Painter in central Illinois.
One I liked from when we went to the Atlantic. Available. Other beach posts from the trip coming soon. 5 X 7” oil on panel. Loved bringing my new easel from @allaprimapochade to the beach for the first time. Highly recommended.  #thekidsweresleepingafterthebeachsothegrownupssatonthebalcony  #pleinairpainting  #myrtlebeach  #summer  #vacation  #balcony  #beach  #atlanticocean  #waves  #umbrella .

Detail of a new painting, day two. Swipe for  #timelapse of today’s layers. This calendar has been in my studio since 1976 when my great-grandfather died. I never met him, but my great-grandmother was kind enough to grant me access to his wood shop after my MFA. 12 years later, and I’m finally getting around to painting this  #artifact in its proper environment The scrawled text seemed to fit the nature of calendars in general, but also the relationship of what he made and I what I’ve made on this site. If you’ve read this far, there are changes coming. I’ll have updates along the way.  #memories  #goingsomewhere  #doneisanillusion  #gray  #wip  #beginning  #stilllifeisthrilllife

Each painting is 8 X 10 inches on cradled panels. They make a great pair.   #birdsofinstagram  #bird  #swainsonsthrush  #artistsoninstagram  #mbencohanstudio  #oilpainting  #painting  #studio  #illinois  #oilonpanel  #fineart  #contemporaryart  #artcollector  #artforsale  #iilinoisartist
