Splendid Comes the Night

Acrylic on Canvas
It would be possible to see a scene such as this one, if a person had the good fortune to be there at the perfect moment.  I am lucky enough to be able to paint my own day dreams.  This painting takes you in and makes you dream.  By the way, if anyone thinks that painting looks easy, I repainted the sky four times to get it right.

Summer Buzz

Acrylic on Board
I have developed a real love for lavender fields.  One of the largest and most beautiful fields in the Northwest is owned by a friend and collector of my paintings.  It is only 25 minutes from my house and he has been kind enough to grant me full access to the farm.  This painting was created mostly on location during their annual 'lavender festival'.   The title comes from the amazing sound that a half million honey bees make!

A Day in Pinot Country

Acrylic and Oil on Canvas
It is fun and relaxing to visit "wine country".  Although, I do seem to need a nap after two winery stops!  Artistically, the vine rows make an interesting design element.


Acrylic on Canvas
It is hard to find the words to describe standing in a wilderness meadow with an incredible sunset on display.  It is emotional and spiritually uplifting to me.  I wish that I was there right now. 
Don't you?
