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.

Barns And Trees 2

Simple farm yard scene #2. These old wooden structures have lasted through all kinds of weather and still store farm equipment, feed and miscellaneous items for the owners. This is a flip-flop version from my last post titled Barnes And Trees 1. Ink and watercolor.

Morning Trees


The sun's rays creep through the huge trees in this early morning forest scene. All is quiet except for the birds beginning to chirp and critters scurrying through the dense underbrush. 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.

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.
