20X24 Acrylic, Casein and Pastel on canvas
I enjoy how these tall spindly trees grow, seeking the light. Aspen are a prolific tree in the mountains around Park City Utah and I made many photographs of them while hiking high up the bare slopes of the ski resort in early Spring.

11X14 Watercolor on Canvas
So many wonderful sights, sounds and smells at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. I gathered a lot of images on my afternoon trip through the bustling market on the Seattle waterfront for several future paintings. I enjoyed making small watercolor studies while standing among the crowd of tourists and locals all jostling for fresh fish, crab, clams produce and flowers.

11X14 Watercolor on stretched canvas
I've always loved how watercolor does what it wants to do - painting with watercolor on canvas has added some excitement to the already unpredictable process. Knowing that I wanted to eat this grapefruit made for a spontaneous, fast and uncomplicated painting and working four spheres first thing in the morning was a real brain-teaser - almost didn't need any coffee...almost.

A hike to the top of Silver Springs Waterfall was well worth the effort as I stood almost under the falls with mist spraying over me. Near Entiat in Eastern Washington there is a distinct difference in Evergreen trees and of course that there is more sunshine - always a good thing.

The classic image of a shepherd and his flock was captured outside Jerusalem town in the rolling countryside of Israel. When I travel I enjoy making small watercolor sketches in a hand made journal that I make specifically for the trip. I enjoy the quick, first impression, sketches so much that I thought I would try sizing one up and painting on canvas. The feeling wasn't the same as being on location but the result was similar and I enjoyed the process.
