Sunflowers and Cherries

12 x 12 Oil on Canvas


This was created from a set up in my studio. The sunflowers are from my garden. This painting is available for purchase through Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, Texas

Grand Teton National Park

8 x 10 oil on canvas board


This was painted on July 16th from a lovely location in the park. The red tree was a dying breed, but added good color to the landscape.

Mountain Moran
8 x 10 Oil on Canvas board
I painted this on location during my summer vacation in the Jackson Hole area in Wyoming. The Grand Tetons are a beautiful site. We set up at this spot and apparently it was exactly where every tourist wanted to be. It was a clear crisp day with temperatures in the 70's.

Pansies and Bird of Paradise

18 x 24 Oil on Canvas


I painted a small painting similar to this from a set up in my studio. I photographed the set up and painted this picture from that. I turned the canvas upside down and painted one colorspot after the other, not focusing on what I was painting. I also used the pallet knife for most of the process. This was a fun project with a different twist.

Grapes on the Vine

8 x 16 Oil on Canvas board


I painted this while participating in the Last Friday Gallery Night in Granbury. I painted at the D'Vine Wine on the square. I was also the featured artist that week with a little photo op in the local paper.

Sunflowers and Coleus

11 x 14 Oil on Canvas board


I painted this from a set up in my studio. The sunflowers are from my garden. The green vase was a recent gift from my sister.

Indian Blanket Covered Field
16 x20 oil on Canvas
I found this wonderful wildflower field in the spring time and returned many times. I painted this from a field study in the studio.

Anna's Irises

16 x 20

Oil on Canvas


I made a new friend when I stopped off at Anna May's place after admiring her beautiful flower garden. She was gracious enough to let a few of us paint in her yard. I photographed these and painted them later in the studio.
