    Southern Composition

    Great composition and elegant light on your well executed ferns, lily pads, grass and heron. Very captivating.

    Liberated Dreams

    Great Painting

    Snoqualmie Falls

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the movement of the falls and Salish Lodge looks perfect!


    Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places in the world. This painting really conveys the distinctive intangible quality of a Laguna Beach morning. Beautifully painted - the mood captured elevates the piece. Bravo.


    The composition keeps the eye moving while still conveying serenity. The brushwork is beautifully handled. This piece is deceptively simple. Well done.
