I recently finished this very special custom work. Did you know that some people believe that a red cardinal is a representation of a loved one who has passed? When you see one it means that the loved one is visiting you and they usually show up when you most need them, to let you know that they will always be with you.

I have new representation! This piece was recently finished and dropped off at Marnee’s Studio, a new art space and gallery located at 2353 Airport Blvd in Mobile, AL. The Grand Opening Party is August 12 from 6-9 pm. “The event is FREE and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks and entertainment.” I will be live painting along with artist, Ian Glass. If you are local, please come to the opening and support this space! If not, work(s) can also be shipped! Contact the business owner (Renee) for more information.
“The Waiting” is an in progress work in which I am attempting to tackle the complex surface of what is called aquabord by Ampersand. I think that I am starting to figure it out and if it looks great sealed, it might be my go-to support from now on. No framing needed! Works out great for the artist and the buyer. 😉 Stay tuned for the finished product and if you feel so inclined, let me know what you think. Peace and love friends.
This is another commission that I finished this week and mailed off yesterday. The work is a 14″ x 19″ watercolor on 140 lb Cold Press Paper. The imagery is from a shot of petroglyphs in Wyoming (one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.). It took a practice painting and some studies to figure out how to complete this one. Eventually I learned that it would take masking fluid and many layers to achieve what I wanted. I really like the way that it turned out and thought I would share! It was fun to work on and now I think I will tackle some compositions from our trip to Portland. 😉
For fun, here is a beautiful shot that my Mom took during one of our visits to Jackson Hole and Dubois, Wyoming….several years ago. I am standing in a field of grass at the Yellowstone National Park.
