Port Aransas Alley

This painting was inspired by a sepia photo taken years ago in Port Aransas, Texas. I was attracted to the shadows, background and bicycles.

Jade In Repose

My girl Jade loved sleeping on my couch like this. She could peek at me if she wanted and be ready for action if need be.

Cypress Branches

Cypress trees remind me of whimsy. The branches and leaves are delicate. This spot on Red Bud Isles has great water reflections and shadows too.

Pasture Family

On my last visit to Commerce I took the time to take some photos of the farmland between Commerce and Neylandville, Texas. The animals were out as were the wildflowers. Unlike a lot of artists, I love using green especially in the landscape. My mom always told me that if you see the cows sitting down, rain is coming. Its funny how I have retained so many of her musings.

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.
