The Last Buffalo

Acrylic on canvas 36x48"
It's interesting how some things come about. The buffalo and shadow in this painting were laid in as a rough sketch, my intent being to render them in a more finished manner. This initial painting was so appealing that I decided to leave it and see what would happen. Even though this is not the way I usually work it seems to be good for this painting.

" Jumping Rope "

watercolor on paper 9 x 22"
A cool, cloudy late-Summer day here in Denver makes one think of the coming change of seasons. Here's a little reminder of Summer.

Watercolor on paper 15 x 22"
This watercolor was fun, cast shadows and translucent places where the light sneaks in. I like it.

"Canyonlands" watercolor on paper
15 x 22"

One tends to take for granted that which becomes familiar and I am no exception. Having lived all my life in the West I reckon I look to other places to find beauty. It is especially gratifying then, when people from other regions remark on how beautiful the western United States must be. It is doubly so when I can be a small part of that message.

Watercolor on paper 15x22"
I have, on occasion painted flowers and this is a favorite. The light is particularly nice on this piece and having not looked at this image for a bit I am reminded how much fun I had painting this.

One Buffalo

Acrylic on Canvas 24x36"
This piece was fun and I am quite happy with the results. At a recent show one of the attendees commented that even though the Buffalo is lying down and at rest it looks like he could jump up at any moment. I like when people react to my work.

" Study in Blue "

The Aspen tree is an iconic image in Colorado and these lovely trees are painted over and over. I tried to paint an image of Aspens that honoured the tree but was a bit different from the traditional images.
" Study in Blue ", Aspens in the snow. Diptych, each panel measures 18x36". Acrylic on canvas.

I've always painted clouds, as part of paintings but seldom as the subject. I've spent a great part of my life looking at clouds. This piece was just to have a little fun and try something different. I like it.
Acrylic on canvas 18x24"

Sun-up. Eastern Colorado

Acrylic on canvas 36 x 48"
This painting is just about finished, as if being done was a real thing! I'm just tightening the tree up and I can see the clouds need to be 'warmed' up a bit.

I am very excited to be chosen to participate in the Tails Of Painted Cats, an auction/ fund raiser for the Cat Care Society in Denver. Artists from the area submitted proposals and were juried in to this event. The cats will be displayed throughout the Denver metro area in the Spring and Summer and auctioned off later in the year.
My design is titled "Memphis" and is inspired by a cat I knew that would sit amongst the rose bushes and just watch the world go by. He is long gone but I have many good memories associated with that cat and here we are.
