"Skipping Stones" is a palette knife painting of the view behind my neighborhood library. I live in a village in the forest which has a river winding through a lot of it. These boys were happily skipping tones until they heard the church chimes announce the time. They then dashed off to the library to play computer games. And here I was thinking, isn't it nice that kids can still take pleasure in the simple things. Well I guess something is better than nothing.

"Off The Path" is so fresh that I actually can't take it off my easel. I just finished it last night. It was created with a palette knife, in oil, on a 36"x24" gallery-wrapped stretched canvas.I imagine it to be a place forgotten but if you're fortunate enough, you stumble upon this sweet little rest stop. It might have been an old farm or someones summer cabin. But for now, it lays hidden and forgotten from the world.
Marion Street Gallery in Oak Park, IL will be showing this painting. If you have any questions regarding my art you can contact me or any of my galleries.

Fabric has always given me trouble so I thought I would attack it head on by wrapping a white linen napkin around something. Can you guess what's hidden inside?
