Prayer For The Lost Ruins

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x36" I had a beautiful ranch once, and beautiful dreams of what could be possible. There were old ruins under big, ancient cottonwood trees with sweeping vistas in all directions. This land captured my heart, as did the man with whom I bought it. But life had other plans, and I [...]

Desert Water Bearer

Aqua oil on canvas, 30"x40" This image was in the dream of a friend of mine when he came to visit me from Maine. He told me of the dream, and said he thought it represented my life in the desert at the time. So I painted the urn with the water overflowing out of [...]

Ghost Dancers Dream

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" I went with a girlfriend in summertime to camp on the land beneath Pedernal near Abiqiu. It was incredible. We slept out in the open under the stars, and had a small fire going when we went to sleep. I had a ghost dancers dream where the ghosts surrounded me. [...]

After The Snow

Acrylic on canvas, 18"x36" New Mexico is beautiful after the snow falls, especially if the sun comes out and turns it all into a glistening paradise. I do not like the cold much, but I never minded the cold in the high desert. It can be really cold, but it just is not that bone [...]

Aspen Vista

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" Come late September in New Mexico, the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains above Santa Fe begin to light up with the autumn shades of gold, yellow and orange. Everyone flocks to the fire on the mountain to hike in the colorful aspen trees, and to catch a glimpse of the [...]

End of Cataract Canyon

Aqua oil on canvas, 18"x36" I did a river trip down Cataract Canyon in 2005. It was one of the most thrilling adventures ever in some seriously big water. You spend days hemmed in by the huge canyon walls. At the end of Cataract Canyon, the river opens into a wide expanse with beautiful surrounding [...]

Rain Offering

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x60" I lived on a beautiful ranch once south of Santa Fe in New Mexico. This was the view from my art studio there. It was one of those extremely dry summers when the monsoons came with nothing but a tease of rain. We were all waiting for the clouds to [...]

Doors To The Past

Acrylic on paper, 9"x12" If you ever visit the magical state of New Mexico, be sure to visit Chaco Canyon. It is located at the end of a twenty mile long dirt road, situated beneath a giant mesa with incredible views in every direction. There is a great visitor center as you enter the park [...]

Road To The Ranch

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I did this landscape painting of the road to the ranch long before I ever lived in the Southwest. I used to make trips out there almost every years to visit friends. On one of those trips I got a clear sense that  some day I would live there. It took [...]

Il Vicino Window

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" One of my favorite Italian spots to eat in Santa Fe was Il Vicino. It wasn't fancy, just a simple place to get good wood fired pizza and decent vino. I had a nice view one evening looking out an Il Vicino window while having dinner. I sketched it to memory, [...]
