This is my painting Erosion that I created both for my environmental series, and for the St. Cloud Paramount ‘s “Planet Earth” juried art show. It’s a 24″ x 36″ painting done in acrylic on canvas. My statement on this painting: I’m concerned about the earth’s environment, pollution and climate change. I worry about the […]
This is the beautiful beach in Costa Rica at Punta Uva, a pristine place in the southeast of the country. Brief storms are frequent here, which explains the dramatic sky, and the swimmers are unconcerned because the water is so wonderful and warm. An expressive, contemporary, and semi-realistic painting that will remind you of your […]

Sometimes, like in this painting, you might be surprised at what pops up. This is also an example of deliberately created artwork […]

EL Pilar is a Mayan ruins site in North Western Belize (part of it looks over Guatemala) and this watercolor is a painting of a small area of it. The clearing was interesting because the sun created palm shadows on the ground. The ruins themselves were not as interesting as in other areas of Belize […]
Tropical View is a watercolor view from a cabana porch in Belize. Belize is another country where I took hundreds of photos, and where I get a lot of my inspiration from. This scene was taken from the back porch, which looked directly through the cabana next door. There are no screens on the windows […]
