Whispers Through the Grove

Acrylic on Canvas
14" x 11"
$325. + shipping
This painting also took awhile to finish, but it was fun to paint.  As I paint, I can actually feel myself transported into the scene.  When I visit an aspen grove in the fall, I sometimes just sit and listen to the sound of the quaking leaves.  It is truly music for the soul.

Here Comes the Sun

9" x 13"
$400. + shipping
I found this beautiful and delicate little Northwest Coast basket and knew that it had to be surrounded by my favorite wildflower, the trillium.  This is a view of nature that we might not notice while on a walk, but it has a lot to offer.

Across the Universe

Acrylic on Panel
5" x 5"
$195 + shipping

This little gem is a favorite of mine.  It pretty much painted itself with me not knowing what the end result would be.  The colors are very striking, especially floating on a black background, in a black frame.  This is one my first in the "Dreamscape" series.

Windows Through Time

Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 48"
Collection of Mr. & Mrs. Arlie Brown

This piece is a commission that was requested at my Street of Dreams studio.  The client asked for a geometric theme.  I said okay, knowing that I have never used geometrics in any abstract!  I really got into it and I think that it turned out well.  Seeing it in its actual size is impressive.  *Please click on the image to enlarge it.

Dancing Water

Acrylic on Canvas
23" x 13"
Collection of Brickhaven Bed & Breakfast

I painted this awhile ago, but just delivered it to the new owner.  It was fun to paint even though a bit challenging.  I guess that they are all kind of hard or they would not be worth doing.
It is a classic Northwest waterfall at my favorite time of the year.
