       While in New york City in 2014, it rained
both days that we had planned to visit Central
Park and the Metropolitan Art Museum. Turns 
out it was great weather to do both as it is just 
as fun to capture the rainy days in the Park as 
much as it is to see great art out of the rain.

     Painting fruit is a nice change from landscapes
because of the intense color that some have. Painting 
glass is just as fun.

      This is a scene of an afternoon at Lake Tahoe.
There are probably clearer days there but I love
it when the background shapes dissolve into the 
color of the sky.

                   "Monterey Harbor"

     This was the scene I painted from life when I 
visited Monterey in April, 2013. The history of
early California life was still evident with the old
wharfs and even older cobblestone side streets.
Tide was rolling out here. Its an amazing place 
visit and an even better place to paint.

    This is a scene of a coffee shop table from
somewhere in the midwest. I shot a bunch of
food still lifes back in the early 2000's that I 
painted a lot then and recently found the old 
shots to paint again.

This was painted in my studio from photos I took

     Canyon Lake is a huge man made lake just 
Northeast of the Phoenix Valley. I took photos
of this lake before we even moved here in 2007.
On one of our trips from our home in South Dakota
we would drive to San Diego to visit our kids and
we would stop for a day and I would explore the 
whole valley.

   This was an old set up of limes that I
photographed back in 2006 or so. The cutting
board was lost in our move to AZ but I have
a new one that will get just as aged real soon.

    I painted this scene last month from a slightly
different angle and had so much fun painting the 
dappled light on the rocks and foliage, that I had 
to try it again. Just as fun the second time!

     I was looking through old CD's to find things 
to paint when I came across an old watermelon
shoot that I created a few years ago. The glowing
translucent meat and the colors it produces has 
always fascinated me.
