"Sunset Stroll Revisited" is a 16" x 12" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. While I was living in the small community of Yarnell, Arizona, one of my favorite activities was to walk in the wild country behind the house. Late afternoon was the best time, and I tried to capture the strength of that late afternoon sun in the hills of Yavapai. It is available for $340 plus shipping.
"Mimosa at Buccaneer" is a 16" x 8" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. Just down the beach from me is Buccaneer State Park, a beautiful park that hosts many visitors all year round. I see this wild part of the beach every day, as I drive to and from work. It is available for $300 plus shipping.
"Moored Shrimp Boats" is a 14" x 18" framed acrylic painting on board. With several marinas within half an hour of my home, I have no trouble finding scenes to paint. While the pleasure and sailing boats have their own beauty, I far prefer the shrimp boats, with all their character and charm. It is available for $400 plus shipping.

"The Path to the Bayou" is a 14" x 11" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. This is a painting of the path that goes down to Cairo's Bayou. The vividness of the early spring grass and intense early morning light combined to create a striking composition. It is available for $300 plus shipping.

In December 2003, I did a series of graphite nudes for a show in Bay St. Louis. The drawings were all small, approximately 3" x 4". I used photographs for my inspiration; some of mine and some of other photographers. The images presented here are giclee prints of the drawings. I chose to post the sepiatone versions; prints in the original color are also available, and a few of the originals have not yet been sold. Email me for a list of what is available.

"Totem" is a mixed media construction which includes trade cloth, burlap, turtle shell, pottery shards, old brass thimbles, Indian head pennies, feather, and beads of glass, turquoise and amber. Much of the inspiration for this piece comes from the Lakota culture of the Northern Plains. The turtle symbolized long life for the Lakota, and and the trade cloth, thimbles, and beads were important elements in the people's economic well being in the 1800s. It features a removable neckpiece for personal adornment.
