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.
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.
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.
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.
JOEY. Acrylic on canvas. 16x20in. $640. This is a classic portrait of a really special little dog with a big personality.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
