Beach Sunrise
Oil on canvas, 24x48 inches, 2014

The glow of light at sunrise or sunset is one of my favorite subjects, regardless of the location.

I've recently started a major emphasis on classically painted oil portraits. Along with this new piece, you can find out more at portraits. I'm also painting equine subjects, including both draft and pleasure horses..
