Savannah, River Street

February 2014

Perfectly nestled along the Savannah River bank is one of my favorite places in the world, River Street. It possesses a charm and beauty that is hard to mimic. Quaint antique shops and restaurants line the cobblestone filled streets which hold enough to fill an adventure filled day with beauty and wonderment. My family often enjoys a day here on the Georgia Queen Riverboat. Once the sun sets, we find our favorite restaurant to end an awe inspiring day in Savannah. I always feel an overwhelming sense of inspiration as I gaze into the sunset and watch as the riverboats paddle majestically across the water, as the old street car makes its way down the cobblestone streets. This scene paints a perfect picture of old southern charm.

Villa Balbianello

September 2015

On an early morning boat ride across the beautiful Lake Como, one can gaze and become mesmerized at the tantalizing Alps of Switzerland. A vision which is filled with awe, yet feel so out of reach. They offer an amazing view as they tower over the lake, like a titan guarding its hidden treasure. The chilly morning breeze blowing down from the snow filled peaks brings me away from this momentary lapse and back to the beauty before me.

As the boat creeps across the lake, one can catch sight of an awe inspiring sight; located on the western shore of Lake Como lays the most breathtaking villa of them all, Villa Balbianello. Its luscious gardens offer a fresh bounty of colors which bring the villa to life. What makes this fantastic structure stand out is not only its garden, but also the ancient statues and the walls of the villa covered with old wisterias and ivy, giving this gorgeous villa a feeling of a time long past. As the day passes, one cannot help but remember the inspiring beauty and the bountiful palette of colors during a romantic evening on Lake Como. I only hope these inspirations are caught on canvas and capture the beauty of the old Villa Balbianello.

Christmas Homecoming

November 2015

My wife and I lounge on the porch, overlooking our family enjoying the Christmas holiday. In this precious Christmas memory, my family has gathered from all over to enjoy the holidays together. My son and his wife, Joshua and Lauren, are crossing the bridge to light the neighborhood tree. The beautiful lights are vibrant with holiday cheer, reminding us that we are all together on this tranquil night. As the snow falls and gathers in a brilliant sheen of white; my other son, Nathan, and his dog pull a snow sled, looking for a hill to sleigh down Noticing the developing snow, our daughter, Kayla, runs out to build a magnificent snowman. As the holidays approach and I reminisce on these treasured memories, I realize anew just how blessed I am and become excited at the prospect of the new memories to come. I invite you to come and partake in a wonderful Christmas Homecoming with my family in this memory on canvas. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
