Morning Waters

On a hot summer morning, the sun's rays begin warming the day. The stream, trees and rocks all come alive. Birds begin to chirp. Temperature is rising. It will be a hot day and all creatures will look forward to the cooler night time. Ink and watercolor.

Healthy looking trees grow amongst the rocks on a slope in hill country. Slant of the trees show that the area gets some good winds which cause them to lean. Ink and watercolor.

Sunrise And Oceans

The sun will soon appear above the distant mountains. Its colors are already reflected on the still water which seems to be at low tide since I see so many rocks. Looks like it's gonna be a glorious day. Watercolor.

A Little Waterfall

A cold stream of water rushes over the cliff and comes crashing down to the rocks below. The beauty of the rocks adds nice color to the landscape. The sense of solitude is immense and is something only this artist may feel. Enjoy my painting. Ink and watercolor.

Hills, Trees And Rocks

Rocks and wild grasses fill in the empty spaces for these trees that have grown on these rolling hills. It's interesting why so many small rocks would be on these hills. This painting displays an interesting palette of browns, grays and greens. Ink and watercolor.

A Soaked Log

Crashing waves, a soaked log and cloudy skies highlight this ocean scene done very simply. In the midst of winter, this scene does not seem very appealing--but it will be in about six months from now when the cooling ocean sprays will keep our bodies comfortable during the heat of summer. Watercolor.

Desert Fence

Vivid colors show a desert just after a rainstorm. A broken fence litters the shrubs and rocks giving us a reminder there once was some live stock housed in the area. I used bolder ink lines in this painting but I think now--too bold. Ink and watercolor.

Summer Beach Shadows

A simple little summer scene shows palm trees, beach, rocks and ocean somewhere in Hawaii. The tree trunks are very interesting because they all seem to sway and lean to their own liking making a nice pattern to peer through to the ocean. The palm branches also have their own wild patterns.

This art fits an 8" x 10" frame and will take up very little space in some body's home. I try to do smaller size paintings like this one because everybody does not have room for large paintings to be hung in their homes. Watercolor.

Merced River, Yosemite

My painting of Yosemite was inspired by a beautiful photograph shown in the August 2008 issue of Sunset magazine. The photograph immediately caught my eye as I am a lover of the Yosemite landscape. The trick to making this painting real I believe was to make sure I got depth in the river, shown by the fuzziness of the underwater rocks and the shadows of the rafts. Also, I deemphasized the background mountain by mainly using subdued grays. In summer, this river offers a quiet, relaxing route through Yosemite. In winter, it becomes filled with lots of water flowing very fast which makes it treacherous and totally opposite of what you see in this painting. 16" x 20", ink and watercolor.
