TOUR EIFFEL Acrylic on canvas. 5x7in. $70. This is done from photos I took at night in Paris. I wanted to make it bold and simple. It is a beautiful sight and seemed impossible to photograph and do it justice.
THOSE EYES. Watercolor and colored pencil on paper. 11x14in. $308. In this one I wanted to focus on the beautiful eyes and expression. I loved playing with the color here.
OUR TEAM. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. SOLD. I did this from an iPhone picture of my brother and his wife walking into the Bears game at Giants Stadium. I just thought it was a cute sentiment with them wearing their team jerseys and holding hands as they enter the rival’s territory. Go Team Steve and Liz!
WATERING CAN. Acrylic on canvas. 10x10in. SOLD. I did this from a picture I snapped of some flowers on my front doorstep during a sunny afternoon.
JOEY. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. $640. This is a classic portrait of a really special little dog with a big personality.
FINDING EACH OTHER. Acrylic on canvas board. 16x20in. $220. This abstract is an expression of how a couple seeks to find each other and navigate our own egos while trying to stay connected.
1953. Oil on canvas board. 18x24in. SOLD. This was done from a small black and white photo of my parents taken at their wedding in 1953. I did this for their 50th anniversary. I believe it is somewhere in Wisconsin now.
FRANKLIN. Acrylic on canvas. 5x7in. SOLD. This was my mother’s cat. His name was Franklin. There is a glow from where he is looking out the window at the Nevada sun.
ST. CROIX SUNSET. Watercolor and colored pencil on paper. 11x14in. $254. I must have 100s of photos of this scene from Fredricksted in St. Croix. I wanted to play up the rich color and feel the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the water. I used white acrylic for highlights on the waves.
BOYS. Acrylic on canvas. 8x10in. SOLD. This was a commission, done from a photograph. I enjoyed doing this one, as I don’t often paint children. You can just feel their innocense and light.
MIND CLUTTER. Acrylic on canvas. 10x10in. $200. This is more a painting of an emotion than of a particular person. This is darkness, moodiness, mind clutter.
BOO. Colored pencil on paper. 11x14in. SOLD. This is the much beloved black lab of a close friend of mine, Sandy. I worked really hard to get the expression right on this one. Pets have very distinct faces, just like humans.
