    This painting was inspired by Debussy's "Rondes de Printemps" and recently hung in our "Beyond the Surface" exhibition at Orchestra Hall (MN).  As one person said of this painting, "The backdrop of somber greens and golds provides an accompaniment to the dancing vibrant scarlet of the sumac.Like the melody meandering through the instruments in "Rondes de Printemps" (Round Dances of Spring), the visual path of Rondes de L’Autumn (Round Dances of Autumn) travels throughout the subject matter along a cohesive path for the eye."

    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.
