Central Park, "Winter Walk in Central Park"

Winter Walk in Central Park

I wanted to capture the solitude of the park in winter with the gleam of the headlights indicating the heavy traffic just beyond the snow covered oasis.

Balloon Painting, "Flight of the Swan 3"

Flight of the Swan 3
20x24 Original - Acrylic on stretched canvas
This is the third painting in an ongoing series featuring the intrepid "Swan" hot air balloon. So far I have painted the Swan flying at morning, midday, and dusk.
Balloons, to me, represent freedom and escapism from everyday life and also adventure. Available from the artist for $900.00

Fantasy painting, "Bumbershoot"

This dapper fellow is sitting on the roots of an enormous tree in a rain storm protected by his umbrella. Why? ...I couldn't say.

Water Spout Peril

"Water Spout Peril"

This Painting seemed to paint itself. I watched it evolve as I went. I had no preconceived idea as I began, and the romanticized drama played out through my brush. It reminds me of the victorian morality paintings that show man's helplessness against the forces of nature. I like it.
