In the Midst of Spring

As this winter seems to continue to get longer and longer, I continue to try to think of the joy of Spring that is allegedly just around the corner. Here's a studio painting I did last year where I was trying to capture the incredibly thick air that is damp and cool, yet somehow comfortable. It creates an unrivaled atmospheric quality and one I am sure I'll attempt to capture again.

This painting is available. For information on the piece, contact me at 219-241-1392 or by email at

Uselss Art

A decent video from TED, about how an art curator learned to love the simple and silly as much as the "serious" aspects of art. Worth the watch.

Sargent Watercolor Discussion

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has uploaded a conversation with Richard Ormond, grandnephew of John Singer Sargent and one of the foremost authorities on the painter and the man. This man knows probably more about Sargent than anyone else and is a very informative discussion of the man and his work.  The video is an hour long. and also gives some insights into Sargent's models and studio.
The exhibition will continue through January 20, and there's an excellent catalog of the show.
