Winter Snow Morning - o/c 19.5" x 22.5"


"Winter Snow Morning" is a recently completed painting depicting the architecture of trees gathered in the forefront of the distant horizon. The application of white, gray, brown and icy blue -- the orphans of the color spectrum conveys tranquility.  Bright yellow hues of the early morning sun barely showing herself, draws one's eye and imagination into the start of a new day.

English Garden Border - o/c 29" x 33"

sold

Throughout my years traveling, many of the estates visited in England have some of the most beautiful "borders" created around their gardens. Often stone or brick, or very high coiffured hedges, I've found none of them to give one an impression of being confined. This particular one is rather more serene in it's design, yet the blue doors are inviting with boxwoods balanced in front, and barren trees dusted with snow.

I have always enjoyed the cycles of the four seasons, yet during winter, I prefer to create my landscape paintings as "unspoiled and pristine."

Red Poppies In Provence - o/c 20.5" x 25"


Gentle rolling hills outside of Aix-en-Provence on the drive to Mont Sainte-Victoire (Cezanne's Mountain) with clusters of vivid red poppies among the gnarly trees.

"Red Poppies in Provence" is the latest in the titled series of work. Painted from memories, I embellish the glorious landscape of these flowers within the blades of grass.

Early Moonrise - o/c 19.5" x 22.5"


I have created numerous paintings in oil of landscapes with a full moon in morning and evening in order to portray tranquility during that time of day. 

In "Early Moonrise" above, no breeze whispers to pass, so the distant river is without ripples.  Over decades, a section of the river has overflowed dividing the tree lined ridge, causing a stream to cascade downward. The moon, full and bright, is reflected in the water and provides atmospheric realism to my classical landscape painting.

All other "moonscapes" have been acquired, and this painting, recently completed after weeks of work in my studio, will be available for viewing by end of March.

Early Morning Winter - o/c 19.5" x 22.5"


"Early Morning Winter" completed after weeks of working in my studio and returning to sketches and notes for specific details. Early rising required to maintain truth with the various colors in the sky and at the horizon while the light seemingly changes every second.

Yet all this, is worth the time spent as the painting breaths life within and promises the gift of a new day.
