Meandering Shadows

This is a small color study for a larger painting. It is based upon a scene in northern California. I liked the way the shadows played with the light.

Collard Greens

This image was born while I was washing collard greens. I thought why not make an image of what I was looking at. I took a few photos and this is the first of a series of collard greens inspired paintings.

Family Conundrum

This piece is one that has many meanings for me. It is about family and symbolism. I initially posted this image to instagram. As you know, the application crops your image to a certain format. This is the full picture. The images are from Commerce.

Point Reyes Repose One

I have this thing about many things; one of which is cows. I love the animals of the Point Reyes National Seashore. These guys were hanging out just when the drought was breaking in Northern California a few years back. I have made reference to these guys because this is one of two paintings.
The second painting. Both are sold.

March West Austin Sunset

I love the fact that I can just open my door for inspiration. One day last month I noticed that the light outside was extra special. I opened the door and took a few photos. I worked on clay coated paper that I bought a few years ago from New York Central Art Supply.. I am just now learning how to used its unique texture.

Turkey Geese 1

Birds and people are similar subjects. Both move around and frustrate the hell out of your artistic ego. They both force you to use your memory muscle. These geese were hanging out at the Richmond marina in January of this year. Pam warned me not to get too close because they can be aggressive. I listened to her advice.
