Southwest Storm

20"x20" oil on canvas $1500

I was in New Mexico a couple years ago in the late fall. The season was in transition and I was lucky enough to experience some fabulous storms that rolled through the area. In some places, all you could see was rock, sand, shrubs and vast amounts of land. Weaving in and out amongst it all is the Rio Grande.
This piece is one of a dozen of mine that will be in a 4-Person art show that is now open to the public! Windermere Realty is hosting the show, which will run through May 31st. 1901 NE Broadway, Portland, Oregon. Hours are Monday-Friday 9-5. There are two receptions scheduled back to back. April 30th and May 1st. Come have a look!

This is another piece that was heavily influenced by the churning skies of the Pacific Northwest. This will also be present at my next opening, at Windermere Realty, 1901 NE Broadway Street, Portland, Oregon. We've almost locked in a reception date.......Will post when I know for sure!

West Hills

This is a piece that was inspired by the warm fall colors that were intermixed throughout the West Hills area of Portland, Oregon, last autumn. It will be one of a half dozen in a 4-person art show this April at a local Windermere Realty, 1901 NE Broadway St. (They had the walls, we had the art.) Stay tuned for the reception date!

Beyond The Clouds


This was a painting I donated for a February auction at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery in Salem, Oregon. The proceeds went to help the non profit, Friends of Pimpollo. Happily, it went for the maximum bid of $300. I usually work on canvas so it was a treat to try out the "feel" of a different surface and maybe learn something new. Because of the size, cost and ease, I'm thinking I may come back to this medium in the future. Happy day....this is my first blog!
