Glenwood Canyon Winter
Spring Snow, Morrison Mountain
This is a very personal wood carving because it is so autobiographical. I play an accordion, the dog singing is a composite of my current dog Tilly, and a greyhound we once had named “Screamin’ Mimi’, the singing dog. The wedge shaped piece of mesquite wood came from my friend Alan Hall, from a tree he cut down at his Arizona home. The shape of the wood at first made me think of the southwestern howling coyote. But then I thought why not make it personal and tell the viewer a little about the artist.
My friend Alan Hall came to town and we got a late start and the sun was setting, there was just a sliver of sunlight shining in the canyon. We had to paint our compositions quickly before we lost the daylight. The pedestrian bridge is the focal point and I was able to capture two people crossing.
After the NCAR Fire
I started this painting in June 2021 and as I like to refer to a painting that is hopelessly flawed, “A dog’s dinner”. It was a real mess and I was seriously thinking about tossing it in the scrap bin. On March 26, 2022 there was a grass fire to the south of the NCAR, (National Center for Atmospheric Research). This fire burned the grassy draw, exactly where I had started the painting nearly a year earlier. The scorched hillside completely changed the color composition and the bare earth better revealed the contours of the rising foothills
This is a painted low plaster relief of my Granddaughter, Honora. If anyone could win a reading medallion, it would be my Grandaughter. She is typically reading three or four books at one time.

I feel very honored to have one sculpture accepted into this National Show. I had an oil painting accepted in this show in 2013. It is wonderful to be recognized in a different medium. I entered three Sculptures, “Amiati Tondo”, “Cock-a-Doodle Do, Time to Wake Up”, and “Western Harmony”. “Western Harmony”:was accepted, which I was extremely happy to show this because it is a very personal piece.

I was one of 84 woodworkers chosen by Boulder County Parks and Open Space, to receive a large log cut from a dead black walnut tree that was over 140 years old. I picked up the log in March 2019 and I spent over 1,000 hours working on my carving. You will be able to see my carving, titled "Cock-a-doodle-do, Time to Wake Up," on page 25 in the exhibition booklet "Walnut Wonders".The Promotional Flyer for the exhibition of Walnut Wonders is on the link: The Exhibit The exhibition booklet of all the pieces are in the link : WalnutWonders (My carving is on page 25).

Three paintings were selected for this show, "Mount Baldy, Grand Lake", an oil, and two acrylic paintings, "Cascade Lake", and "Three Sisters". These three 9 x 12 paintings are what I think of as little gems. They were painted while I was on vacation trips in Colorado and Australia, and they hold fond memories of my travels.
