California Mission-Santa Ines

This mission is located in southern California by Solvang which is near Santa Barbara. An earthquake in 1812 destroyed most of this structure but it was reconstructed and still is standing tall today. The structure is number 19 of the 21 missions in the state. It remains an active parish and has a museum, gift shop and information center. The old missions are fun to visit. Ink and watercolor.

Beautiful Mt. Rushmore

 Everyone should visit this national park. On a family vacation years ago, we stopped to visit. For tourists, there is a large area to view these tremendous rock sculptures of four American presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Ted Roosevelt and Lincoln). It’s difficult to understand how something like this was done--the sculptured faces are 60’ tall, carved on the side of a mountain, and the likeness of the individuals is remarkable. Visit this national park in South Dakota if you ever have the opportunity. In the meantime, enjoy my ink and watercolor painting which is available for purchase. SOLD

Klondyke Store Revisited

I repainted this little old structure located in the town of Klondyke, Arizona. My first painting (done in 2009) was very popular. I misplaced my digital files and I could not make prints. So this is the 2014 version done from old photos and drawings. According to a friend, this old store is no longer standing. This painting will allow it continue to live and not be just a memory. Has anyone been to the town of Klondyke lately? If you have, let me know. I would like to know if any of this little store even exists anymore. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
