This painting is the companion piece to the one of Dave Dornan below. This one is quite a bit smaller. I wanted to not only do a portrait of Dave but a painting of him working. If you have ever watched him make a painting you are well aware of how entertaining and effective his approach is. I finished these two up about 2 years ago.

I did this little painting(along with another) for a fundraiser last summer it is 12"x12" oil on panel. For some reason this one did not sell. The other one was gone before I could take a picture of it. I really like this one and find it really fun. I think I am going to do a larger version.

This is one great guy. Not only is he out serving and protecting, but he just got back from a tour in the middle east. After painting someone and their siblings you get a feeling for a family, the Mitchell family is amazing and has all my respect. I tried some new things with the chemistry of this painting and I really like how the paint flowed.

This little gal is incredible. She is a force and she will definitely make her mark on the world. Rarely do you meet someone with so much personality. At the ripe old age of 5 she is and expert at reading, writing, playing the violin and pretty much anything you can do she can do better.

This is a painting I did a couple years ago. The painting is of my professor David Dornan who I ended up apprenticing for after graduating from the University of Utah. He is a prolific painter. Dave is also one of the most generous people I know. So much of what I have learned over the years about painting is connected to something Dave taught me. This painting is 5 x 5 feet and is currently hanging in the Spring Salon in Springville, Utah. Go check it out.

I am going to start another blog here soon and fill it with the work I have done recently. I thought it would be fun to document the journey of a Grad Student trying to find himself. The work will be all over the place, however it will illustrate how I came to find what I want to paint.

This is the lovable dog of the renown painter Erin Westenskow Berret. We did a trade last year and I could not be happier with the Triumph Motorcycle I got in return. She is a great painter, check out her link in the upper right corner. Every painter needs a great dog. From what I have heard Steve was an amazing companion. Thanks Erin!
