I paint just about every day. In fact, before the popular one-a-day painting was invented I was burning through canvas like there's no tomorrow.

Now, I just really love to paint and that's what I do when not tending kids or chickens or calling ducks. Some wonderful men who are great painters in their own right have also taken time to teach and injectify me with fantastical and glowing strains of artistical inspiration like Taylor Lynde, Mike Mahoney and Gabor Svagrik. Thanks to them and all the folks in cyber-world who have helped to perpetuate the continuation and promulgation of my art and all the happy walls it's hanging on. Through galleries, commissions and on-line venues we've sold over 2000 paintings lifetime...so far!

Peace to you
