Red Stockings

One of my favorite daily painters is Jacqui Faye Michel. A friend of mine saw several of Jacqui's paintings and asked me to do an interpretation of a couple of them to hang in one of her bed and bath rooms she calls " The Saloon" as she could not afford to buy the original from Jacqui (I think the original were already sold anyway). This painting is my interprtation. I just hope I did it justice. And, of course, because it is a reproduction of Jacqui's work (and also done specifically for a friend) it is not for sale. It is oil on gessoed watercolor paper.

Cloud study

Here is another "monkey see monkey" do lesson. 16" x 20" oil on canvas. $125.00

Terry's Flowers

This was my painting that I did as a lesson along with a student that takes private lessons from me ( she calls these lessons "monkey see monkey do" because she sits right beside me and copies every motion I make with the brushes and paint). 16" x 20" gallery wrapped canvas. $325.00. The photo does not show the texture and vibrancy of color. This painting is much prettier than the camera can capture. To purchase email me at and be sure to put "painting" in the subject line.

Large Red Rose

This is a very sad time for me. My large furry companion of 13 years passed away in the wee hours of the morning yesterday. Samson was a Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog. He was absolutely the most elegant, gentle and loyal dog I have ever known. He was my constant companion from the time he was seven weeks old until his passing yesterday. I have a painting of him in the works and will post it as soon as it its finished. But right now my greif is so enormous that I can't bring myself to work on it until a few more days have passed. So today I post this Large Red Rose in his honor. Samson - April 28, 1995 to February 4, 2008. I miss you so!

Katie at the beach house

Commission pencil drawing. One of a kind. Sold.

Moonlit Falls

Here is the third waterfall study. I call this one moonlit falls. It was done on a white canvas instead of a black canvas that I used in the other two paintings. I also eliminated the vegetation. This painting oil on 11" x 14" canvas panel. The price is $75.00. To purchase email me at

Forest Waterfalls

This originally started out as a practice lesson for my painting class. I was teaching them to paint a waterfall and how to make the water move. The next thing I know they have me putting in cliffs, rocks, shrubs and trees turning this into a full fledge painting. I now have three of these in different sizes. This one is 18" x 24" oil on canvas. Price is $150.00. There is also one that is 16" x 20" for $125.00. If you would like to purchase either one of the these email me at with the title "painting" in the subject line. The third is a little different and will follow in the next post.
