I like to create close up floral or landscape paintings that are somewhat stylized.  I use many layers of acrylic paint and can smooth out the gradations of color with various mediums.   These are from original photographs or are made up from a variety of photos or my imagination.  I display my work at various art festivals and previously in galleries in Kansas City, Missouri, Taos, New Mexico, Overland Park, Kansas, etc.  I've drawn or painted my whole life.
