Southwest Enchantment Collection

My Southwest Enchantment Collection was inspired by sixteen years living in the high desert of New Mexico. They call this state the land of enchantment for good reason. It is hard not to be enchanted by magical light, adobe colors, blooming deserts, snow-covered mountains, canyon rivers, deep forests, Anasazi ruins, endless vistas and vibrant sunsets. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Joshua Tree

Aqua oil on canvas, 30"x40" I flew to California with a friend once to accompany him back to New Mexico with a car he bought there. We had quite an adventure. We detoured into Joshua Tree National Park where I fell in love with the Joshua tree. I have a son named Joshua. We then [...]

Summer Storm

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I went to visit an artist once who wanted to show some paintings in my gallery. She said they were too big to bring in her car, and if I would come out to see them, she would make me lunch. I was always ready for an adventure. When I turned [...]

Anasazi Echoes

Acrylic on canvas, 24"x36" Chaco Canyon is the most amazing Anasazi ruin in northwest New Mexico. This centralized pueblo was the thriving hub for thousands of Anasazis between 850 to 1250 A.D. The grand architecture of this pueblo, the complexity of the social and community life and extensive commerce exceeds anything ever seen before in [...]

Desert Mermaid

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x60" In the high desert of New Mexico, the summer monsoons usually arrive in late July, but sometimes they come earlier which is a good sign. And sometimes the monsoons just spit some rain, and never cut loose. Those make for hard, dry summers. One hot day I was out walking [...]

Blue Tears

Acrylic on canvas, 32"x32" I am born of Earth, yet in this moment the ground feels foreign. I smell the sage vaporizing from the high desert floor. I feel the sun penetrating my heart. Crows call to me from above. My reflection mirrors my grief as I taste the salty tears on my lips. I [...]
