I created this painting from a photo my son took during a recent visit to Ireland. It moves me — as often happens when I see such a sentinel of time — that this small footbridge remains after bearing witness to centuries of events. Faithfully doing its job, each rock still laid where it was placed by the original builder. Heavy palette knife and brush stroke texture on this 24×18 oil on canvas original.
A recent commission. The client and her family enjoy special memories of Lake Eufaula in southeast Alabama, which she refers to as her happy place. This painting now hangs in her North Georgia mountain home as a reminder of those times and that happy place. 36×24 oil on canvas.
Along the southeastern coast of Brazil, the city of Caraguatatuba — or Caragua for short — lies basking in the Atlantic ocean sun. This is a beach scene in that city. 40×30 oil on canvas.
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.
