    Excitement, wonderment; laughter and squeals of delight from children's play at the park brought me to capture this moment. Color, Light, and mood inspire me to be spontaneous, passionate, and colorful in my work!  Living on the Pacific north coast allows me to capture the vibrant greens and vivid color its noted for!  Its abundance of natural untouched surroundings gives me unlimited art possibilities for me to capture moments in life, nature, and genre.

    This is beautiful, the expression, composition, background, attention to values, contrast. it shows true dedication as an artist as well as talent and heart. so well done.


    One of my favorite works. I love the contrast between the lightness of the balloons and the heaviness of the body motion and the boy's gaze.


    The variety of lines, values, and colors keep the viewer coming back. It is also raises the question about the meaning of the flowers the woman is holding. We begin to imagine and want to know more of the story.

    Oh my God , what a lovely and beautiful portrait, Perfect and simpl , use of green colour looks stunning.

    Compositional Perfection

    Love this piece !. Great use of light, depth perception and color. The vertical composition is perfect for the story being told. I also love the way the artist has created the layers of rock from top to bottom leading into the action at hand at the bottom. This is a masterpiece.
