"Morning Contemplation"

This site contains photos of oil paintings that I have done from 1983 to the present. The paintings are for the most part classical still life, landscape, and seascape in nature and reflect my longing for a simpler world with simple pleasures. I am a great fan of the Hudson River School of artists, including, Frederic Church, George Inness, and Albert Bierstadt, and Old Master Still Life artists, including the Dutch Still Life painters of the 16th and 17th centuries; consequently, many of my works are painted in those styles. I also paint what I call "Situational figurative" compositions which portray a human situation such as the paintings, "Getting Ready" or "Can I Play." Thank you for visiting my website and I sincerely hope that you will enjoy my work. Whether you be interested in landscapes, still life, any of my oil paintings, or fine art in general, it's my hope as an artist to provide you with a pleasurable browse time. Please come back and visit again!
