    Description

    Robin Hood's Bay, Yorkshire on the east coast of England. While visiting the location at low tide I was attracted to this scene (one of many). The water trapped by the outgoing tide resulted in ready-to-paint subjects. The design was purely natural with virtually no editing required.

    Summer Vacation

    This painting shows patience, mastery with medium and a beautiful way of looking at the world and extracting what touches us about it. so good.

    nice idea and great use of muted color. I like the fact that the mud or foreground sand & water have been made more important( via detail) than the buildings. Great painting !

    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.
