"Tibby" is an 11"X14" oil on linen of one of our recent cruise buddies.  I'm always looking for a special kind of character; one who exudes a special quality.  Tibby is such a refined and charming Virginian.  She says what she thinks but is so very adept at making those who appear in her orbit completely at ease.  Both Tibby and  her husband Bill are very special people.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:  I was fortunate to have a very good instructor in oil painting when I began in that medium some years ago.  He taught me the basics, instructing me to "paint what you see."  Years later, other teaching artists suggested that I change gears, telling me to "paint what you feel."  So, I like to think my oil painting is a good blend of realism and expressionism.

 

I find sculpting in clay an exhilarating challenge.  I'll embark on a sculpting project only if a subject truly moves me toward a vision.  Once I complete the clay model, I rely on gifted artisans at a local foundry/studio to complete the piece in bronze.

 

I hope you enjoy traveling with me through some of my work.  Thanks for stopping by....
