Recently completed a commission project for a woman who has a beautiful pagoda and garden in her backyard. I enjoyed painting this for her, trying to capture the rich texture and lush colors of her garden. 30×24 oil on canvas. (SOLD)
Here’s another look at the colorful buildings of Willemstad, Curacao. I painted a slightly different perspective as a commissioned wedding gift, and this was the alternate painting selection to that. (I typically create two paintings for commission projects, providing the client a choice.) 24×18 oil on canvas.
The leaves are a vivid golden yellow, made even more so by the bright afternoon sun shining down as I walked along the trail. Here and there, a shy leaf falls silently to the ground, its summer job now completed. 30 x 40 oil on canvas.
Monhegan Island sits 16 miles off the coast of Maine. It is home primarily to a tiny population of lobstermen and their families. Life there is harsh, and simple. And it is beautiful. 20×30 oil on canvas.
Built in 1895, the Stovall Mill Bridge is a one-lane covered bridge spanning Chickamauga Creek in the North Georgia mountains. This painting was created for a family member and is 24×18 oil on canvas.
Commissioned as a gift for a recently married couple to commemorate the location in which they became engaged in Curacao. 24×18 oil on canvas. SOLD.
Sometimes, I tell myself that whenever I leave someplace special — be it the beach, the mountains or wherever — that place ceases to exist once I’ve left. It somehow makes my leaving it behind a bit easier. Of course, I know the waves keep rolling up onto the beach, or, as in the case of this recently completed painting, the brook keeps babbling away. 48×36 oil on canvas.
Deep, lush greens spilling into a sunlit mountain stream. A rock here and there. These are the elements of my most recent oil painting, “Oasis.” 40×30.
Sometimes, all you have to do to find answers is to be still and listen. Often, nature provides a calming soundtrack to do so. This painting was inspired by a recent contemplative walk through the woods where I happened upon this tranquil setting. 36×36 oil on canvas. (SOLD. Thank You!)
