This painting was different for me in that it's the first of many to be painted on the surface that Richard Schmid recommends. It's a double primed Belgian linen canvas taped to a piece of masonite to be stretched later (should the painting be a success). I like how it turned out ... so, I'll be stretching it soon. It's 14" x 11" in size.

This commission will probably prove to be one of the best opportunities for me, as a portrait artist. I'm very thankful to Richland Fine Art Gallery for considering me to paint it. I understand that Mr. Vance was a very gracious individual. The size is 30"x40".

Kristy is a special person! She can't walk now ... but she will one day. Her mother wanted an oil portrait of Kristy walking with the Lord on the beach so to be an encouragement for Kristy. I enjoyed painting the portrait. The size is 24"x30".

This Santa represents a mid 1800's Santa as he gave a speech at the Land Between the Lakes Home Place. In those days, children were happy to to get an orange in their stocking come Christmas morning. I enjoyed painting this one very much! 12 x 16 inches are the dimensions.

This portrait has special meaning to me because it's someone that I've known for a very long time. He has been a great influence in my life. Thanks Chief, for the faithful help you've been to me over the many years! This painting is only 11 x 14.
