These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art.

Title or Location: Under the Sea
Interesting enough, this picture of a Sea Turtle was given to me about 5 years ago, from my good friend, while I was living in Colorado. She had taken the photo of a sea turtle while she had been on vacation in Belize. It was just a sea turtle, and I just filled in the rest. Funny, I had tried many, many times to do this picture before, and I could never get it right. I also have many other paintings, as well as Charcoal paintings too

Title or Location: New Mexico Eclipse
This piece was created on an antique ledger logbook page. Using Prisma colored pencils and Micron pen. The piece measures 12 1/4 ? 16 1/2 inches. I found inspiration for this piece through the wildlife of New Mexico. The roadrunner being the state bird and a neighbor to many that live in New Mexico. For those that do not have the pleasure to live here may not see the bird comfortable in its own environment. I very much admire the roadrunner for being a survivor of the desert able to a

This oil is 20x24 on stretched canvas. I employed several photos to create this art. I love to bring out the colors of the evening or sunrise. The glorious shades of light caught at a glimpse of the moment brings magic to the creation! Here is a young buck investigating the cove for safety before he brings the herd in for the night. His predecessor had just been shot and he now reigns over the herd. He is a young buck ready to prove he can protect the gift of leadership. It is a blessi

I painted this recently from a photo I took during a Friends Weekend several years ago. We stopped our bicycles on the bridge and snapped a few photos. The icy cold water was a brilliant blue from the mineral content. The Pine River flows into Vallecito Lake near Bayfield and Durango.

Title or Location: The Crow and the Moon Pool
In this piece, a solitary crow perches elegantly on the edge of a moonlit pool, its feathers glistening with an ethereal sheen. The scene is set within the hauntingly beautiful ruins of an ancient courtyard, where ivy-clad arches and weathered stone walls whisper tales of forgotten times. The moon, full and luminous, casts a silvery glow across the serene water, creating an almost magical reflection that seems to merge the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Flickering torches line the passa

Title or Location: Time Flys
20x24 mixed media on canvasI knew for two weeks before hand that I wanted to try a cityscape with a crow in it while utilizing texture paste and acrylic ink, to add to my new decor. I was experiencing sadness of loss one day and just had to paint. My mood is definitely reflected in this despite my original intentions. I added the old pocket watch in the crows mouth for the illustration of the stolen time.
