Mary Jane Volkmann's commissioned portrait of man and his dog on the beachWelcome to my online painting gallery Wherever I happen to be, I delight in painting the world around me, recording a few anecdotes and teaching workshops along the way. I paint portraits and landscapes “en plein air” or in the studio, using acrylics, oils and watercolors. These pages share some of my paintings as well as news and stories about workshops, exhibitions and some of the projects I have undertaken over the years in Africa, Europe, Florida and southeastern USA.  Enjoy your time here and feel free to contact me to inquire about a painting, commission or workshop ~ or simply to say hello!
