MAKE AN IMPACT WITH B/W ILLUSTRATION!

After years of painting, I recently had the opportunity to do something completely different...create black and white illustrations for comic-style books, animation, and social media. This bold technique is a striking contrast to oil painting, but each has its place. Below you will find examples of both styles. Do you envision a hard-hitting social media illustration or campaign? Would you like a beautiful piece for your wall? Let's talk about it!

They say, "paint what you like"...well, one thing I like is vintage Volkswagens, so here are a few recent small paintings of bugs and buses of yesteryear.

What a fantastic time we had there in 2007. And what wonderful painting subjects...

This is the Tuscan hillside village where we stayed for a week, after visiting Venice, Florence, and Cinque Terre. Tuscany was wonderful - great food, beautiful scenery, and roads that contribute to the Italian love of driving!

HOUSE PAINTING! A PORTRAIT OF YOUR HOME

Most of us feel a real connection to our homes; our home is where life takes place! Usually I will have family members in the yard...kids playing, a woman enjoying her gardening, etc. If you would like to discuss this, for yourself or as a gift for someone, please get in touch!
