    This painting is a portrait of a western hemlock. Its entangled boughs reach out and bow to the river below. The river separates the hemlock from our tree farm in western Washington.

    The river and forest conditions continually shape and reshape the riverbank. This hemlock, with its distinctive branches, always stands out, and when the evening light illuminates the boughs, it looks spectacular.

    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.
