For your viewing pleasure, my work  - For Sale & those pieces
held in private collection.
The Acrylic Project -  

One of my greatest challenges as an Artist is when to stop
- when is the piece done? Sometimes I feel I could paint
forever. This is an important question because it leads one
to ask, "Is this artist prolific? Will he continue to produce
and will I continue to have opportunities to collect more of
his work?" Important for sure.

Of course the big difference between oils and acrylic is in
the drying time. The difference is simple.

An 18 x 24 Oil painting might take me 100 hours with
minimal drying time. Painting with Acrylic, the work drys
in minutes.

So I wonder am I creating two levels or can I keep up the
same quality and growth working in both. What do you
