Often those quick sketches are really familiar things, like this view out my kitchen door, over […]

Let’s Go For A Ride

I was honored that this painting was recently featured on Facebook by Keith Linwood Stover. When I was little I remember hearing, “Let’s go for a ride.” This meant going for a ride in the car to look at things, to see new places, and just to get out of the house. Funny how just […]
