Breakfast Toucan

9"x 12", Acrylic on paper Colorful toucans are one of the gems to be found in Mexico. I stayed once at a friend's house in Playa del Carmen, back when it was still a village with dirt streets and only two restaurants. Every morning this same toucan would appear in the same tree at the [...]

Baja Art

  Water in the high desert of New Mexico where I live is a precious, non-abundant resource. It is for me a necessity to get to the ocean whenever possible to get my water fix. I have been heading south of the border in winter since 1997 when I first landed in Baja. I recall [...]

Blackbird Siesta

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x60" One afternoon I was taking a walk on the beach in Zihuatanejo, and passed a woman taking a siesta under a palm tree. There was a blackbird perched on her hip while she was sleeping. She was taking a blackbird siesta.   Original Painting Blackbird Siesta $3,780.00 Giclee Prints 10"x [...]

Souls Journey

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" My boys and I went deep sea fishing while we were in Zihuatanejo, Mexico in 1994. Our captain was named Miguel, and his fishing boat was name Isis. We left the dock just before sunrise, and shortly after, witnessed the most beautiful sun rise above the ocean. I do not [...]

Moon Mother

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" One night as I was walking back to my mountaintop palapa along the beach in Zihuatanejo, I felt something run across the top of my foot, then another. I looked down to see dozens of baby turtles zipping their way to the ocean waters. The full moon was just rising [...]

Initiation

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" I rented a mountaintop palapa one winter in Zihuatanejo, Mexico that overlooked the ocean. Some days there were hundreds of butterflies in the jungle around the palapa. I had never seen so many before in one spot. My favorite was the beautiful, blue butterfly. Sometimes I would stand on the [...]

Late Afternoon in Mexico

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I was sitting in the courtyard sketching one late afternoon, when this little Mexican boy appeared. He never said a word, but he clearly wanted to be in my picture as he would not move. When I was done sketching, I held it up for him to see. He came running [...]

Baja Palms

Whenever I would journey to Baja in winter, the first thing I always wanted to do was perch myself beneath a palm tree, and listen to the sound of the ocean. Ahhhhh, the Baja palms assured me it was time for some much needed rest and relaxation, along with some fresh, new Baja inspirations for [...]

Baja Garden/yellow

Ahhh, the lovely gardens in Baja are a feast for the eye. I am always pulling out my sketch book to draw flowers or capture snippets of cool patterns, then put them together for a new floorcloth design. There is an abundance of both in Mexico. Many a lovely Baja garden to explore, and color [...]
