I love working from life, but reality is just a jumping-off point. I start by paring a thing down to its structure, then respond to its spirit with energized color and pattern. Each new painting is an exciting, uncharted journey!

Diablo Between Storms

A rare chilly day in East Contra Costa County, with storm clouds hovering around Mt. Diablo. Snow from the night before was melting before my eyes as I painted this view from my studio window!

Vaqueros Spring

Los Vaqueros Watershed is a beautiful, peaceful valley near Brentwood in Northern California. On this early Spring day the terrain glowed with iridescent greens while icy blue hints of Winter still lingered in the shadows.
