He's So Cute

8 x 10

Last week another artist mentioned she had picked up the Carmel City Guide because the dog on the front cover was so cute. I had picked up the guide as well for the same reason! I painted He's So Cute yesterday when the storms rolled in and forced us all inside.

Clouds & Sea

12 x 12

I've been so distracted by clouds lately . . . when I'm driving. The last few days have provided spectacular cloud shows and it's impossible not to admire them. On days such as these, I need to walk rather than drive. I'll live longer.

This painting has beautiful clouds and the sea rather than the strip malls and highways anchoring our city sky.

Early Autumn

20 x 16


This is an interpretive landscape. I want to paint with more color, a little less realistic, but still something less than modern or abstract. I like this and plan to continue with this approach to see where it leads.

Triple Threat

16 x 20

We drove to Florida in April and passed through Birmingham, Alabama and other areas that were devastated by tornadoes shortly after our trip. Severe weather followed here as well keeping twisters in my mind.

Awesome Sunset

16 x 20

Another sunset inspired by photos I took over the Gulf of Mexico. Obviously, I took liberties with the color and design.

Winter Sunset

16 x 20

This is my first larger painting, which is still pretty small in the scheme of things. Painted from two photographs of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico.
