About My Paintings

Oil paint has been my medium of choice. I've taken lessons both formerly and informally from local artists and continue to expand my knowledge on my own. It's been interesting and fun so I continue to paint. I paint with oil over acrylic or strictly with oils. It all depends on how I feel that day. Lately I've been painting on Masonite panels that has been sanded and coated with several coats of gesso to seal them. I like their durability and prefer to paint on those.

In 2005 I became a member of Terrebonne Fine Arts Guild. This is the organization that runs Downtown Art Gallery 630 in Houma, La. Many of the members show and sell their work in this gallery and it's worth a visit to see all the beautiful paintings of local artists. They're a nice group of people and I think it would be an enjoyable visit.
