    It was a still day in late winter up north. The early March sunshine was still weak but the snow seemed to absorb the light once it was free from the shadows of the trees. I found a big old log that had toppled partially into the stream and cleared the snow that had draped its broad surface. This spot afforded me a momentary perch to relax and take in the view of the stream. The water was slowly awakening and chafing at the banks but couldn't quite dissolve the ice that crusted at the edges. It was so peaceful. So quiet. I just knew that I wanted to capture this moment of time to share with others.

    Latest Artists Choice Reviews

    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.
