There is something about icebergs which captures the imagination. Maybe because most of us don't see them everyday. Found in remote polar regions, ‘bergs have an indefinable beauty. An artist's dream with the myriad of colors used to paint them. And of course, because of the Titanic, they also hold a mysterious danger.

It seems there are almost as many buoy shapes as our imagination will allow. One shake building on Martha’s Vineyard had obviously been collecting them for a long time. While working on this piece it was hard for me to choose my favorite. $4500. including custom framing.
The largest member of the cat family, the tiger’s biggest subspecies is the Amur (formally called the Siberian) which can achieve lengths of 10.5 feet from tip to tail.

The North Island Kaka in New Zealand is a wonderful parrot. I had a chance to see them in the woods on the North Island. While their feathers may seem dull at first glance, when they lift their wings, a fiery red/orange array of feathers dazzles the eye.

In this painting, I wanted to capture the excitement of an ocean feast. The seagulls are feeding on the bait fish. The bait fish are surfacing to escape the salmon underneath them. The orcas are swimming to the commotion to feed on the salmon. And me, well, I pull in my fishing lines and sacrifice a salmon dinner to watch.

Most of the time it is the animal which inspires me to paint a particular piece. Near the Platte River in Nebraska I was inspired by the color play of shadowed snow against the brilliant spent corn fields. Having sandhill cranes there was icing on the cake.

For our lunch break, our guide pulled us next to a large kopje in the Serengeti. It took a couple of seconds before I saw a pair of lionesses on a large rock and a single lioness sleeping in the shade. We weren’t the only ones watching the lions, as among the rocks were five helmeted guineafowl.

It was about an hour after the solar eclipse in 2017. We had had the perfect viewing spot, isolated on top of a hill with no people or buildings in sight. I was thinking of little else until we drove past some wild sunflowers on the small dirt road. When we got to the second or third grouping, I had to stop and grab some photos. The big surprise is that there were goldfinch flitting among the flowers. What a perfect setting for my favorite bird!
