"Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul." - Edgar Allan Poe

Been thinking of making my apple pie for Thanksgiving and this painting that I did a year ago, popped into my head...... love the juiciness of the apples.... YUM!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Still on a learning curve...

Since I'm still new at this blogging, I failed to realize that you have to become a "Follower" to comment on my blogs (and I'm hoping you will).  Look in the Right Hand Column for Followers... I just moved it up to the top of the column so you can all find it... looking forward to hearing from you.

Check out my Illustration Blog...

Go take a look at my newest blog for my children's books and illustration art under my other blogs....

I'm equally passionate about both my fine art and my children's illustrations and this blog will enable me to show my latest work and interact with you all about it.   You will see my sketches and how I progress through to a finished illustration as well as seeing some fun stuff and doodles, etc. Thanks for looking !
I welcome any comments you might have and invite you to join and I look forward to interacting with my friends and followers.  Thanks... now it's back to the drawing board :)))

In the Moment

We had wonderful weather last May while driving from Antwerp to Amsterdam, but I was able to sketch this moment when the spring showers blew in... finally got around to painting it.
