acrylic and oil on paper 12"x16" I painted this from a photo I took in Kilarney, Ireland. It's really hard to capture the beautiful greens of Ireland!

Stormy Waters

acrylic and oil on paper 12"x16" I'm really into painting waves lately. They're fun and challenging and satisfying to my soul.


oil on paper 16"x20" This is a painting that I did from a book by Jerry Yarnell. It is a repeat of one of the very first paintings I ever did. The instructions would have me add much more detail: a tree in the foreground, rocks and weeds in the lakeshore, more sunlight on the meadow by the church. But right now, the painting evokes in me a sense of twilight, and it seems just right. So, I've signed it and moved on.
