Inspiration for new paintings is never hard to find. As a young man, I worked as a day laborer at local farms. Things that were ingrained during that experience would come forth many years later to serve as my muse during a period when I wasn't sure what I should paint. Like anything in life, once you discover it, you wonder why it took so long to arrive.

Today, continued inspiration comes from our family farm, where time spent outdoors with animals is priority, and weekly day trips spent sketching and photographing the Ohio region.

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your interest.
