Far away places…


I enjoy the wonder of  discovering and experiencing something new, something unique that gets me in the mood to paint. It happens all the time as I travel to different places and around the world seeing  these  hidden treasures and beauty. It’s always an adventure.


At times it’s not just the scenery, it’s a moment that grabs me and is held in memory in an unforgettable way.

It can be an old man sitting on a rock by the lake drinking his first cup of coffee in the morning…

A young girl from a far away country dressed in colorful traditional attire carrying a basket full of flowers walking down the street.

A beautiful evening  sky filled with many small birds all heading in one direction into an explosion of color.

The rain falling on a sunny day.


When I paint for someone.. I want it to have that memory of an unforgettable moment in time. Something kept close at heart and treasured forever.
