Paintings

I have always been a fan of the artist Bob Ross and his style of painting.  I also like artists Wilson Bickford Jerry, Yarnell, and Kevin Hill.  After the wife and I took a Wine & Painting class I enjoyed it so much that I started painting.  My most recent paintings are listed at the top with older paintings after that.

Here’s a time lapse video of the process of painting my Italian oil painting requested by my daughter.  You can see the video by clicking HERE.

My daughter asked that I paint her an Italian scene so I did one based on Kevin Hill's work but added steps and a door.

When artist Kevin Hill came to Florida I attended his multi-day class which I greatly enjoyed and learned a great deal. This is my first tropical scene based on Kevin's work.
