SOLD - January's Texture - It's unusual to see something and know immediately that you have the interest and the willingness to paint what you have just encountered. I have been able to do several compositions of this scene and found that each one has offered me the same gratification as when I first came upon it.

SOLD - Mora Fields - On a trip to New Mexico I found this field in the town of Mora between Taos and Las Vegas. The amazing patterns os snow and field were an immediate attraction for me. I enjoyed the balancing between abstract pattern and a sense of realism. This became my main reason for coming back to this scene and finding it desirable to paint.

Through the Night - I have witnessed this many times having lived in the desert all of my life. There is a grace that falls on to what is usually a harsh, abrupt environment. The stable resistant growth watches the temporal quality of a night's sky move through and out of it's view.
SOLD This painting was from a trip to the Arizona Utah border.

SOLD - Earl Grey - This painting allowed me to explore the beautiful colors that were contained in this black tea kettle, color is in everything. I like the contrasting strength of the iron kettle against the soft and transparent paper that structures the tea bag.
