About my Images

I am watercolor artist. I have veered from traditional painting using brushes, paper and paint to using the computer. My tools now are digital brushes, software, and a digital tablet.

I am now able to paint more of what I see in my mind's eye and enjoy the instant gratification.
I hope you enjoy this site.

Alaleas at Butchart Gardens

A couple years back, I had the good fortune to visit Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The gardens are spectacular. There's no way to see everything in a day. This painting was inspired from some of the pristine flowers and plant life that abound on the 55 acres.

The Mandolin

Last year I attended an art show at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. It was as fascinating to watch the people as it was to view the art. As I was leaving the grounds, I spotted this lady holding a mandolin. She was about 20 feet off the path just standing in the woods as if she was in deep contemplation. I shot several images before she moved on. I did this painting to capture that mood.
