The great thing about being an artist is that your job is to go out and hunt for beautiful things and try to capture them in paint.

15×30″ oil on canvas– Not a bad perch for posting up an easel and watching the waves roll onto Garrapata State Beach in Big Sur… I’m curious who the lucky folks are whose homes are on the ledge and who call this place their back yard.
15×30″ Oil on Canvas Panel– Nothing has more beauty and mystery than a deep, fern-filled redwood grove with a playful stream meandering through. Places like this are medicine for the spirit– my breathing slows, my shoulders drop a few notches lower and I feel completely grounded and at peace here. My hope for the trees in these woods is that they all grow to be giants and that after they fall they are slowly and gently returned to rich soil by banana slugs and other beautiful decomposers.
12×36″ oil on canvas– As the sun rises the color of the light goes through every color in the spectrum, starting with pink, red, orange, yellow and finally the cool greens and blues of daylight. This is trying to catch that orange moment that passes so quickly.
20×48″ oil on canvas– The tides were nice and low Monday afternoon to walk from Haskel’s to Driftwoods Beach. The cirrus clouds in the sky were hinting at the rains on the way. I brought the sun out a little more in the painting because, well, grey isn’t my favorite color. This is more how it would look today with the sun out again and our creeks flowing happily…
Aloes in Bloom– 30×40″ oil on canvas– This was a fun commission for a couple on the Riviera who collect a whole variety of interesting aloes in their garden. The day I went to make watercolor sketches to work from, the clouds were playing hide and seek with the sun giving the whole view a magical feel.
