Rainy Day in the City

Origiinal Painting - Acrylic on Canvas 12x16

Another rainy day, but I have always liked thunderstorms and dark overcast days. Perfect weather for taking a nap or curling up with a good book. This reminds me of Milwaukee's Third Ward. I created my greys with mixtures of alizarin crimson and hooker's green for a warm urban haze.rain canvas prints

Fading Majesty Castle at Sunset

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 12x16

This is a purely romantic painting from my imagination and not meant to depict any specific castle, but rather to just convey a quiet, melancholy mood. It might have something to do with all the dark rainy days we've had lately. $800.00

Old Blue Eyes

Original Painting - Acrylic on Canvas 9x12

On the beach in Samara Costa Rica, this shaggy beachbum came and joined us. My friend Walt and I were sitting on a log in the shade of some palm trees while our wives waded in the Pacific ocean. He walked right up, wagged his tail and plopped down in front of us like we were family. He looked up at us with these startling blue eyes as if to say "Que Pasa, dudes". Available now for $600.00
