A Secret Place-16"x24" Oil on Canvas


In this painting the composition was real but the colours and rock shapes I've played with. As the space fades in the upper left corner I imagined a few leaves casting a gentle shadow onto the rocks below. The secret place is actually in my mind.

Tree Line 6"x9" Medium Coffee on Watercolor Board


This is one of a few coffee paintings that I have done. I'm exploring with different brands of coffee. One of the benefits of painting with coffee is the delightful smell. Of course you would have to buy one to experience that.

"Rivers" Studio Study 36"x36" Acrylic on Canvas


On Feb 5th 2010, I was asked to do a live paint for a Help Haiti Fund Relief.
