Gallery Wrap 24 x 24″

Using my favorite colors, I added texture and movement with a palette knife until a feeling of looking down at the land and water patterns from above became apparent. I continued to define my impression of watching the earth pass below on a long, cross country flight.
Palo Verde in Sunlight
Gallery Wrap 12 x 36″
This tall, narrow canvas lent itself to the wonderful Palo Verde trees that I loved from Arizona and Marfa Texas. There is a bit of gauze fabric to give texture to the tree branches. I then played with sunlight and shadow in somewhat fanciful colors. Purple shadows for contrast with sunlight is a favorite for me.
Glacier Ice #7
Gallery Wrap 20 x 20″

Water on the Glacier, Jasper
Gallery Wrap 30 x 40
Acrylic on Canvas

Framed 14 x 20
