Don is a native of the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area and currently resides some 15 miles north in Liberty Township, Ohio. He attended University of Cincinnatiís College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning and graduated with a BFA in Printmaking. Since graduation he has pursued a career in the printing/prepress industries and only paused briefly from time to time to use his fine art inclinations. Theater design (sets and lighting), painting, drawing, photography, antique restoration and lately stained glass have all been areas of interest.

Although Don grew up and was trained during the abstract expressionist and concept-oriented mid-century art scene, he has always felt a closer affinity with the currents and movements of the early 20th century. He currently works in a contemporary realist style and admires the work of the following people: John Twachtman, William McKendry Snyder, Claude Monet, Louis C. Tiffany, Maxfield Parish and Edward Hopper.

I've posted the newest painting in the Gregory Creek series; small but mighty complicated. Water reflections and transparency give you much to work on.


New Work Posted
I've been painting hard this week, trying to finish up work started before the Wyoming Art Show. I received 1st place for a new stained glass window I just completed and best display award (paintings and stained glass). Soon I'll try to get my stained glass online for display. New painting posted are both plein air: "Gorman House & Smoke House" and "Glenwood Gardens 1". I've completed a new Beckett Ponds painting and will be posting it as soon as I can take a photo.

Shows currently on the schedule for this year: Loveland Paint the Town, 6/7-6/13 with wet paint sale 6/13, Mason Art Fair, 9/19, Loveland Images of the Past, 10/3, Hyde Park Square Art Show, 10/3.

I've posted a couple of new paintings finished this week. We're starting into the plein air painting season and the Fleckenstein Park Barn is the first of more to come. I'm taking paintings in this weekend to see if I'm successful in my entry to the Hyde Park Art Show, to be held Sunday October, 3.

Enjoy the new work,

There are three new paintings posted today. The two Beckett Ponds paintings are to be hung in a new model home by Pendragon Homes in the Carmelle subdivision, Mason, Ohio. I will have six or seven paintings on display there. If you live in the area, please stop by to check them out!
Thanks, Don
