Paintings Find Their Rightful Homes

Painting is about the mileage. Hundreds of my paintings have been painted over or trashed as scappers. When I complete a successful painting, I often hang it in my home for a time. It helps me know if there are changes that need to be made. Because painting is so personal, I grow emotionally attached to many art pieces. I want them to find a good home. In 2009, 10 paintings were sold at my galleries that had been painted in 2006 or 2007. This made me realize that a lonely orphaned painting can find a loving home.

I remember the weekend in October 2006 I painted this 10 x 12 of Morro Bay State Park. It was my first time at the park and I camped all weekend.
