High Country Grandeur

Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 36"

This is one of my 3 masterworks that I've created so far this year.  The view is the central Oregon Cascades with Mt. Jefferson featured.  I have explored countless streams and meadows since I was a young boy and this painting is the essence of my feelings for that wild country.  A great amount of detail and repainting took place to get this work to the finish line.

La Vecchia Strada ( The Old Road)

Acrylic on Canvas 
20" x 16"

I have been painting an on-going Tuscan series for eight years now.  This painting may be one of my all-time favorites.  The sky and hills started to take on a different look and feel than the image in my head.  It virtually painted itself while I applied one hundred thousand brush strokes!  I moved forward carefully when I realized that it had a special 'atmosphere' that had to carry through the entire painting.

Serata Venezania (Venetian Sky)

Acrylic on Canvas
10" x 8"
This is a landmark scene at the entrance to the Grand Canal in Venice.  The "Santa Maria della Salute" is four hundred years old and is held up by over one million pine poles!  The contrasts of color and brightness along with ancient architecture attracted me to this scene.  I wanted to quit halfway through!  The detail on the building is so exacting and I was using a four hair brush at times.
