Owl at Home, in a Sweater Vest

Brush and ink on board, 5 x 7. Just starting out--will be painting this with matte acrylics today, so I'll post the completed pic later on. I'm trying for a retro look--sort of an insouciant 50's crooner in owl form.

House on Onion Hill, Dusk

Watercolor, 4 x 6. Private collection. This little sketch was painted outside of Grand Junction, CO, looking west toward the Colorado National Monument. It's painted on Arches hot press watercolor paper.

Border detail from a larger watercolor.

Watercolor, detail approx. 2.5" x 8". Private collection. This is the bottom strip of an 8" x 10" painting of St. Anthony of Padua. It illustrates St. Anthony's travels to Portugal from Italy and back again. The complete painting is an ex-voto-type-portrait of the saint holding Jesus as a toddler.

The Ghost on the Steps


Acrylic, 4 x 4.


Kind of a new approach for me. Have not enjoyed acrylic paint in the past, but matte acrylics are appealing all of a sudden--they don't have the plastic look of regular acrylic.
