    I painted this in Apalachacola, FL. What I was attracted to in this scene was how the clutter and garbage looked so interesting in its orchestration and patterns. What made me paint it was meeting the owner and hearing what he had to say. He told me that the city had been trying to get him to clean his property for some time. But he thought it looked great...it was his collection of stuff that he loved. He seemed to cherish everything scattered around. The first thing I thought was, one mans trash...another mans treasure. And I had to paint it. I even got him (the owner) to pose for me for a small session during the painting. When he posed, thats when the blinding light began to lower itself on the scene. I really enjoyed making this painting.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
