The purpose of this website is to give those who are interested in my work an opportunity to see what I have done. I regularly update this site with new works.
I began my art career at age 50. I completed my first painting in November, 2007, and sold my first piece in March of 2009.
I like detail. I have been a modeler since I was 10, and modeling focuses on detail. Painting offers me an opportunity to experiment with detail, learn new techniques, learn about the art of others, and to learn more about the world around me. My medium is primarily oils.
My hope is to create work that makes people smile.
Jenny Honnert Abell has been a wonderful source of support and advice in helping me in my development as an artist.
My son, James Swearingen, created this site for me.
