Oil Painting

Artist’s Statement

Although this is not always the norm, generally I like to paint landscapes and still life in oil; portraits in pastel. Quick sketches of anything in pen, ink, and watercolor are great fun. Every piece of work is a challenge and a potential success or disaster, and I often wonder how it would be to start a painting knowing it was going to turn out well. Maybe someday I’ll reach that point, but would it still be as much fun to do?
