"Elk Country Sunset"
oil on masonite, 9x12"

Here is a winter scene done from on-location stetches and memory to usher in the Holiday Season. Thoughts of a traditional snowy Christmas, complete with elk and deer in the woods, fill the air and begged for painting.

Shaping the Italian Landscape


"Enzo Sunflower Farm"

The focus of this painting was that strong shapes and color would give way to the hint of sunflowers.
