Mt. Hood, Oregon

Mt. Hood is located approximately 50 miles southeast of Portland, Oregon. It is over 11,000 feet in elevation and is the highest point in the state. Oregon has a string of beautiful mountains which run north and south through the middle. While in the city of Portland, one cannot miss this huge mountain while looking eastward. Ink and watercolor.

Angels Landing-Zion

Angels Landing is a 1,488 ft tall rock formation in Zion National Park in southern Utah. The Angels Landing Trail is one of the most famous hikes in the national park system. Zion's pride and joy runs along a narrow rock fin with steep drop-offs on both sides. The  trail culminates at a lofty perch, with great views in every direction. Climbers scale its walls; hikers pull themselves up by chains and sightseers stand in awe. The towering monolith is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Southwest. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Mt. Rushmore USA

This National Park is located in the state of South Dakota. It was a 14 year project completed in 1941 and it features former Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln. The sculpture on the side of a huge cliff was a major task. Each face is about 60 ft tall and mouths about 18 ft wide and the replication of the faces are very exact and real. When you see this monument in person it is fantastic. Ink and watercolor

Lighthouse in Maine

This brightly painted lighthouse is located in the state of Maine, USA. This is the West Quaddy Head Light in Lubec. It stands high above the ocean and on this bright, sunny day can be seen by everyone. This painting was done quickly and loosely and is a pleasant reprieve from some of my tight, detailed work. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

New Mexico Back Country

My country landscape painting is an impression of what I consider to be typical in the state of New Mexico in the USA. You see lots of wide open country with long stretches of lonely highways, shrubs, trees and even hefty mountain ranges. If it’s open territory you like, New Mexico has it. Ink and watercolor.

My Favorite Passenger Car

When I was young, I loved the last car of passenger trains. I dreamed I could ride in the comfy seat of this last car and watch the rails disappear in the distance. I still love these cars and wish they were still on every Amtrak passenger train. Ink and watercolor.

Park Bridges

These bridges exist in the middle of a huge city in the USA. They can be found in New York City’s Central Park. Many of you may have walked over these sturdy looking structures. Ink and watercolor.

Southwest USA

This ink and watercolor sketch displays a sprawling vista of desert, river and mountains in the southwest section of the USA. This could be a scene from the states of Arizona, New Mexico or maybe Utah. You decide. Maybe you have been here.

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

Cactus In The Sunshine

A prickly cactus thrusts upward sprouting new buds in this bright sunshine scene. The cactus plant is fun to draw and easy to replicate even if the drawing is not too exact. Get the colors right and exaggerate the prickly thorns and you have a beautiful warm-weather plant. Ink and watercolor.

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.

Old Santa Fe Station

An old passenger train leaves a small Santa Fe station in the late afternoon. This image was during a time when railroad travel was big. The train is just departing the old station in a quiet town somewhere in the southwest USA. A few people remain as they watch their friends scoot away to their destinations. The guy in the sombrero is sitting there just because he likes to see trains come and go. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Beautiful Swamp

Colorful swamps in the southeast USA offer a maze of trees and murky waters to enjoy. The trees are OK but the critter-infested waters are a little iffy. During the day this swamp is beautiful. I do not think I would like to be here at night. Ink and watercolor.

Pueblo Sketch

This sketchy little pueblo scene could be from somewhere in the southwest USA or Mexico. Actually, I took bits and pieces from photos to produce this small painting. I like the colors, the looseness and simplicity. Life looks very simple here. Ink and watercolor.

City Of Loose Lines

My colorful city scene was done with very loose line work--I mean I intentionally did it to make this image very loose and free. This scene was produced looking at several city scenes. The buildings are way more colorful than actual city buildings and I added more trees for greenery. The windows of the buildings were done in different styles and very loosely as well. Simple sky and clouds were added last. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Love My Flag

I have always liked the look of our country's flag. It's very noticeable, bright and symbolic. I produced this artwork because and I like flags--our flag for sure. Unless it's raining or foggy, I fly mine every day and make sure I take it down at night. My home has a nice flag staff holder which makes it is very easy to put up and take down. Surprisingly, only about 20% of the homes in our community display the flag each day. However, on special days like the Fourth of July and Memorial Day, most people show their stripes. I like mine being out whenever the weather is nice. I used watercolors, ink, shades of gray pens.

Middle America

This is an ink and watercolor of idle people at the tracks in a small town somewhere in the middle of the USA. Maybe there is not much to do in the middle of winter in a small town on a dark, cold day. But these locals have decided to spend their time chatting at the tracks. 16" x 20"
