It's useful to learn something about how an artist works to become an informed collector. Is the artist painting an original composition? Painting from scratch involves hundreds of little decisions that are made as the painting progresses. I don't copy photos or paint over photos as I've heard some do. I don't copy other people's paintings. I don't produce the same painting or almost the same painting over and over. Each of my paintings is unique and painted by me. Most artists can show you work in progress photos if you have any questions about how a work was created or how an artist works. These slide shows give you an idea of how I approach a painting. My approach varies a bit with each painting as you can see.

Short slide show demos of some of my paintings in progress accompanied by music. Enjoy!
