Poogan's Porch

Poogan's Porch

Jennifer and I ate here on our honeymoon in Charleston, SC back in August. (I recommend fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits!) I had been here a few years before with my family and snapped a photo of the front porch. Our trip inspired me to paint this scene.

Oil on masonite

9 x 12

This is my girlfriend's puggle, Ollie. I gave this to her as a gift also, and she wasn't expecting this one.

Downtown Snow

Knoxville Snow Scene

I painted this for my girlfriend and gave it to her as a Christmas gift. She hinted around that she would love a nighttime painting of snow, and we surprisingly had a decent snow at the beginning of December.

This is a commissioned piece that I painted for a teacher I had in High School, Rob Ailey. Cylas is a pretty cool dog! Rob and his wife love it.

Bag of Groceries


Oil on Panel

The Art Club met today and discussed plans for a silent auction to raise money for a trip to the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga. I painted this little 8x10 in about 2 hours and will donate it to the auction.
