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.

Highland Harmony


February 2016

I go to the mountains regularly. Offering up amazing views and beautiful fresh air, I come alive in all my senses and breathe deep of the Majesty of God’s creation. I never cease to be amazed at the scale. No photograph or painting seems to capture the sheer magnitude of each peak much less the mass of them all together. This particular day of sightseeing, driving along miles of split rail fence and the entrance to Ralph Lauren’s Double RL ranch, I couldn’t take my eyes off the peaks ! Towering over the valley in front of me in the soft backlit sunlight, the landscape before me was mesmerizing. Patches of clouds, sunshine and shadows floating across the land were so internally moving, all I could say was “Wow!” over and over. I want you to feel the magnitude of the Rockies and the Harmony the light and air brought to this ideal setting as I changed nothing. I simply painted, took pictures, and breathed deep. I did wish for a heard of elk to come by - so maybe they did later - but I added them to complete the joy and the wonder of Highland Harmony.
