Paintings are difficult to display online due to glass reflections. They are better seen first hand. If you would like to come and see a painting, or are interested in purchasing one, please email me, phone, or use the contact page for a question.
I have added galleries of paintings (framed with glass), scanning them without glass on the Contact, Scans, Sale Item, Info page to see the images with more clarity.
