Do you remember the Apollo missions? The day Armstrong stepped on the moon? Clear as a bell - I do, and those days were full of possibilities. We can get back there. “Manifesto series: Europe, Africa and the other side of the world.”
12 X 12”, unframed on canvas mounted on wood frame; acrylic, oil, for sal
New release in the Manifesto Series; a response to over-nationalism. Please see additional information here:
Thank you for your attention!
Thank you profusely to the designer who purchased a print from Fine Art America.
A bit of background: Driving along Buck Mountain road as the sun was starting to head down, I pulled off the road as I had to get this sight down. The most stunning view of the day - the vines, the mist in the Blue Ridge mountain valley's, the way the sun blasted the foliage. No wonder I love this place - this landscape view is about five minutes from my house and has brought me great peace and happiness.

So grateful to the French collector! This piece is from the Manifesto Series. I am deeply moved by natural earth forces, and I started this series with a new approach to applying fluid paint to landscapes. It’s become more entrenched then that, with a look at the primordial forces beneath the mountains, trees and oceans. It’s a consideration of the fact that humans can’t control everything, but that we can affect the earth in a profound way.

Have a reflective day.
Getting a good start on a new earth as a part of the Manifesto series. Trying some new flow medium and viscosities. These paintings are so freeing and unpredictable - and that’s a good thing.
18X14.75” print and frame sold to a wonderful collector from the beautiful Charlottesville, VA. I am forever grateful to the people who enjoy my art enough to purchase it!

The way the mist would flow in from the Pacific, up the dunes and over the hills set such a mood. This cove had fighting sea lions and hundreds of species of birds that I couldn't begin to identify. Whenever I have a bad day (today, unfortunately) this is where my mind goes.
Very excited to take part in this tour! If you have a chance, come by - I’ll have originals, prints, oils, acrylics, drawings, etc.!
Finally, I’m home again! Spring is springing and I’ve been getting some painting and some gardening done, so yeah! Often while on Anna Marie island I would plein air paint the sunsets, which were spectacular. I’m thoroughly enjoying simplifying the shapes and colors. This will be posted for sale soon.
One of the first sunny days I landed in St. Augustine, I grabbed my easel and painted this noble guard. There are four lions guarding the bridge; they’re made of imported Carerra marble and are stunning in their majesty. This sketch took about two hours.
This lion is in the oldest city in the U.S., St. Augustine, Florida. I just loved the idea of them (there are two matching statues). They’re made of Carrera marble, and elegantly guard the Matanzas river near downtown. The city began in 1565! No, really. This is 12X12” on canvas. This is a work in progress, painted plein air.
A day spent painting at the beach. Those two palms have been friends several times this month; I love the way they’re bent in the wind yet have the best view around. I ended up talking to people who stopped all day long. My faith in humanity is restored. Everyone, to a person, was so kind, funny and interesting. Canadians, New Jersey folk, midwesterners - not a harsh word, and even an offer to purchase. But I can’t yet, I’m not finished. 12X12”, mixed media on archival board.
This is a work in progress; I still want to abstract the background a lot more. Painting here was interesting - there’s the Bridge Street Inn Bar right around the corner, so some rather happy patrons stopped by to talk as I painted. It’s a lovely spot as the pelicans dived around me and boats moved in and out of the harbor.
There is so much life going on at the beach. I’m surrounded by sun bathers, dune buggies, bicyclists and hikers. Everyone is happy, including me. This mixed media painting is 12X12” on archival board.
When I set up this morning it was the shadows and contrast that intrigued me. I’ve painted enough palms in the last few weeks to finally have the hang of their shapes and fronds. That’s the Gulf of Mexico beyond the old pier, where it’s too dangerous to swim due to the riptides. 12X12” on archival board.
Recently finished this piece looking down towards Asheville from the eastern mountains. A stunning evening as the lights popped out. 12X16’ on Canson canvas board.
I wish I knew enough about palms to guess how old these two are. They’ve (obviously) bent in the wind and are guarding the inlet into Sarasota Bay. The Bay, I recently learned, is only about four feet deep and full of grasslands and wildlife.
I am so grateful to the collector of this work from my Manifesto Series, entitled “"Manifesto 5.0: The Gulf, Sarasota" which is going to a new home in California. To view additional original art, please visit:

Happy Holidays to all.
Thank you to the collector of this piece, painted live along Skyline Drive in the Piedmont Area of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Shenandoah National Park. Made me feel like an angel as the warm summer breezes overcame my easel and me. I loved the patterns; the repetition of shapes and most of all, the color of these mountains. See the sheep cloud to the upper right? My eye finally found him after I thought I was done, but he's welcome to stay.
