Woman Eating Ice Cream

                            "Girl Eating Ice Cream-Mastercopy" oil on canvas 18"x36"

This is a Wayne Tiebauld mastercopy I did because I love his use of color. He is probably known best for his pastel cityscapes of San Francisco, and hs still lifes of  pie's, pastries, and landscapes. His oil paintings of figures aren't well known but to me they are just as visually striking as any other he has done.

Slide Sister

                                                                  "Slide Sister"
                                                             15"x18" oil on canvas
This is another of my (hodge podge) paintings. I like doing this sort of collage painting because I think that's sort of how thoughts materialize. They come quickly and sometimes without any reason. I just try and hold onto them a little longer before they get lost in the hard drive. 

Solar Convergence

This was taken from my back deck in Santa Cruz. Gotta love those December sunsets.

Naked Life

Thick oil paintings painted pretty loosely. These aren't my favorite, but people seem to like em. Maybe you will too?
