This was an award winning portrait.I want my work to capture the personality and soul of my subject, more than just an image. I good work of art makes a connection with the viewer.
My interests and abilities cover a broad range as shown in my recent "Airhead" series of nonsensical cartoons reminiscent of the 70's underground comix. Most all of my work is scanned and high resolution prints on watercolor paper are available in a verity of sizes.
My cartoon image to the left is not a good example of photorealism, but the photo on the right was used to paint the watercolor above.
From photorealism to fantasy, my images often catch and hold the viewer's eye as he or she looks closer and deeper for more detail and more meaning.
I am a full time commissioned artist working for clients in the Southwest and across the country. My work is displayed in a variety of venues in Portland, Oregon, Vancouver, Washington, Fredericksburg, Texas. Over a hundred of my watercolors hang in the homes and businesses of satisfied clients across the United States. I work primarily from photos that I take of my subjects or photos supplied by my clients. Challenge me to exceed your expectations.
Guys like cars. Guys would rather
have a painting of their car than a
painting of themselves. Whether it's
a rusted out pickup in the woods or
a finished show car, cars make great

Composition, balance and lighting are crucial factors in an image. The brightness and variety keep the eye moving and involved.
Exceeding his client's expectations is a continuous goal. This client's husband is a P-51 pilot and this painting was a birthday surprise. The airplane seems to fly off the paper in this dramatic composition. You can almost hear the engine and smell the avgas and Castrol.
