This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.

"Violin Romance"

Jennifer DeForest taught violin at Belvoir Terrace where I was teaching painting in 1994. I painted this portrait of her. Years later after playing for the Salt Lake City Orchestra, she married and had 2 children. Somehow her husband tracked me down. I made a digital print on canvas and added 2 children sitting on the rim of the vase. This original version is available as a canvas print.
