Endless Landscapes

Few subject matters allow for an artist's exploration into shape, color and line than endless landscapes, while simultaneously providing the artist with a deep, intrinsic connection to the natural world. For many years, I was content to capture in landscape painting  the slow, continuous deepening of the summer fields into a sea of green, as [...]

Fall Splendor

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" When we behold the magnificent, colorful display of the turning leaves in fall, one has to consider the Creator is a true artist. How ironic that dying leaves exhibit such fall splendor. Perhaps nature shares the message of a beautiful mystery in change, in dying, that we can embrace without [...]

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 [...]

New Moon Fireflies

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" One of the most wonderful spectacles of  Appalachian summer evenings are the fireflies. This was a scene one summer night off my back porch when the fireflies came out by the thousands to light up the field. It was especially beautiful under the new moon, thus the painting was called [...]

Down The Hill

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" How can one not love autumn when all the trees turn such amazing colors? One crisp, fall day I went for a long walk on our Virginia farm. I was coming down the hill from the barn, and the trees lining the road were just on fire with oranges and red. [...]

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 View

Acrylic on canvas, 30"x40" I loved the late afternoons in New Mexico when the light would hit the mountains, and all kinds of shadows would come out to play in the summer view. All the colors of the flowering trees and perennials were a welcome addition to the stark browns and endless dark greens. Unframed. [...]

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 [...]
