Cactus Tree

A very wild cactus tree displays beautiful colors in this desert scene. We are used to seeing normal cactus plants but not cactus in tree form. I enhanced my painting by adding more color along with a greater variety of greens. Ink and watercolor.

Mission Carmel

Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, more commonly known as Mission Carmel, is the second mission in the family of California missions. Located near Highway 1 near the city of Carmel in California, this colorful mission was established in 1770. Mission Carmel has been designated a National Historic Monument. It is also an active parish church. Masses are held daily. Prepared in watercolor with some ink lines.

Grain Elevator Country

A lonely grain elevator appears at a roadside in a wide open countryside. This scene is typical in the USA and Canada where you can drive for miles and miles and soon you will come across a grain elevator. Somewhere near this structure will be some homes and maybe a little town. There are people somewhere nearby. Ink and watercolor.

The Dream

I created this small painting based on Edvard Munch's painting titled "The Scream" which sold for over $119 million on May 2, 2012. I feel very qualified to do a painting like his because it fits in with the whacked-out dreams that I have had for many years--apparently a lot like his dreams.

In my dreams, something scary is always chasing me, the sky is usually red and my legs do not work so I cannot run away. In real life, my wife hears me wimper, wakes me up and tells me to go back to sleep.

Please do not confuse this painting with the real one. Ink and watercolor with some color pencils.
