a series of intimate, small landscapes that has been continuing for many years.
...the north field about half a mile away. I visit it almost every day and it changes a great deal depending on lighting and atmospheric conditions. Quite often, I see a flock of wild turkeys in this field, usually in the evenings.

I have been painting, showing, and selling for over 30 years and divide my time between painting and teaching. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts, a Master of Fine Arts, and a Bachelor of Education.
