  • I finally have a straight on headshot that I didn’t have to take myself! Hooray It’s not blurry, at a weird angle or in bad lighting! Look at all those grey hairs peeking through... Thanks @filmartist.ca for the great shot

  • If you’re particular about your whites staying white over time like me, you’ll want to use Radiant White @gamblincolors It’s the best white I’ve ever used and true to their word, this white by Gamblin delivers on their non-yellowing promise. Pricey but worth it! #tipoftheday

  • Everyone who sees my paint blobs are fascinated by them. Admittedly, they are pretty cool to look at and on occasion fun to poke at the squishiness. Every artist has their own way of setting up their palette for maximum efficiency and convenience. This is mine as I work on multiple pieces requiring a lot of paint to create the many layers and texture in my work. In the beginning, I would preserve each of my paint blobs with plastic until I realised that the outer layer hardens into a firm, yet flexible film becoming it’s very own Saran Wrap! How cool is that?! #artiststudio #oilpaint

  • Found these old accordion promotional pamphlets stuffed in a forgotten folder this week. Since they were made for a past show, I couldn’t show them as they were. During my down time, I cut them into cute little individual cards, doubling my advertising materials! Love saving money and reducing my trash. #tipoftheday

  • The AMAZING PAINTER Tony Sherman liked my post! Granted, his finger might have slipped or his dog accidentally stepped on his phone but let’s not get ourselves lost in the minor details cause...this tiny gesture is just the COOLEST! If you are one of those rare souls that have never seen his work, google him this moment! You will not be disappointed! @tonyscherman Thanks for making my day!
