A Bird And Traffic Light


My painting shows an everyday traffic light that we all take for granted. I drew the image with brush and waterproof ink then scanned into my computer. With Photoshop I then added the color elements. The bird was added for interest. It’s like the bird was checking to see if it would have a home for the evening. Ink and Photoshop color.

Rainbow Bridge Roseville

This bridge is located in Roseville, California, heading into the "Old Roseville" district. I used black India ink and brush to draw this subject then I used watercolors to complete it. Drawing and painting loosely is a great change from my normal tight and detailed images. It is very stimulating and makes me produce an image with fewer lines. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Not A Toy


Guns scare me! Many of my relatives were hunters so I was around guns, was taught to shoot them and learned to live with them. Only guns I have used recently is a pellet gun and a B-B gun. Actually what I like to do with guns is draw them which I have done with this little gem. It looks innocent but in the wrong hands it can be dangerous. So I will just continue to draw them—it’s safer that way. Ink and watercolor.

California Grape Vineyard


This painting shows a grape vineyard typical for California. Some are larger, some are smaller, some are neater, some are secluded. But there are many because of the weather conditions that allow perfect grapes to be grown. The drought is over and water is plentiful so I expect a huge supply of grapes this year. Some will be used to make wonderful wines at the many wine tasting facilities. Be careful you don’t taste too much!!!! Ink and watercolor.

November Morning





My painting depicts an early morning scene in a wooded area as the first rays of light appear. Mornings are now cool and the waters are very still beneath the trees. The scene is very quiet and the birds have not yet begun to chirp. A hint of rain from the previous night’s rain lingers. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Favorite Foot Ware

Many years ago when I did a lot of walking, I bought a great pair of walking shoes which looked like these in the painting. They lasted many years and it was difficult to throw them away even when the heels began to fall apart, shoelace loops tore and bits and pieces of heavy stitching began to fail. Many of you know how sad it is when you must end your relationship with a favorite pair of foot ware.

Sacramento Water Tower

This water tower is located on the southern rim of the city of Sacramento next to Interstate 5. I decided to paint this tower one day so here it is. Currently, the slogan reads “America’s Farm-To-Fork Capital”. For many years the slogan said “City Of Trees”. Many citizens are not happy with the change. Major discussions are taking place. Will they change it back? Who knows. Ink and watercolor.

Lilac Breasted Roller

 A member of the roller family of birds found in Africa. Prefers open woodland and savanna. It is largely absent from treeless places. It perches conspicuously at the tops of trees, poles or other high vantage points from where it can spot insects, lizards, scorpions, snails, small birds and rodents moving about at ground level. Cute but dangerous. Ink and watercolor.SOLD

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

Gated Residence

This is a residence you may find in an upscale Los Angeles area in California. Bold gated metal barrier keeps out passers-by, palm trees give shade and greenery to the front yard and the multi-story home looks solid with building blocks on the front fa├žade. Don’t look for lots of details or straight lines in this painting because you won’t find any. Colors on home added wet on wet for blending effect. Ink and watercolor.

Old Arizona Bridge

This old bridge is located north of Snowflake, Arizona. It’s way out in the country and farmers may still haul over it and herds of cows might meander over it still. The Little Colorado River flows beneath the bridge. My illustration was inspired from an illustration done by the late Earl Thollander whose art I totally admire. Ink and watercolor.

Mission Santa Barbara

This old mission is located in southern California near the city of Santa Barbara. Many of the California missions were destroyed by fire or earthquakes since originally being built. This one was damaged by earthquakes and rebuilt and fortified. It still serves the community as a parish church and remains a major attraction for the city of Santa Barbara. Ink and watercolor.

Sketchy Victorian


My sketchy Victorian painting was done this past January 2017. I needed an additional painting for a formal art show and this was it. This original was the first to sell. It’s very sketchy!  Everything is done loosely--no straight lines, lines don’t connect and broad strokes of color give this painting a happy look. Ink and watercolor. SOLD
