The Elusive Butterfly - fantasy painting by

One of my newest works…… off the easel!
Maybe we just need to have a different way of viewing life sometimes. Our desires may be within reach after all.

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!

  • It’s back to the thoughts of the old 120 gallon salt water aquarium i used to have.I LOVED those butterfly fish but they were impossible to catch when you had to do a major tank overhaul!! :)
