Most of my paintings are executed in oils, often over the top of other media.
Many are visual stories that contain partially hidden words or imagery where the homespun and the familiar become symbols of timeless truth. My hope is that you will discover additional levels of meaning as you look at the paintings closely.
If you get inspired and encouraged by my art -
If you can glimpse the great, overarching purpose behind life and creation -
If you can catch facets of the wonder and beauty of God's character -
If you can begin to see beyond the present -
- Then my paintings have succeeded!
