       Some of the weathered trees that stand along
the edge of the Grand Canyon have some of the most
twisted bodies. You wonder if it's the wind or lack of
water that makes them stretch and lean in the directions 
that they do. This piece was painted in my studio from
shots I took at the Grand Canyon last week.

            "Grand Canyon Staircase"
              16" x 20" original oil on canvas

                     Available on my website

        I have painted this scene before from the 
Grand Canyon. It's what artists call the "Golden
Hour" when the sun is fleeting and you have to 
get in as many shots as you can because in an hour
it will be all gone.

           "Monument Skyscrapers"
                16" x 20" original oil on canvas

                         Available on my website

    This is a scene from Monument Valley that is one
of my favorite places to visit and paint images from.
The formations here look like they are from another
planet.

                    "Midnight in Moab"
                    11" x 14" original oil on panel


          This is a scene of a Moab formation that I 
  changed to a nocturne. I shot this reference a
  few years ago during the day but for this piece
I thought it would make a great night scene.

          "Ice Cream You Scream"
             8" x 10" original oil on panel

       The many shades in the light and in the 
shadows of a vanilla ice cream cone are
what's fun to analyze and paint in this 
subject.

      Monument Valley in Northeast Arizona is 
famous for the many westerns that were shot there
and after just one hour of being there you begin
to see how unique it is. It looks like no other place
on earth.

          "Evening Colors at Tahoe"

   The scenery at Tahoe is very distinctive in
it's ageless pines and rock formations along
with the water meeting up with them, but the
color palette is is just as unique.

              "Last Light on Saguaro"
                    8" x 10" original oil on panel

                     Click here to bid on eBay

      Just East a few miles from me is an area with
hills and valleys full of Saguaro Cactus and a 
lake named after them. It has always been my 
favorite place to visit since it sits just below
Superstition Mountain.

       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.
