Interests and Personality

BiographyI Have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. Eventually it became like a lifeline for me. I paint mostly in watermedia, but I will also grab whatever I think will work best for what I am creating. I have been experimenting for the last year and a half or so with collage, different painting surfaces, a little of everything...way too much to name! I don't want alot of rules right now, I painted realism for so long that I just want to break away from rules!
InterestsPaint, papers, clay, metal, and just about anything else I can get my hands on to try out!
MusicAll kinds, but I really love some of the rock classics, good jazz, contemporary christian music and anything unusual, I just got a IPOD for Christmas...I'm loving it!
Films"Braveheart" is my all time favorite, but I also loved "The Last Samurai" and "Blood Diamonds"
TelevisionCrime dramas when I actually get the time to watch TV. CSI, Criminal Minds, ect...
BooksI love to read, it is hard to find the time though!
HeroesEveryday heroes, who are not looking for recognition.

Hello Beautiful work of art, your skill is wonderful, I really like your paintings and photographs, best wishes - ranjan


Hello FFforart, "Fields Of Gold" is a beautiful painting.Lenke


Thank you very much...it's funny, I had the cabbage in a competition and it received an honorable mention, but the judge told me that if I had done it in an off the wall color I would have won an award! Like red maybe? LOL


"Winter Cabbage" is a great work! At first, I thought that it's a rose :) Also, I really enjoyed looking through your "Italy Photos" gallery. Thanks for sharing. Marina


I like your your bird-paintings and photos. Especially I like "Autum leaves". Springsmiles from Mikala lykke

I also love large exotic birds but have to admit the many varietes of hummingbirds are my favourites, I took almost as many rolls of film trying to capture one at my cousins feeder in San Antonio, ended up doing sketches instead! Blumoon


Occasionally I stop for lunch in Lakeland on my way to Tampa. My wife and I have lived in Central FL for 36 years, now. Wishing you the best, Robbie

Hi, lovely paintings The Solitary Fisher reminds me of many years ago,early mornings watching for the heron from my bedroom window. Blumoon


Your "Winter Cabbage" demonstrates that nothing is prosaic when treated by an artist. Very good work, Robbie

Yes, and I don't consider these years wasted... My kids are still small and it hard to make art full time but how rewarding it is! Take care!


what a beautiful garden you must have!
