The trees along any beach area are always whipped by the wind. This cluster of palms along a tropical beach somewhere in the Caribbean show how the branches are thrown around and are at the mercy of the winds. Each branch is whipped around which makes the palm trees look alive as if they are dancing. This pen and ink/watercolor painting done in 2005 is my entry for Illustration Friday's theme of "Wind". SOLD

This painting was done on a warm sunny day at the end of September at a scenic pumpkin farm. I hope you enjoy this painting as we head deeper into the fall season. This was done on a 11" x 15" Strathmore, cold press, 140# watercolor sheet. I like this work. The back pumpkin is lame and some of the leaves are not defined enough. I need to work on accuracy in my shadow work. I would like some critiques of this art from all of you who view this. I will make note cards which will look great because image will be much smaller. The original painting looks great matted and framed.

The Teton mountains are a part of the great Rocky Mountains which disect the United States through the states of Montana, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico. From afar, the Tetons are a spectacular view. This painting portrays one of many little meadows nestled in the foothills heading into these mountains. Quiet and green, this meadow typifies the solitude found in these countrysides. This painting was done as the sun was setting at day's end.

These salt and pepper shakers belonged to my parents. They received these as a gift when they were married. For some reason, I remember them vividly as I was growing up and I always thought they were sooooo cool. These were handed down to me and my family and I decided to paint them. So one day, I bought some green onions and radishes and put together a still life. I am pleased with the way the painting turned out. Painted on 9"x12", 140# Strathmore watercolor paper. SOLD

No matter what the terrain is like, people will always find a way to build near the water as shown in this painting. This little community is probably home to many who make a living by being near the water. This pen and ink/watercolor was done on 9" x 12", 140# Strathmore watercolor paper using Sharpie, Nexus and Pilot pens. SOLD
