Breaking Dawn

January 7, 2013

Breaking Dawn 14×14, unframed, unstretched Original painting $980.00 USD The river at the breaking of the dawn.  The trees are still dark, but the sun is glinting off the water.  It is still and quiet.  I can hear some bird music and the gentlest lap of water against the banks of the shore.

Why oil paint?

October 25, 2012

I got my first set of oil paints at age 10. I have been oil painting ever since. I have tried acrylics but they just don’t measure up to oils in any way except one. Can anyone say non toxic? When I read this article by Gary Bolyer it made me happy that I paint […]

pointillism oil painting of sailboat on an ocean of peach and mauve light

Sailing in an ocean of peach and mauve

August 22, 2012

I like simple subjects best because the pointillism is the detail! I like making clear through my art the illusive beauty of the world. I don’t see the world as solid, but as energy and points of light. Pointillism expresses my vision in a satisfying way. Original oil painting 16×16, unframed, unstretched Original $1,280.00 USD

New Pointillist Paintings

June 15, 2012

I have been working on a new series of pointillist paintings which I call sacred places.  These are churches, mosques and other holy places in beautiful natural settings.  Most of these are very small scale, only 6×6 inches!

People Love Pointillism!!

June 8, 2012

I am sitting here on my peaceful deck overlooking the Schuylkill River with my friend, Cindy.  She loves pointillism and I really think it has a universal appeal.  Ever since Seurat developed it back during the impressionist era, the appeal of pointillism has endured.

Pointillism

June 3, 2012

I see the world in pointillism.  I always have. I have memories of being put to bed and seeing millions of points of light scintillating in the dim room.  I asked my mother if she could see it.  Even now, as I look around my dimly lit living room at 1 o’clock in the morning […]

A rare water color painting!

April 21, 2012

Walt Whitman reflecting on the meaning of life with my kitty curled up in the lower right hand corner!  I did this back in the day.  It is not pointillism and it makes me want to get those watercolors back out of the drawer and paint!

Unleashing pointillism paintings in the forest

February 18, 2012

I like to live my life flying under the radar. I have been painting all my life but never felt compelled to put a lot of energy into showing my art.  Then one day the owner of a fine art printing company said to me, “Your pointillism paintings are so beautiful. But if a tree […]

Multitasking Heaven

December 26, 2011

I have spent years developing my style of painting. I know a painting is successful when it’s finished if I just enjoy looking at it for hours. Liking the finished product is probably the most important aspect for me, but liking the process is really important because I spend hours and hours creating each artwork. […]
