The lush surroundings seem to inspire his

Art Show Friends

Posted by Picasa4" x 6" Oil - Sold
This painting is of a few of my artist friends
attending a show. It was fun to try to capture
their looks without trying to paint portraits. I
was gratified that some recognized themselves!
I was even more pleased with the effects I was
able to get for all the paintings in such a small size.
Someone commented "Oh that's the teacup show"
and they were right!

The Old Sled

Posted by Picasa4" x 6" Oil SOLD
This nostalgic scene was set out
on the porch of a neighbor. The
sled was so familiar a shape to me
that I didn't realize at first that it
is now an antique.

right touch!

This is a view I have very near my home. I was
entranced with the violet color in the water.

Monterey View

Posted by Picasa 5" x 7" Oil - SOLD
Extraordinary rock formations with the swirling
waters of the Pacific to underscore their
dramatic stances.

The Masque

Posted by Picasa 5" x 7" Oil - sold
This is my very first small painting on a panel.
It was a great pleasure to do it as the mask had
been an unexpected gift from one of my students.
I was able to utilize touches of gold oil paint - not
something I can use very often!
