Tree, Avery Island is a 11" x 14" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. It portrays a beautiful tree that I saw on Avery Island, Louisiana. Avery Island, located just a few miles from New Iberia, is home to the plant which makes Tabasco Hot Sauce, and even better, a huge beautifully kept park. Decades ago, the family that owns the island established a nesting refuge for the endangered snowy egret. Every spring, thousands of the birds congregate on the island to raise their young. It is an incredible sight. It is available for $300 plus shipping.

"Fairhope Marina" is a 9" x 12" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. I painted this marina in Fairhope, Alabama just weeks before Hurricane Ivan rolled through in the fall of 2004. The marina was hit very hard, and no longer resembles the painting. I'm glad that I was there before its destruction. It is available for $260 plus shipping. PAINTING SOLD.

"Spring on Sandy Bayou" is a 24" x 8" acrylic painting on gallery wrap canvas. This is a bayou near my home, and on this spring day the normally "black water" of the bayou was reflecting the intense blue of the sky. Coastal Mississippi is incredibly beautiful in the spring, and I was able to capture that beauty in this painting. It is available for $430 plus shipping.

Running Belgians I is a 25" x 17" framed acrylic painting on board. Several years ago I visited a breeding farm for these magnificent animals, and was astounded by their mass and weight. I wanted to capture their grace as well as their form. It is available for $660 plus shipping.

Tiger Lilies is a 9" x 12" acrylic painting on board. I painted this when I was living in a small, mom-and-pop motel in Aberdeen, South Dakota. It was early spring in the Northern Plains, and I went out one day in the wind and sleet and found a pot of blooming lilies at the nursery. I set them up in the room, and did several different paintings before the flowers wilted. I am especially attracted to tiger lilies because they seem so strong and vibrant, just bursting with color and energy. It is available for $260 plus shipping.
