Abstract Containers


This still life painting was done last year when I was “into” still life paintings. This art is semi-abstract, no lines are super straight and background containers appear thru foreground containers. The use of a variety of colors also help give bottles their shapes. Ink and watercolor.

Country Antiques


In most rural areas of the USA, one can usually find discarded and abandoned vehicles. Some of these old treasures are ripped off for their parts and any other useable items. This old pickup no longer has its bed and definitely shows the wrath of time. Automobiles and farm equipment can also be discovered. Ink and watercolor.

Creek Bed And Bridge


Imagine a summer day, mid-afternoon, very hot, no breeze, high creek waters are gone and only a trickle of water remains. This is what it is like where I live. It was actually comfortable where I was sitting when I painted this. Since we have had a very welcomed, rainy winter, I look forward to warmer weather ahead. Ink and watercolor.

Southwestern Architecture

This simple painting displays the upper half of a large structure that you may find in the southwest part of the United States. This could be an office building, hotel, someone’s mansion or part of a shopping mall. These buildings are designed for the elements like rain and wind in this part of the country. Most corners are rounded and rain spouts stick out from the building to eliminate water from rooftops. Colors match the territory and trees add a pop of green. Ink and watercolor

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

A Nice Tiger

My painting of this tiger turned out to have the look of a nice, friendly wild animal. Of course it is not chummy and nice but I decided that it looks nice—the reason for the title. Tigers are an endangered species. They are indigenous to some of the more populated places on the planet which cause conflicts with humans. BEWARE. Safer to see them in zoos. They are beautiful.                  Ink and watercolor.

San Francisco Side Street

The city of San Francisco has so many unique locations to draw. This painting shows a simple, hilly side street, multi-story buildings with afternoon shadows and an interesting view looking upward. I added more color to everything including the sky for more interest. I did most of my ink work first then added color since the overall image needed more punch. 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

Cornucopia

The cornucopia or horn of plenty is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, shown as a horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts. This symbol is normally seen around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays in North America. It remains a symbol of prosperity and good living to all. May your Cornucopia be full with all good things in 2017.

Mission San Miguel

Beautiful Mission San Miguel was founded more than 200 years ago in San Luis Obispo County eight miles north of Paso Robles, California.  A favorite mission for its country-like setting, the area has grown around the mission in the town of San Miguel located in the central coast of California.  Ink and watercolor.

Spectacular Courthouse




This beautiful courthouse is still being used in Auburn, California, and remains a very majestic historical monument. Travelers on I-80 East will see this building on the hill to the right as they pass by the town of Auburn. Built in 1894, this structure is still open to the public and is one of northern California’s popular landmarks for tourists. Ink and watercolor.

Sketch Crawl In Truckee


Truckee, California, is located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range 100 miles east of Sacramento and 12 miles north of Lake Tahoe. Highway I-80 runs through Truckee, as does Amtrak. In September I spent some time here sketching the downtown area. The weather was warm, tourist traffic was heavy and I found some quiet places to sit and draw. This scene is a section of downtown drawn from the corner of the Amtrak depot. Ink and watercolor.

Pumpkin Patch Season


Now is the time where most pumpkin patches are thriving. Now that Halloween is here and gone many of the patches are a shell of what they were a month ago. But most of the pumpkins found homes and were carved up and lit up to show their scary masks. Ink and watercolor.

Dr. Frankenstein's Creation



I have always enjoyed any of the Frankenstein movies that have been produced through the years. Love the black and white film, scary noises the music and rainy, dark nights. But most of all I like the extra large creation brewed up by the doctor. I don’t know if he even has a name but I call him Frankenstein which I think is good enough. Halloween time is the perfect time of year for this monster to appear out of the shadows. Ink and watercolor.

Little Shoes

When you have little ones staying at your home you might find cute little shoes laying around. There may have been socks with these shoes but they are no where to be found. These little shoes are placed neatly but that is because I organized them. We don't have little ones around our home much anymore but I do remember the days when organizing  little shoes was a daily chore. Ink and watercolor.

A Tropical Beach

Scenes like this remind me of what a perfect vacation spot would look like. With lots of sun we see fresh looking trees, beautiful tropical waters and green/brown hills as a background. A special bonus is that we notice there is no trash and no people. Complete solitude. Relax and enjoy this vacation scene. Ink and watercolor.

A Santorini Sketch

I am posting another one of my Greek Island sketches—again from Santorini. I have never been there before. I drew this from a photograph but this is one place I would like to visit.  As with all my sketches and paintings, I have added more color than you would see in the real structures. Ink and watercolor.
