    Description

    'Moon Shadow', 30x18, oil on panel.  Plein air nocturnes are challenging.  Light is at a minimum and difficult to define once the sun goes down.  This lone cedar stands despite having fire damage to one side.  A lone standing sentinel against the elements.  I was reminded of  Frederick Remington's nocturnes.  He created worlds that described the night in bold graphic terms.  Shapes and silhouettes. Powerful figures in the moonlight.

    This single tree is indeed a powerful figure in the moon light. Well done.

    Detail in Big Strokes

    This painting shows amazing detail (color, texture) within such beautiful loose brushstrokes. I love it!

    A Flowery Village

    This fanciful, flower lined village reminds me of a visit to Epcot Center in Florida a few years ago.

    Mangrove Roots

    A view of colorful underwater roots ordinarily hidden from sight takes on an abstract quality and I feel the rhythm created by the repeating shapes, patterns, colors and textures.

    From a Memory

    Can't you remember driving down this road? The artist creates that strong sense of such a memory with washes, few strokes and low value colors in a landscape painting that relies on keen attention to perspective drawing.
