Extra Sheds, oil on panel, 5.5×8.3 SOLD

I was drawn to the serenity and simplicity in this little gem of a scene. It conveys the peace and satisfaction that comes at the end of the day: work’s been done, the yard is mowed, and the low-angled sunset sends a subtle message of hope. Each shed gave off an air of having its own personality, and I attributed that to when they were built and the personality of each builder.

Snow Country, oil on canvas, 46×50 SOLD

I love the contrasting views on this road in Idaho. You can see the difference that water and light make on the landscape. The slow melting snow waters the north facing sides of the mountains provide for growing a forest and the south facing side is barren because it melted too fast.

Short Sand Creek, oil on canvas, 32×66 SOLD

I was drawn to this view along the Oregon Coast because of the moody lighting and color subtleties where a creek feeds out onto the sand and disappears at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. My aim was to pull viewers into the scene and then draw the eye to its details—the rocks, trees, leaves, water, reflections—and reward a closer inspection with the interplay of a myriad of colors and textures.
