I find my old art works in my computer

I’ve changed several laptops/computers along these years. Every time I change a new one I left some files in the previous one. Of course I back up all the files in a separate drive but I don’t need to fill the new computer with bunch of older documents that I didn’t even look at. Couple […]

Oil painting – Creek rocks

I’ve always wanted to paint landscape. I admire those beautiful landscape paintings with loose brush stroke full of expression and accurate light and shadow form. But it is out of my comfortable zone. So I tried something with less “land” elements such as field, grass, hills or forest. I picked up this piece to do […]
