Vermont Landscape Oil Painting Posters and Pillows Available

Yesterday I posted links to canvas prints that are now available of my two large Vermont landscape paintings. I've had lots of people show interest in these images but many don't have the extra cash for a canvas print or an original piece of art. So I now have poster prints available at a much more affordable price of about $20 for posters that are roughly 30"x 15".

I also tried a product for fun and actually ended up liking it quit a bit. I put both paintings on a double sided pillow.

Canvas Prints of my new Original Landscapes

Over the past seven months I painted two new large landscape paintings. As of today those paintings are now available to purchase as high quality canvas prints in my online store. The original art isn't yet ready for purchase but will likely be available sometime soon. The links are below.

Children's Book Character Designs

         Part of the fun of each new book is designing characters but its also extremely time consuming and can be hard to really develop each character as much as one would like. Doing a book series enables me to delve in a bit deeper with each new book to develop the characters a bit further than the first book.

         For the second book in the silas series we get to find out what this energetic granny wears to work, or what does she wear on a  fun day with the grandkids? The book also introduces some new characters. Below I've posted some of my color samples and the final chosen samples.
The first book in the series is available for purchase at

Wine and Art Snowcase

   I don't get a chance to do a lot in terms of meeting the public with my art much these days so when I do it's all the better.  This past weekend I was at a local show with my landscapes and decided to bring some of my books along as well. As usual with these events, I didn't make a bunch of sales but I did meet a couple of people who may hire me for small gigs down the road. I also had the opportunity to talk with many of the other artists and got some great tips and advice. In particular I was happy that I'm finally starting to figure out a setup that isn't extremely hard to put together and looks pretty good compared to past events.
