    I saw this photo in a Calendar and knew I had to paint it!  After receiving permission from the photographer I decided to use acrylic as I could control the soft scrubbing and blending of the rock colors. I like the cool beauty of the rocks as well as the balance of the bold red cactus and the sun-bleached branch.

    Welcoming Table

    You did it! artistically captured !

    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.
