    Description

    I love moody scenes and the atmosphere in this winter painting adds mystery and possibly a sense of danger or exhilaration for the skier as he is dwarfed by the Alpine mountains and trees. I don't normally add people or man made objects to my landscapes, but in this case I felt it added dimension.

    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.
