Boat Study #1

Boat Study #1 – 11″ x 14″ Pencil on premium paper

This boat is out for an afternoon cruise. Cutting through the water, parting the waves and turning the whitecaps. The water was fun to illustrate the swells and lows, and preserve the white of the cutting wake. I can’t wait until I can get out on the water again and catch the wind.


Colorado River (*)

*This is the final work for Colorado River. This picture was taken on a river expedition through the Grand Canyon by my brother. This has been a fun piece to create with the vast array of colors and textures. I hope you enjoy as much as I have in bringing it to you.

Fence Line

Fence Line – 6″ x 9″ Watercolor on 90lb acid free paper

Here is a favorite. This painting had several challenges associated with the tree in the background. and the bluring of the branches.

The following is a poem written for this painting by a dear friend. She writes:

Standing in the past,
Alongside a life of old,
Crumbling into rust and splinters.
Searching the horizon,
Waiting for something better.
