6" x 6" acrylic on deep canvas painted on all sides SOLD
I photographed many pictures of this little guy who tried so fervently to enter our glass window. He would sit on the sill and peer in, with a wondering look, and then fly off, prepare himself for the next dive, and give me just enough time to make a new shot. Luckily he was actually hitting the screen, so no hard impact.

11" x 14" watercolor on 140 lb Arches paper $225.00
In a park where I was photographing three sisters in the morning sunshine, this delightful young child had climbed up onto a rock wall, and when she turned around, her skin, hair and clothing were glowing. The shadows on the side of her face were a lovely soft lavender and the breeze made wisps in her hair.

8 x 10 original graphite drawing $150.00
On a ferry ride from France to England, this gnarly, joy filled man was hanging on the railing, taking in every ounce of beauty that he could. I asked him if it would be alright to snap his amazing visage, and he gladly agreed. His character shows in his face, leathery like his jacket, and good humored like his tee shirt and he has a sense of familiarity. Like someone who has probably worked and played hard, is good natured but tough and tries not to miss out on anything.

7" x 10" original watercolor $60.00
Staying in Walter's home on the golf course in Rancho Santa Marguerita, CA, was like being in an Italian villa home. His accoutrements were soothing and comfortable and elegantly tasteful. I felt like the queen mother! This was a photo of his buffet with Italian tapestry on the wall.

18" x 24" original sculptured acrylic on deep canvas, painted on all sides $260.00
The undulating, blowing waves in sundown sloshing upon the boulders in the Pacific ocean remind me of how violent, yet controlled, the waters can be. Beautiful, cleansing, yet terrible and mesmerizing.

9" x 15" original watercolor on Arches 140 lb paper $250.00
This painting laid around the house for 25 years as just the rocks and the tree, but it had something I liked. Perhaps it was the grayish, misty colors. One day it attracted me to it and told me about the bushes in the park on a snowy day with blue shadows. I complied as my brushes wet the paper and bled in the soft fuzziness. The twin towers seemed appropriate for the background beyond the snow field. It saddened me a little, but also got me to thinking that maybe it would mean something to someone. I do love this painting now.
