In the studio now ... Come back often to watch a selection of my paintings develop from start to finish. I usually work on several paintings at a time, with multiple steps of glazes planned out ahead of time, each glaze needing to dry before the next goes on. You'll see several underway now.
Below, you can turn on the slide show, use right and left arrows to proceed or go back, or click on individual images at the bottom of the large image. You can pause the slideshow at any time by clicking on the pause sign on the upper left.
