All For One

"All For One" a recently completed commission, is based on a portfolio painting completed in art school. Dumas wrote the story to take place in the early 1600s, so I restricted a modern equivalent to the common palette available at that time consisting of black, white, yellow ocher and a warm red as the only source pigments to paint this 26" x 18" oil on linen work.

Failed Birdnapper

I just finished a small 12" x 9" oil begun on location and finished in the studio with additional research. It is of a sea rover who is attempting to recapture parakeets that got loose, originally taken from Australia. The idea that world travelers have been "migrating" species by virtue of their maritime travels for centuries was the inspiration for the final painting.
