River Boats in Venezuala. Like driftwood the random patterns the boats form are really fascinating. The color of the boats are tropical like the region and the dark intense color of the pinks and blues are great colors.

Slowly but surely I am catching up. This is a sunset scene from the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The sky is very colorful contrasted with the deepening blue of the water. A time that facinates me as a painter and as a viewer of the way Creation unveils something new and unique every day.

On the oregon coast. Quick sketch of the surf.

Towards Evening. This was painted as the sun was lowering on the fields.

Not the best Photo of this but my patience with my digital camera is wearing thin. It is a larger piece which was a sun and cloud day in the Napa Valley. I love the perspective of this piece. Thanks to my perspective teacher Ted Younkin.


A Quick study of mostly the light side. Seagulls are the crows of the coast. Crafty funny and resourceful. This is a small 6x6 piece.
Fall walk with my daughter. The low light and color are truly one of my favorites. In the Northwest the greens and reds of this time of year are really a treat.
Sorry I have not been very diligent about the site. I am going to try in the new year to post stuff more regularly as well as more recent work. This small 6x6 sketch is of a musician in a street fair. I loved the geometry of the costome and the simple shapes in the folds and her head covering.
