"Trees...from the ground up" was just completed in July 2017. I walk my dogs in the Deerfield Township Park across the lake from me and the trees are so majestic. I just had to paint them. This painting was complicated and took a while. It is 49 x 39. 

Best of Show Winner at Kaleidoscope 2017, sponsored by the Brighton Art Guild.

I began this painting...trying to communicate deep thoughts and feelings which we all have. I am interested in doing some paintings which communicate through the pose what the person is thinking or feeling.

It was a lot of fun for me to put 14 Fall paintings together for my current show at the Brighton Chamber of Commerce. Fall is my favorite time of the year, with the crisp smell of leaves, cooler temperatures and the ever changing color display outside.
