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

Title or Location: The Guardian
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: Sunset at Boukari Harbour, Corfu
I started painting 6 years ago after attending a paint night at a local bar (just for fun) in Vancouver, Canada, where I had been living. I was addicted! Youtube videos have been a great way to learn and grow. The journey has been frustrating at times but it has also become my stress relieving activity.I visited Corfu at the beginning of June and loved the sunsets at this location in the South East of the Island. When I look at skies, clouds , water etc I am always imagining how to paint them

Title or Location: He sees me.
This was a new experience. I knew I needed to be more efficient at creating. So I prayed and with all my art work being are a form of praise and worship, each time I sat to paint, time disappeared. Yet I finished it quicker than any other piece. Once this was done I asked myselfhow'd you do that? I didn't, He did!

Title or Location:
Part of an unreal series from the land of dead birds exploring human extinction. The Unreal series are inspired by the bleak landscapes of Western Australia. In this instance the Blackwood River in Nannup. A poet friend who doesn't want to be named sends me photos she thinks would form a perfect backdrop for the land of dead birds. The birds themselves are Frankenstein compositions all framed by Art Nouveau/Lovecraftian inspired frames. The land of deadbirds is part of a wider exploration of war
