    “My paintings explore the topography of the landscapes of the Picture Plane through colors of the Seasons, of sunrises and sunsets, dense forests or deep oceans, or fires across the plains and with the textures of dry riverbeds in desert arroyos, or canyons and mesas, craters and mountain ranges of imaginary landscapes on other worlds.”

    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.
