8″ x 10″ Oil, $175

The reflection on water fascinates me.

It mesmerizes me much like the tide.

9″ x 12″ Oil, $200

Inspired by a photo taken by Grant Ferguson in Montana,

this painting came together thoughtfully, stroke by stroke.

I’m pleased with the abstract/representational tension,

as well as the feeling of mist.

This could be anywhere, so I titled it, “Somewhere.”

Solitude 2

9″ x 12″ x 1.5″ Oil,  $200

With painted edges this one is ready to hang as is.

The subject of a solitary person looking out over the sea

is a favorite of mine.

I long to be there especially on this day of 114 degree heat

in the Valley of the Sun.

Painting the cooling colors of the sea and the shadows on land

transport me to an ever-enthralling place.

Beach Day


20″ x 24″, Oil, $800


Painting 34 of CHALLENGE 56


Countless layers of paint make up this scene, as did

countless compositions.

Four days of painting, scraping, paper-towelling,

lightly adding layers, and ever so slightly tweaking,

and finally I think I found the stopping point.

I wanted to show the reflection of the sky on the wet sand,

as well as the grasses on the border of the beach.

And I wanted to achieve some abstraction

while developing a softer beach scene.

Lastly, I worked for color harmony.
