Michigan Pigeon Club

I joined the Michigan Pigeon Club. These three homing pigeons are ready to fly, but we have a young red-tailed hawk in the neighborhood who sits in the top of the pine tree and watches the hen house. I don’t want to loose these beauties so no freedom for them for the time being.


Purple Bluff

This is a painting I made after learning about Wayne Thiebaud. I followed his composition and perspective but haven’t achieved his buttery paint application. This work is 14″ x 14″ oil on canvas glued onto plywood.

Private Instruction



If anyone is interested in private instruction, I recently coached a friend in creating this canvas for her living room.

I can come to your home or you can come to my studio. Spring , Summer and Fall the studio is open. In winter it is closed.


Forest floors are in bloom with anemone, wood phlox, bluebells, violets, hepatica and Dutchman’s britches. They’ll be gone in a month when the canopy shades them out. May is ephemeral.

This is a four by six foot oil painting on masonite.
