"The (Artist) should not only (create) what he sees

before his eyes, but also what he sees inside of himself."

Casper David Friedrich     -   19th Century


"Beginner's Motion"

I didn't learn how to swim until I was 33 years old.

My son, the subject of this painting, learned when he was 12.

Hopefully he'll have his kids in the pool when they are 3 or 4 years old.....


This is a 30 x 40" commission I completed for a family from Canada.

It’s one of my favorite paintings and I wish that I could keep it!
