Welcome. I love to paint and would like to share my paintings with you. Most days I will try to create and place a new painting here. To purchase click the link, for this small piece, Ebay bidding starts at $100. The value of this work of art is $550.00 USD. As my gift to you, for the 7 days of the auction this piece is in from the day it is created, you may start bidding at $100 (before the price becomes $550.00, if the piece survives the auction.) This is my way of saying thank you for enjoying my work and keeping me creating new pieces almost everyday. Your interest stimulates and inspires me and has made me a better painter for it. Sign up for my emails and I will send you an image of my daily painting every time I do a new one.

Concentration took over my common sense and, even with gloves on, my fingers got so numb that I could not open the clip on my board to put away my paper towels.
