I'm a lucky one. Since 2013, I've lived in the middle of the Catskills. I paint the mountains that surround me and the fish I catch. Some days I fool myself into thinking I'm a modern day Thomas Cole. Some days I feel like I should be Bob Ross' understudy. I keep on thinking I'll get bored or frustrated or tired of painting the same thing again and again, and then I take another look.

These paintings also have also appear in my visual essays for Hyperallergic, inspiration for book art, the walls of the Spruceton Inn. Some I have for sale in my shop. (Including prints!)

 

Fish are largely life size, between 8"-14" long. Landscapes are between intimate 6" x 8" little guys and big (at least for me) ones 22" x 30".
