Colourful Contemporary Art

I am a professional artist and art teacher.
I paint the tenacious bits of wild that defy human activity in a manner inspired by
my fascination with fossils and designed to make the viewer look deeper.
Studio visits by luck or by appointment are welcome.

I Love Sumac

I've loved sumac since I was a kid.
 I love their umbrella shape, and how their clumping behavior, creates great hiding spots for small creatures .
Especially, I love their autumn colour. 
This is a favorite clump, growing at Yarmouth Center Line and John Wise. I pass it on my way to the Art Emporium, and admire it every time. 
The painting is 16x16,

But I'm toying with cropping it to a more traditional  16x12, what do you think?

  1. Jerry Says "If it doesn't add to the panting, it takes away" so he likes the smaller size. Me too. Love the painting, all the lovely texture.
