Aspen Enclave

This is a 32"x26" painting on canvas of the entrance of an Aspen forest near Ouray, Colorado. I was at this location in early fall a few years back, before the green summer foliage began turning into the brilliantly vibrant orange, yellow and gold hues these trees are so famous and loved for. Some of the trees were starting to show some slight color change, so you knew the change was approaching and would soon be upon them. The breeze through an Aspen forest is one of the most amazing sounds anyone can hope to experience; It's absolutely magical. I hope you enjoy this piece. This will be one of a body of work on exhibit at Bridge Gallery in Tucson, Arizona. Cheers.

Desert Day, Santa Fe

This is a commissioned piece I recently finished. It's an original 52" x 48" acrylic painting on canvas. The scene is of the desert landscape west of Santa Fe with the Sangre de Cristo mountain range in the background. The desert outside of Santa Fe is a magical landscape filled with color and textures under some of the most beautiful skies one could hope to live under. Juniper, sagebrush, cacti, Rocky Mountains and the high desert combine to make for some of the most amazing scenery in the southwest. Hope you enjoy.
