Autumn Shadows_edited.jpg

"Fall Shadows" - There are fall colors in Arizona. The most brilliant tend to be be in the higher elevations near Pinetop and Greer. There the quakies, or aspen, are brilliant against the giant pines. The colors against the moving sun and thin air create colors sometimes difficult to imagine. As the leaves fall the ground beneath takes on bold color and deeper, shadow patterns emerge in the dense forest. In the winter they are often dusted with snow. It's like they are taking a nap.

A Morning Kiss_edited.jpg

A Morning Kiss.  Near the edge of the White Mountains and nestled in the small community of Greer are old, sometimes nearly forgotten homestead. Many are nestled up against the hills perhaps as a protection from the heavy snow that often falls in the Arizona High Country. Sometimes when the sun rises and just the right time, and right time of the year, it seems to kiss the ground with a light.  This large painting is 30" x 30" on gallery wrapped canvas offered at $2395.

"Autumn Glow" -  The most brilliant fall colors tend to be be in the higher elevations near Pinetop and Greer, although they can be nearly anywhere when the sun turns the sky that special yellow that seems to be embossed in gold. The colors against the moving sun and thin air create colors sometimes difficult to imagine. The meadows turn with the season creating their own dressing of fall color. Autumn promises that it is time to rest. This 36 x 36 painting is offered at $3350 at The Finer Arts Gallery in Cave Creek, 6137 Cave Creek Road, 85331

"Mystery Behind the Mesa" IWhen you look off into the desert as the sun sets, it may seem Mother Nature is hiding a secret beyond the craggy surfaced mesa. Add the colors of the brilliant skies with swirling clouds, one can only wonder if  Mother Nature only appears to create mystery or if there is truly a mystery beyond. This 24 x 24 is available in my studio $2200.

You Can Leave Now.jpg

You Can Leave Now - Long summers in Arizona, especially those where the annual Monsoons appear to be in hiding, make for the time when we wish for the storms to push the desert heat into a memory. One record after another, and clouds teasing with false promises of rain, so "yes" the summer can leave now. This 20 x 20 gallery wrapped canvas is framed and offered  $1,800.

Riding the Winds of Changing_edited.jpg

Riding the Winds of Change - The rolling meadows to the north and west of Phoenix's Valley of the Sun are native glass meadows that  change with each season and with the summer rains.  In the Fall and before Arizona's gentle Winters arrive, the migratory birds ride the winds seeking a warmer climate. In the late Spring the  flights change as the feathered ones fly North for cooler temperatures. There is always change and how we address it or Ride the Winds, is important to our well being much like the birds.  This large painting is 40" x 40" on gallery wrapped canvas offered at SOLD

It is a 40 x 40 x 2 in splined canvas in acrylic with painted edges.    SOLD

Ghostly Superstitions - To the east of Phoenix's Valley of the Sun is a 160,000 acre range that extends that miles and is the keeper of mysteries and legends. One belief of some Apaches is the hole that leads down to the lower world, or Hell, is located within the mountains. It is said that the winds that blow from the hole are those that cause severe Arizona dust storms. Another intriguing legend surrounds the  Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. It was a "mother-lode" a mine discovered by Jacob Waltz, who revealed its location on his death bed.  While there are claims that some have located the mine, others believe it has never been discovered which still leads to more treasure hunters searching for the legendary mine. The lore and history are said explained with displays in the Superstition Mountain  Museum on the Apache Trail. The hiking of the1939  federally designated wilderness area extends across three Arizona counties, Maricopa, Pinal and Gila. This large painting is 40" x 60" on gallery wrapped canvas  SOLD.
"Dressed In Red" is also on display at the Cardinal Football Stadium in Peoria, AZ within the Executive Suites. These two paintings and one other, are part of my commission for the stadium. "GO CARDS"
