Good news art lovers! My portrait “Lucy” recently sold, and a new painting is on its way to Abbozzo Gallery this weekend!

“I Will Not Jettison My Dreams”, oil on canvas, 48″x24″ is the last painting I am completing before heading north to The Yukon Territory to paint. Please message me with any questions and of course you may contact Abbozzo Gallery as well.

This painting is all about Laura’s grandfather’s drafting chair…I had to figure out how to incorporate Laura, and imply their connection, in the piece.

At Bus 142 in Alaska, Christopher McCandless prepares a special meal of the moose he shot, along with some berries, and a small bit of smoke to keep away the mosquitoes. The spoon is from his childhood home in Annandale, VA and the small knife was a present from his friend Jan Burres.
