Evening Glow – in progress

Evening Light - in progress


Loosening up a bit with a new direction in my painting approach…..

Progress on Reflection #1

Reflection 1 in progress


I’m experimenting with a combination of paints with oil pastels for the lily pads, over a combination of various other media. Once the oil pastels dry a bit, I’ll go in to add shadows and details.

Monsoon Season is here

It looks like the monsoon season finally arrived yesterday and gave us a spectacular light show last night with a bit of rain and slightly cooler temps. The breeze is wonderful and I’m  ready to leave behind my desk, where I have spent the past week tweaking my newly designed website.

I’m looking forward to starting a new painting that will be a combination of watercolors and oil pastels, based on this photo that I took in April at Cypress Gardens, near Charleston SC. With our extreme drought and several wildfires burning around New Mexico, this lovely water image is a companion to my rain dances.


Further along on Jackson Lake
