    The stillness in the mountains is different from where I live along the coast of Texas. I’ve gone days without feeling a breeze or the stirring of wind. Some mornings, the frost on the trees catches the light and highlights all the intricate details of the branches as they are backlit by a rising sun. It’s so thrilling to see it and capture it with my camera. Compiling several photos from the area around our cabin in the mountains of Colorado, I imagined this grand herd of elk coming into the clearing next to the river and put it all together in Morning Silence. Their warm bodies and breath are creating a steamy glow around them while they meander through yesterday’s snow looking for something to nibble on. While it is a harsh environment, these magnificent animals survive the conditions with grace and majesty and will thrill the soul on a chance encounter in the wild of the mountains.

    September 2016

    In my first wolf painting “Valley of Shadows,” I wanted to depict how we can lie down in the midst of danger and rest because we are being watched over by God. In my new painting, “Three Amigos,” I want us to see past what appears dangerous and look in their eyes.The first looks hungry, the second looks worried and the third looks defensive. Sometimes we forget our battle is not against flesh and blood.We need to look past the “problems” that people pose in front of us and see the longing and emptiness that cause this defensiveness or the attacks on us. Everyone standing before us has a past and a history – they have turned out the way they are because of it, and they just need some love.They, too, need to be a part of something for good.
