“ROUGH WATERS” 24″ x 36″ Original Oil On Canvas

The ocean inspires me everyday. It is where I grew up and still feel such a sense of peace when walking along the beach. It never ceases to amaze me, all of the different colors of the ocean on any given day. Oil On Canvas

Baby Koala and Mom

My little baby Koala and his Mom are completed, and will be glazed Wednesday.  Ready to ship by next Tuesday.  This painting is very colorful and brilliant.  I wanted to convey the colors of the Eucalyptus tree.  In Southern California there are thousands of Eucalyptus trees, and if you have ever stood under one, you might have seen purple, green and violet colors in the leaves.  The bark is facinating the way it swirls and sheds in the summer.

The baby Koala lives in it’s mother’s pouch for five months and is blind when it is born.  Koalas live to be around 20 years old, and primarily live on the East  Coast of Australia.   I hope you enjoy…This painting is currently available for bid on Ebay.  Click on the photo to link to the auction.

Palm Tree

I’m a day late at this post, but nevertheless, it was a difficult decision yesterday on which painting to do.  It was a toss up between my lemon tree and my palm tree.  As you can see the palm tree won.  I’ve been wanting to paint this tree for a long time.  It started out as a tiny little tree and has grown very quickly over the years.  I plan on doing a video of this painting.  It is fun and fearless to approach.  You don’t have to use your left brain at all, and frankly, with all that is going on in the world, we need a break from our left lobes!  Thinking and creating  from the right side of your brain, is like a mental mediation, and good for the soul.

I am also very inpsired today, because I see my colorful sunflower painting is currently being bid on Ebay.  If you are interested, there are two days left.  One thing for sure, selling a painting for an artist is the greatest motivator to paint.  So tomorrow, watch out lemon tree! In the meantime, if you are interested in this painting, you can click on it and it will take you to the Ebay auction..  Peace and Prayers…


New painting completed today..16″ x 20″..called “Daydreaming”  I wondered when I was painting this pelican, if he ever had daydreams about being an Eagle!  This painting is painted my new pallette of colors, more vivid, and much more risky!    Enjoy!
