Local Interest on KVIE
 Click the Local interest link above to go on line and view this segment of Rob on the Road when he came to my studio in Oak Park and interviewed me about my art, my studio and my art journey through life.  He did an amazing job of making a beautiful story.

 Thank you to everyone in my life and in my world who has been part of my art journey and for all the wonderful people I've had the opportunity to interface with because of art and creativity somehow connecting us together.

I'm grateful and humbled by this opportunity to share my story with a wider public audience and hopefully some of the life lessons I've learned on this journey as an artist will bring hope, inspiration, and joy to those watching this segment of Rob on The Road, which airs publicly on TV Monday Dec. 23 at 7:30 pm - 8 pm.

Let the journey continue!  Make Art!

Plein Air painting from Wednesday Morning Urban Landscape Painting Club

This is a little plein air piece I did awhile ago with my painting buddies during one of our Wednesday morning urban landscape plein air outings.  Lots of fun, good artists friends, a good painting challenge and generally lunch afterwards makes Wednesday my favorite day of the week.

3 Persimmons Still Life Study

My still life study from Elio's class at my studio on Tuesday.  I am learning so much and I just love listening to him speak about art, painting, and galleries.  He is an awesome teacher and I feel so fortunate to have someone of his caliber teaching a weekly (mostly) painting class at my studio.

My Pink Bike

A plein air painting I did of my pink bike during one of our Wednesday morning Urban Plein Air Painting outings downtown.  This one I did have to go back to the studio and do a little more refinement on.
