I love clouds formations and never tire of studying them. The skies are always changing, -perhaps moment to moment-and I paint to capture the moods of light on sky, water, and land.
I feel really fortunate to live on the coast of North Carolina with so much beauty from which to draw inspiration. Every day is beautiful ...yet no two days are ever alike!
I paint with oils on both paper and 1.5" deep gallery-wrapped canvas -(the painted edges require no framing), My technique involves glazing with very transparent paint layers-each layer must dry before adding another layer to allow the luminous soft quality of water, land and sky to become apparent.
Please enjoy the website as I build it and watch for new paintings- which range from 5x7, 12x12 to 36 x48 and larger -some for available for sale at the artSHAK in Southport NC, and also from my private working studio in Southport .
Thanks to the cloudappreciationsociety.org. several of my paintings have been featured on their website
A large thank you to my growing number of customers for your continued support and for your positive comments!
