Eldorado Canyon

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, 2022

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 to the south, 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.

Los Animas Way, Santa Fe

Lisa Louie purchased this painting for her husband Paul. Paul grew up in Santa Fe and he told me that he and his friends would ride their bicycles on the hilly roads in this historic town. I could imagine he and his friends coasting their bikes down this fun serpentine road on a sunny day.

Poppi Platypus (side view)

I carved this for my Granddaughter Clare, she calls me Poppi. Clare Martin wrote this clever poem about Platypuses.

A platypus looks like a beaver and a duck,
So it's just your luck,
If you see one in the wild!
They are very strange animals.
Platypuses lay eggs but they are mammals!
And on the back of their ankles,
The males have a venomous tooth!
None live in a telephone booth
But most live in Australia.
While they might not wear lots of regalia,
Platypuses have intelligent minds,
And all are one of a kind!

Miller Farm, Tractors

Cathy and I went to Miller farm with our daughter Maura and her six kids to glean for vegetables from the Miller's field. I didn't want to take the hayride to the fields so I set up my easel on the leeward side of an out building. It would have been nice if instead of tractors there was a line of horses. It was a simple joy to make this little painting.

2020 Walnut Wonders Exhibit, The Great Frame Up Gallery, 430 Main St. Longmont, CO 2020-11-14 thru 2020-12-30

due to the covid19 virus there will be no opening reception.

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.

Nativity Days Art Show, Nativity of our Lord Church, 900 W. Midway Ave, Broomfield2018-08-15 thru 2018-08-20

Friday, August 17, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - Opening reception for the third annual "Nativity Days Art Show".

Seventeen wood carvings are being shown in the 2018 "Nativity Days" Art show. The carvings represent probably 25 years of carving. They were carved almost entirely during my lunch breaks in the several offices that I worked throughout my working career. I've never had a chance to show these altogether at one place and I thought this would be the perfect venue for this retrospective. I had to ask some of my collectors to loan their pieces to me for this short show.
