Scary Ping (16X20 Acrylic)

He is really a nice dog, but he wants everyone to see that he is the boss.  I call this painting "Bite Me!"

Germany Street Scene (Gouache)

Based on an old photo from a trip to Germany about 25 years ago, I attempted to use gouache as the medium on a piece of cotton rag matte board.  It took a number of coats to get the true opaque effect however I like the resulting velvety surface.  I plan to try this in my sketch book.

Huey, Dewey and Louis (16X20 Oil Painting)

This is an update of a previous painting. It appears that I never actually finish a painting until it is sold, thus leaving me with a large collection of work in progress.

Another viewpoint from Earth.

Galactic Surf

On a recent trip to Yachats, Oregon we took a walk along the beach and discovered some interesting tide pools.   I plan to enter this image in the "Nature of Oregon" show hosted by the Photo Arts Guild in November.
