The Sycamore Tree

Watercolor, 15"x20"   We have a big Sycamore tree by the pond on our family farm. When we were kids, our dad made us a swing rope that hung from one of the big branches looming out towards the water. He put knots in the rope along with a small, round wooden seat at the [...]

Winter Magpies

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" When I lived in Taos, the winter magpies would appear and fill this big, bare tree out the living room window. I would sit by the fire, and watch them swoop and dive and spin and soar in and out and around the tree for hours. It was an acrobatic show [...]

Acequia Madre Patio

Acrylic on paper, 9"x12" I lived once in a beautiful, old adobe in one of the oldest parts of town that was home to one of the oldest acequias. An acequia is a manmade water canal that serves as a community waterway. I guess this one was the mother of all waterways in town at [...]

The Leopard Dream

Acrylic on canvas, 30'x40" I have rarely painted a vision spawned from a vivid dream. There was so much power in this one I had to go for it. I was living with these five leopards, and I could communicate with them. Everywhere I went, they followed me. It was great as I felt so [...]

Purple Tree

Watercolor, 8"x10" This is one of my earliest watercolor works. I was still in art school when I did this painting. The exercise was to completely wet the paper, and paint as quickly as possible. I just started putting the colors on, then added the tree. My teacher just loved it, and said my purple [...]

Daisies in the Wind

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" I had a delightful surprise on another one of my summer walks through the country hills. I came across a hillside covered with daisies in the wind. There  was not a single daisy anywhere else except on this one hill. They were all blowing in the wind, and I wondered if [...]

Crows in the Orange Tree

Aqua oil on canvas, 30"x30" Autumn in Virginia brings out the deep, rich shades in the earth while the trees blaze in vibrant colors. On an afternoon walk, I came upon a brilliant orange tree where the crows were flocking. I sat under the tree, and within minutes the tree was full of what seemed [...]

Blue Emergence

Acrylic on canvas, 30"x36" While sitting in the garden, my friend the moon sends me white butterflies as symbols of the never ending cycle of transformation. I want to be the butterfly, and have wings to fly. But first, I enter the cocoon and wait to be born to the Earth. I will develop courage [...]

Dove Love

My good friend, Rosario, once gave me a beautiful wooden carving with two white doves on it. I loved it so much I had to do a design. My dove love design has two white doves sharing a tree branch under the sun against a cobalt blue backdrop with an orange border and decorative lime [...]
