Living in Minnesota has taught me one thing, enjoy winter. My new paintings came about after driving by lit up ice rinks at night for years and thinking how interesting they looked. As often as possible I paint on location, sitting in my car at night in the cold with small lights to light my canvas. Other times I work in my studio, enlarging images and creating new ones from photographs or smaller studies. With winter fast approaching I am gearing up for new work and will be posting them weekly.
