After 45 years of making my carved and painted pictures, artwork keeps flowing out of me. There's never a problem in coming up with ideas. Instead there's just not enough time.

 

*************

Support the arts, buy artwork!

Consider a gift to you or someone else - anniversary, weddings, Christmas, birthday, death, grandchildren or for other special events. Discounts apply to some older pieces, please enquire. Buy on time, I do payment plans. I do credit card sales. I do commissions, usually in the winter months. And yes, I ship.

 Sales are applause - they encourage an artist to produce more work!
