& Genre or Structures in Landscapes
"Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life." ~Rachel Carson
The comment I hear most often from viewers of my art is that they sense peace when they look at it. Enter here to find more peaceful landscapes inspired from my places. Included are pieces painted in my studio and on location (en plein air). Some have people or man-made objects included but all are set in nature.
Nature Close Ups
"If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere." ~Vincent Van Gogh
There are tiny treasures all around us but we must pause long enough to observe them. Enter here to view my paintings of small, beautiful treasures of nature.
Still Lifes & Interiors
Finding beauty in the ordinary is a gift that brings hope into every day life.
Discovering striking contrasts and subtleties in how light and shadow create patterns brings me joy in observing and painting common things. I began painting still lifes in college when it was impossible to paint outdoors and we were not allowed to use photographs. Through this, I developed my eye and still enjoy the beauty I find in creating still life paintings.
The paintings listed as "Vintage" in this collection were done in the 1980's as my college work.
Enter here to see a variety of subjects painted (or drawn) as special commissioned work. Of course, all originals are sold in this collection but reproductions are available of some of them.
