"Endless"

My two year old is a good sounding board for these abstract landscapes. If she says "outside, trees, moon!" I know I have just enough information in the painting to make things discernible, yet abstract and impressionistic.
The elements in this painting appear to have no beginning or end. Lightly textured, scumbled layers of paint.

"A Winter Song"

I've been snapping photos of the Saskatchewan countryside all winter. The photo for this painting was taken west of Saskatoon. The red behind the trees were some sort of dogwood or cotoneasters. I exaggerated them for an interesting effect in an otherwise gray and gloomy winter landscape. Thick impasto snow!  There's an Agalloch song in this painting somewhere...

"Sophisticated Koi"

My koi paintings were featured in the 2015 annual issue of USA Ponds and Water Gardens magazine. They are one of my favorite subjects to paint! I usually incorporate a lot of color, but this time I thought it would be fun to keep it simple - black, gray, red, white - the effect exudes bold sophistication.
