The first post in this blog

In this blog, I'm going to write about art.

Yes, my art, of course, but I'm gonna chip in two cents occasionally on other artists and on art in general.

I'm into that whole "art is the window into the soul" thing. I think I'll talk about that now and again too. 

I like to be outside - obviously, if you've seen my paintings. So if you don't want to hear about (in addition to art) hiking, fishing, canoeing, and the proper role of craft beer in the modern outdoor experience, go somewhere else. There's a lot of Internet out there...

But I'm especially here to have fun. I'm going to focus on the aspects of art that bring joy to me, to my loved ones, and to art lovers everywhere. And I plan to tell a few stories and share some of the experiences that no doubt inform some of the paintings I do.
