Parking Ramp Series

    Since Covid-19 started the climate of our lives has change greatly, my day job was affected by the changes. The bustling of workers left and downtowns were left vacant, Homeless and the issues that followed became very apparent. This series is based on the view of the Parking Booth Attendant either reflections on the day or views through the video surveillance system.

What's New October 2021

What's New

Oil Painting is what is new!! I am hosting Oil Painting Classes at the Solar Arts Building Studio # 205 Monday and Wednesday Nights. I had been give a lot of oil paint over the years as artists either gave it up, or they didn't want to haul it across the country. Well I also had a pretty good collection started myself.. Any Who, practice make perfect..

In The Studio

Currently in the class we are working on Seascapes, and it is a bit of a challenge.

Here are a few painting that i have been working on. I feel good about my skies, but my ocean waves are still needing a bit of work. Practice makes, well you know the line.


I also have been doing a lot of work in my drawing books daily. I often have slow times at the daily grind. so I have been taking advantage of the time.

We started up the On Location Drawing Co-op group again with support from Art To Change the World.  Here watercolor I did at the Lyndale Rose Garden last weekend.
