Sweetland Fine Art 
I have always loved art. My search of a way to express the art I see in my mind's eye has taken the better part of 40 years to come to fruition. When I was 11, I took my first oil painting classes at a local art supply store. Without my knowing it, one of my paintings was submitted to the school district art competition where it took third place. Then, as happens with many, my life went in another direction. For thirty years I worked in the information technology field. During those years, I attended a variety of drawing and painting classes through local community colleges and university extension programs continuously feeding the artistic part of me. Now as a full time professional artist, I draw and paint a variety of subjects using the medium...

Still Life Most of my still life paintings are compositions that I set up on my kitchen counter. I love the reflections that I get from the items sitting on the black granite
Landscape These landscape paintings are done in my studio working from my own photos. I prefer painting landscapes that show the beauty of nature untouched by man.
Plein Air Plein air paintings, both landscape and still life, are paintings that are done outside under natural light. The challenge of plein air painting is that the light and shadows on your subject are continually shifting with the passing of the sun requiring you to paint quickly and capture the impression of your subject rather than a detailed study like that which could be created in the studio.
Truck Series These 1935 (approximate) International Harvesters are parked along highway 41 between Atascadero and Moro Bay, California. After painting "The Old Gentlemen's Club" I decided to paint portraits of the members of the club. The members' names are names that were popular for men in 1935.
Walk This Way This is a series of seven oil paintings of roosters. Each rooster has an etiquette lesson chosen for it based on the posturing of the rooster.
Sunflowers There is just something about sunflowers that seems to talk to us.


San Luis Rey Bench
I recently joined Rich Stergulz and his painting class at the San Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside for a few hours of en plein air painting. I loved the way the arch and shadow framed the sunlit bench.
