Swallow Fountain- San Juan Capistrano, CA


Swallow Fountain- San Juan Capistrano, CA 10"x8" oil
I was caught by the contrast of the warm yellow sunlight and the cool blue shadows on the fountain. I tried to retain that idea throughout the painting process. I kept the brushwork loose to give a feeling of energy. By keeping the shapes simple, the brushwork loose, and the details to a minimum, the painting has the feel of a fleeting moment, or memory.   Bid on Ebay [...]

Still Water - Malibu 14x18 oil


Still Water- Malibu 14"x18" oil
I painted this from life when I lived in Southern California. This wash is behind The Adamson House in Malibu, on PCH, where Malibu Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. I had been to this spot many times and was always attracted to the shape of that tree. It had been there for many years and it was a pleasure to finally paint it. Some tourists even filmed me.    Bid on Ebay [...]

Japanese Bowl 8x10 Oil


Japanese Bowl 8"x10" oil
  Because this painting is mostly various tones of white, the darks become the accents. They prevent the painting from being washed out. It's the darks that really make this painting.   Bid on Ebay [...]

Italian Coffee


Italian Coffee, 10x8, oil on linen
This is an original oil painting I created in 2010. The subject is a Bialetti Moka Pot, or Italian coffee pot, and an espresso cup. The pot and cup are sitting upon a wooden table with little reflection on it. The light source is coming from the right.    This is still my favorite way to make coffee. This painting celebrates the enjoyment of simple pleasures and gives the feel of early morning where the world is quiet and grey.    SOLD               [...]

The Old Guard


10x8, oil on linen
The path is an old railway line that runs along the River Dee. It passes right in front of the house where my wife grew up. I liked the idea of the path representing a path of life. It goes into the shadows with just a hint of light further on, but beyond that is unknown. The tree looked to me like a guard standing watch.   SOLD [...]

Narcissus- Oak Creek Canyon


Oil on Linen 8" x 10" 2010
Here is my latest auction listing. This is an original oil painting, painted in 2010. This is in Oak Creek Canyon, just outside of Sedona, Arizona. I think trees, especially the older ones, have a lot of personality. They are like old gods. This tree reminded me of the Greek myth of Narcissus, leaning over to gaze at his reflection in the water.      SOLD [...]

Lone Tree- Locket Meadow


Oil on Linen 8" x 10" 2010
One of the questions an artist needs to ask while composing a painting is, "what elements are essential to best communicate my idea?" I wanted to have a strong, but simple painting. I ended up eliminating a lot of the surrounding trees and brush, as I felt they weren't necessary to the painting. I also simplified the detail in the background which helps draw the viewer's eyes to the tree.     SOLD [...]
