Follow Me II

Follow Me II 16x20

On a recent trip to Grand Teton National Park I saw this family of swans swimming in Flat Creek near Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  I love how the one cygnet wants to go the other direction.

You Can’t Catch Me!

You Can't Catch Me 14x18

14″ x 18″ Oil on canvas panel

This is Piper, my happy little Schnoodle.  She loves to run and chase.  On a recent trip to Fredericksburg, Texas, we took some photos of her among the Blue Bonnets.  The wildflowers were beautiful this year.

Coastal Path

36″ x 48″ Oil on gallery wrap with painted edges

This is a North Carolina coastal scene.  It is a commission based on a smaller sold painting.  I really enjoyed revisiting this scene and tweaking it to make it work in this larger format.  I hope to paint more commissions.

A plein air painting from Hurley Park in Salisbury.  It was tweaked a bit in my studio.  I find that I sometimes need to revisit a painting to adjust the values and colors to my liking.
