    This is a pastel drawing of an approaching storm near the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado. I have always been drawn to the play of light across objects, how color responds to light, and how this relationship affects my mood. I believe nature provides excellent source material to explore this fascination and hope my work conveys emotion to the viewer.

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.

    Alberta in Fall

    Beautiful piece with great atmosphere!
