Autumn Color

I am looking up into the trees on this nice autumn day. The sun is shining through the leaves showing more colors than the eye can imagine. Soon the leaves will be gone and bare limbs and trunks will show clearly. Winter is next. Ink and watercolor.

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.

Colorful Finch

This is a colorful little Cassin Finch. Entire families of finches seem to be all over the place only occasionally chased away by ornery Scrub Jays and Robins. The bird's beautiful colors prompted me to paint him. Ink and watercolor.

Church Courtyard

This painting was started many years ago but I finally decided to finish it. This structure was in a desert area but I cannot remember the location. I used pen and ink, color dyes and watercolors. I like the detail in the architecture along with the desert colors and hints of green from the plant growth.

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.

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
