12" x 9" watercolor on watercolor canvas
Yet another for the 'Winter 2007' collection. I enjoy working
on this Fredrix watercolor canvas. Corrections are very easy in that even
the staining colors do not absorb into the canvas, so wiping out and painting

5" x 7" watercolor on paper - Moleskine sketchbook.
A quicky, loose sketch of three cardinals with a "patch on patch" background.
This is something Frank Webb does with many of his fine backgrounds. The secret to pulling
it off successfully is keeping the 'patches' very close in value.

22" x 30" watercolor on 140# cold pressed Arches
This is a full sheet abstract I've started for a friend. Will tweak as necessary to match the decor and wall color in her home. Stay tuned for the finished work.

6" x 6" watercolor on Strathmore paper.
This was a study of negative painting techniques. Notice how the
foliage seems to be 'carved' out of the dark background shape. Likewise,
the white tree trunk seems to pop out of the darker background. Negative

A park-side view of a lake with a city in the distance. Please forgive the poor perspective on the foreground newspaper stand. I see I was off by a good bit. Oh well, practice makes perfect (so THEY say!)
Thanks for looking.

20" x 30" oil on Yupo paper
An abstract view of an old Roman aqueduct. Yupo paper is a slick-surfaced paper
that can take all media. I've used it before for watercolor and acrylic, now I wanted to

10" x 14" watercolor on 140lb. Fabriano
I thought I'd do a rare figure study for a change. The photo is of me and one of my favorite artists -- Charles Sovek. This was taken at a workshop I took in AZ. The painting was done rather quickly, in a loose style that I've been experimenting around with. If nothing else, this just proves that I need to work on my "people" paintings :^)

12" x 16" oil on masonite panel (unframed)
$20.00 (free shipping to US)
This is a bird's-eye view of a coastal town. I used very fluid oil paint and worked in layers. Each additional layer used 'fatter' paint (more linseed or stand oil mixed with turp). I'm finding I really enjoy working with a more fluid painting style. I'll experiment further and display some more here. As always, thanks for looking and your comments are welcome!
