I wanted to try to do some pallet knife painting and this was the result. The strong sunset makes for some good knife work.

Arroyo Seco Landmark
Arroyo Seco Landmark
18x20 oil on canvas

This old truck is still in use in a small town outside of Taos called Arroyo Seco. It caught my eye immediately when we were passing through, so we stopped and took photographs. The owners of the little shop shown beside the truck still use this every day. It is so old it has “character”, which is a lofty goal for all of us, isn’t it!

Spanish Café at Night
Spanish Café at Night
oil on canvas

This beautiful little courtyard café in Spain was so charming to me that I had to paint it. I love the way the lights are reflecting on everything. It had been raining and the people had gone inside. The rain made the reflections glow even more.

Pamela
Pamela
30x40 oil on canvas

I painted this nude in an almost completely dark room with a small lamp focused on her and one on my easel. I was very pleased with the way the right side of her body is almost lost in the shadows. I wanted the viewer to respond to it in their own personal way. The pose can assume a sense of melancholy, maybe modesty, or even fear. In any case, the beauty of the model is apparent.

Afternoon Music
Afternoon Music
20x24 oil on board

This painting came about when I was visiting the island of Bali. We passed this old man on our way to Tanah Lot, and he seemed so picturesque and serene as he played his flute. The old water buffalo seemed perfectly content, and almost to be listening intently. We turned the car around and took a photograph, which captured the moment precisely.

Bali Dancer
Bali Dancer
16x20 oil on canvas

From my trip to Bali, this beautiful girl was performing the Balinese Legong Dance in Ubud. The girls who perform the lead in this dance are typically about 12 or 13 years old. The demands of the dance are quite difficult for any but the most young and limber. I thought she was so lovely and took a photograph with a telescopic lens. This painting is a result of that shot.

Saturday Soccer
Saturday Soccer
16x20 oil on board

I was watching a soccer game when this I conceived of this painting. The blue sky, the red shirt and all the “soccer moms” around seemed like a perfect example of today’s family life. The little boy has such a sense of fun on his face and the sun emphasized his features quite well.

Perennial Gardener
Perennial Gardener
12x16 oil on board

I was walking around Old Town Fort Collins when I saw this older gentleman sitting outside a shop called Perennial Gardener. It was early Spring and the name of the shop and the man sitting there seemed to fit perfectly. I snapped a photograph of him when he wasn’t looking and painted it later.

Bromeliad I
Bromeliad I
16x20 oil on canvas

I am not typically a still life artist, but I was prompted to paint this one when I noticed how the light struck the bromeliad with such beauty. The room was rather dark and the light came from a floor lamp in the same room. I placed it on the floor to get a different perspective.
