Artistic Musings

As a painter, I'm constantly learning and growing, and hungry for more information, more things to try and more experiences to learn from. I find that other painters and artists feel the same way. So in this section, I will regularly share thoughts and considerations and experiences that concern my life as an artist.

Musings 1: Sketching with a Purpose

Musings 2: Evaluating Abstractions

Musings 3: Still Life Variations

Musings 4: Travel Journals
