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.

Spring In Yosemite

Winter clouds linger but bright green grasses and foliage indicate its spring time in Yosemite. The river is running high and soon temperatures will rise and comfortable weather is coming. As summer nears, the tourists will appear at this beautiful National Park. Ink and watercolor.

Blue Mountains

This scene looks cold as winter appears to be near. The blue mountains are not covered with heavy snow yet. Snow has fallen already as shown in the foreground. River water looks cold and still. A snow storm could be here soon. Watercolor. SOLD

Cold Winter Sunset

This winter scene at sundown was painted in a workshop I took from David Lobenberg in December 2012. I feel the painting turned out well and it shows the cold of winter but also has enough color to make the painting more interesting. This painting is all watercolor except for the use of some conte crayon for the highlights. SOLD

Bright Spring Day

Colorful mountains and bright green leaves look extra bright as the sun comes out after a spring rainstorm. A few puffy clouds remain but there will be no rain on this colorful landscape for the rest of this day.

This painting was purchased by our friends, John and Jean Hanson who saw it in my office when we hosted a wine party in May. Thank you both!!! Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Dog Days Of Summer

Dog days of summer in my mind are the hot summer days that take place in late August and early September when we are all just plain tired of the blasted heat. Our thoughts are tending toward cooler autumn days and nights and even the images of cold winter days. It's all a vicious cycle because during the bad winters our thoughts turn to warm spring days. This image shows the threat of thunderstorms and lower river levels and attempts to denote a hot, muggy day. Ink
 and watercolor.

Snow River

A quiet little river meanders through snow covered land surrounded by trees. The slow moving river lends itself to a very quiet mood somewhere in the wilderness. Ink and watercolor.

Sheltered Waters

Let's warm things up a bit!!!! These two colored desert cliffs surround the pathway of a cool river spilling into the edges of a desert. The water is inviting as it nears its final destination after the long haul from the surrounding mountains.

Seems like once I get into the winter months I start thinking of warmer scenes. You may be the same way. Ink and watercolor.

Soothing Reflections

This cooling fall scene is a welcome site after the hot summer days slip past. My country view of a river bed, water, trees and shrubs is made interesting by the soothing reflections in the water. My basic image was sketched with ink. Trees and water area were dampened then I applied the watercolors. Image fits into 8" x 10" mat and took about 30 minutes to do because it was done so loosely. Hope you enjoy it. Ink and watercolor.

Steam Over The River

I re-created this painting from the book Banshee Train which was illustrated in watercolor by Ted Rose. I am a lover of trains and the manner in which Ted painted is an inspiration.

This painting reminds me of days past when I was a boy mesmerized by the beauty, strength and noise of huge trains that rumbled past. I still love all of that. This view is a steam engine with passenger cars somewhere in Colorado. Ink and watercolor, 18" x 22" framed. SOLD

An Anaconda Lurks

I read a news story the other day about large snakes in prehistoric times. Some were as large as 40-45 feet long and 2-3 times larger in diameter than today's largest. While the anaconda shown here is only 25-30 feet long, it's plenty big and appears to be locked in on an idle crocodile maybe in a river in a jungle. Now, I am not sure if these snakes will nab and eat a croc but if so, this croc better put it in REVERSE and head the other way. Ink and watercolor.

Cool River Valley

A beautiful valley and a clear, cool river running through it shows why it is so nice to get out of the city and see the countryside. My painting shows the variety you can see in settings like this--cool blue waters, colorful river banks, lush evergreen trees and in the background the dry, rolling hills dotted with trees. This combination was what drew me toward doing this painting. 7.5" x 7.5", ink and watercolor. SOLD
