Fruits and Veggies 30" x 54" SOLD

I was commissioned to paint this uncharacteristic pastel painting of fruits and veggies! It certainly was a challenge, a thrill, and a different sort of landscape. Finally, I got to use the most intense colors in my collection of pastel sticks!!

End of the Road, 6 x 9 in. $165

This little painting went remarkably fast! I must be getting the hang of this. Anyway, this scene was near Los Alamos this past winter. I love painting snow because almost none of it is really white and I can work with blues, pinks, purples and yellows that I don't normally work with.

Sun Rays Sedona 6"x9" $165

This little painting is inspired by the last of the sun's rays touching the red rocks and green valley in Sedona a few weeks ago. I wish I could describe the sounds, the feel of the air, and the grandness of the views in all directions! What a beautiful place.

Rocky Start to the Morning 6x9in $165 framed

This is a little painting I created from a morning hike in the Sandia mountain foothills. The previous day's storm was clearing and there were spectacular scenes in all directions. I love the way the rocks are piled up in these mountains! Sometimes it's a puzzle how some of the rocks look like they should fall over with the slightest breeze, but they never do.

Foothills Fairyland 13 x 18in SOLD

Last Friday morning I was prepared to dash out the door in anticipation of the latest storm breaking up. I had a hunch the skies would open up and the scenery would be dramatic. I went on a hike in the foothills near me and wasn't disappointed. This is the first of what could be several paintings from that one morning!

Swiss Village 12x8in Unframed

Wow, the memories flooded back making this painting. There were so many scenes like this on the hikes in Switzerland this past fall. After months of being back, I am starting to think it couldn't have been THAT beautiful, but it was.

The Saddle 6x9in. $165 framed

This little painting is from an area I painted before (on the road heading towards Los Alamos). I think people who drive it daily don't consider it a scenic route, but I can't think of a spot along this road that isn't scenic!
