My paintings start out as completely random sketches. I actually close my eyes and scribble on a sheet of paper for about 30 seconds then start connecting lines, shading, etc. Sometimes images begin to appear and those are the sketches I decide to paint. So I rarely start out with an idea in mind. I feel that in some way this process brings out images that are buried somewhere in the recesses of my mind and I personally find it exciting to see what those images are.  
 
Several of these paintings are listed for sale on Vango.com .  New paintings won't be listed for sale for several months as it can take 4 to 6 months for an oil painting to dry.  If you happen to be interested in a piece that is not listed for sale please contact me and we can discuss any purchase arrangements for that painting.
 
And if you happen to simply like viewing art online and are not interested in a purchase, I welcome all feedback .  That is one of the best tools available for an artist to improve their skills.  
 
Thank you for spending some of your time to view my work.
