I will be doing a couple commission pieces for a collector.  She likes the Floral III- Violet and Floral II - Scarlet but will need them in larger sizes.  The Violet piece will be just a larger scale replica but the Scarlet will be going in an entry way and will be tall and skinny.  In deciding the look and feel I like to lay it out like this:
She likes the look of the middle one so this will help me determine the size of canvas to stretch.  I'm excited to get these started as well as a couple nursery paintings from a previous collector.

30" x 40" x 1"





*Extra thick impasto layers of oil paint in shades of vibrant pink, green, and yellow against a black and gray abstract background.  

This palette knife painting is pretty much my best attempt at placing the biggest globs of paint on a canvas ever.  I used big circles of bright pinks, greens, light yellows, black and white.  The depth and texture on this painting is by far the most I've done.  It turned out quite modern and fun. 

This painting came about for a little furniture store (that's a big hit) called Tammi's Finder's Keepers.  Tammi restores old furniture and creates the most beautiful home decor ensembles.  I go down to her store take pictures and create paintings to match the room(s).  It's a fun challenge and I really enjoy it.

London Traffic on Redbubble Home Page Feature

Getting your work on the coveted homepage of Redbubble is a pretty big honor.  I was pleasantly surprised to see 'London Traffic' featured today.  Redbubble is a wonderful community of artists, photographers, poets, etc that come together for a variety of reasons.  You can post your work for others to buy it, comment on it, enter it into contests, you can blog, set up a website... the possibilities are crazy!  It's a fantastic way to mingle with fellow artists and a great way to get feedback on your work.  Check it out if you have a chance.  I highly recommend it!

Hidden - Sold!

Thank you to a new collector who recently purchased Hidden! Hidden was one of my initial abstract paintings that I did NOT do with a palette knife. I've recently had a lot of interest in my abstract paintings and hope to be adding some new ones soon.

Nursery Paintings

A close family member is having her first baby and she wants to mark the occasion with something special; my palette knife paintings are among her favorite things, so she commissioned me for the job. She brought me a quilt that she is going to decorate with and asked me to use it as the basis for a few commemorative paintings we will hang on the new baby's wall....

If you have a quilt or bedding set you would like me to duplicate as a knife painting please contact me at
