Inspiration in California

The rich colors in flowers, a deep blue sky, and warm temperatures I’m experiencing in southern California provided the perfect inspiration for this kind of imagery.    This is one of many new shots I’ve added to my available photo resources for future galleries and more.

Chicago Lights and Color


Chicago is one of the most inspirational cities I have experienced. To blend the city lights, amazing architecture , and patterns of reflection with my love for vibrant color seems like a natural coupling for Artistic expression.  This painting is once again a digital dance of color, vibrancy, patterns and textures evolving from a recent photograph.

A Dance of Color

I have always been drawn to color.  It inspires me to produce passionate art and calms my spirit at the same time.  I started a dance of color when I began painting. As I enhanced each image, seeing how far I could push my images and paintings, I found that color energized and magnified the emotional expressiveness, visual impact and clarity of my art.

The strength of the lion symbolizes  passion, tranquility and safety as they are all found for me in the characterization of the lion.
