Shadow Slope. 6" x 6", oil on gessobord

One of my favorite places I used to walk my dog to, in Chatham on Cape Cod. The shadows would sweep across the sloping grass and across the marsh below, always creating a cool view.

Cody Canyon, 5" x 7", oil on gessobord

This was done from a rather old photo, one of many I kept after living in Cody, WY for a few years. I painted it rather quickly, thinking of how it would be if I were standing there right now and had only a short time before the sun moved and changed the lighting in this small canyon. I really liked the way the sage glows... probably only recognizable as sagebrush to me! No matter; this was about the light and glow and purple-orange-ness of the rocks.

I was entranced by the soft colors on this little goat's fur... while it's easy to get caught up in facial details etc I still tried for a loose look and feel.

These two horses are best friends and do everything together. They are totally unrelated in their genetics but they act like twin sons of different mothers, and they do look alike - other than one being chestnut and the other bay. They are quite funny to watch eating, lounging, rolling, walking or just standing - together.

"Rumblers", 12" x 24", canvas digital print

I am always inspired by horses running or playing or otherwise interacting. These two were about to run off with energy building... I tried to capture some of that energy through the brushwork.
This is available as a fine art print.

Sanderlings are the super-active, tiny shorebirds that you see chasing the waves back and forth along the shore.
I've spent many hours watching them scurry, taking lots of photos of poor quality! Luckily I can amend things by painting them!
