Acrylic on Panel
12″ x 24″

A friend needed a painting for an auction she was doing for the Soap Lake Elementary/Middle School so I thought I’d have another go at this old McCormac International. I had a 12″ x 24″ frame so that dictated the size ratio.

I’ve been practicing art in one form or another for most of my life and have been painting since about 2003. I do explore other medium but primarily use either acrylic or oil paints.

For me art has always been about the enjoyment of drawing and creating. It’s about challenging my eye, my brain, and my hands to recreate what I am seeing on a two dimensional surface.

So far, my paintings have been influenced by anything resembling old boots. In other words, anything that shows it’s character & history in the cracks and creases caused by use and abuse, weathering and age.

Other than that I paint things that are readily available. Anything around the house that looks interesting enough to keep me painting!
