After an absence of nearly 4 years, Vickie and I spent a little over 2 weeks in Italy again this year and visited a few favorite places, but spent most of the time in areas that we had not visited before.  We spent a few days along the Amalfi Coast area, days in the hill towns of the Tuscan country side and finished our time there in our favorite part of Italy, the Cinque Terre!

Now that we have been back for a few months, you will see many new exciting images and products from us at the shows this year!  I already have 3 new Italian images with several more coming.  All of the originals from last year are also now available in canvas and paper prints in any size.

Vickie and I spent endless hours combing the Italian beaches along the Amalfi Coast and the Cinque Terre and came home with over 30 lbs of Sea Glass that she will be incorporating into her new Sea Glass line of jewelry.  This is going to be a very beautiful and distinctive line of jewelry that you won't be able to find out there anywhere!

Thanks to all of you that support and enjoy our creations and we hope to see you at some of our shows in your area soon!

This is the first painting I have done in almost a year! It has been a year since I had back and knee surgery and even though my recovery has been really great, I haven't been able to sit or stand for any length of time. It has just been recently that with continued healing, I am now able to do what I have missed doing for so long, PAINT!

This new painting is called "The Promise" and is 16x20 in size. It is painted on canvas that has been mounted to masonite. I have used this surface to paint on for many years and it gives me the stiff surface that I like with the "tooth" of the canvas. It's a great combination!

I hope you enjoy this new piece and check back soon as I am well into the next painting. A new courtyard scene from Italy that I think will be call "The Contest"!










This new painting is called "Italian Bouquet" and is 11x14 in size. It is painted on  masonite. This is another in the large series of Italy paintings that I have been working on for many years now. This incredible little corner jewel was found in the tiny hilltop town of Civita Di Bagnoregio. We had no idea what was in store for us on our visit here! This amazing little, and I mean little town was a painting on every street! I will be doing more paintings of this beautiful town. In fact, I have 2 new paintings laid out to paint with one of the on the easel now. Check back again soon to see them on my Original Oils Page.












This new painting was inspired by our trip to the small town of Volterra. It is a 16x20 Oil on Masonite and I have titled it "In Need Of Repair". Another Tuscan hill town we visited last year.  Italy is so beautiful and the Italians are master crafters. They have the talent to make the new look old and to restore the old and maintain it's rustic charm! I hope you enjoy my interpretation of this beautiful country! We can't wait for our next trip back


Thanks for stopping by my website!
