After a couple years, I’m still not feeling inspired to paint. It happens to me. Whatever muse drives me abandons me and forcing it results in pieces I quickly trash. Sometimes many years will pass.
I have however been taking photographs and I’ve grown to love my digital camera as well as my iPhone camera. Just like with painting, digital has major advantages over traditional. No film processing!
Landscapes and nature seems to be my forte and for now I’m going to run with it. Even though I live in a major metropolitan area, there is plenty of nature around and fall is in full swing.
This one has been in a state of “almost complete” for several years. I recently dusted it off and finished it. Prints available from my website.

So this for me is exciting. My art will appear at Grooveground in Collingswood, New Jersey starting February 7, 2014 going through the rest of the month. The address is:
647 Haddon Ave, Collingswood, NJ 08108
I had originally done this as a background for a different piece. A piece that I completely abandoned. Some paintings are meant to be and the previous incarnation of this one was not. It sat around for quite some time until I recently rediscovered it. A little more work and a few touchups and it is ready to go.
Prints from my abstract page.
I called this one finished once before and then decided it wasn’t. I pulled it and started reworking it but was not happy with the result. That happens sometimes. When it does the piece gets put aside for a later date. Today was the later date for Cloudy Sky. To achieve the current state of completed required a complete reworking of the mountains in new painting software I’ve been working in. It is called ArtRage and considering how inexpensive it is, I’m finding it quite impressive.
It is a simple monochromatic landscape with mountains in the foreground and a cloudy sky above. Prints available on my Landscape page.
