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.

Downtown Lincoln

Our downtown area in Lincoln, California, has many old structures that have been in existence for a long time. But this building does not look too old, looks updated and is very attractive. This was sketched on a bright sunny day on site and completed at home. I added some vehicles for interest and made all tree leaves very green which adds some pop. 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.

A Bird And Traffic Light


My painting shows an everyday traffic light that we all take for granted. I drew the image with brush and waterproof ink then scanned into my computer. With Photoshop I then added the color elements. The bird was added for interest. It’s like the bird was checking to see if it would have a home for the evening. Ink and Photoshop color.

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.
