The crab is hopeful of climbing
that slender weed, possibly to
capture dinner, a little bit of fantasy
in the concept.

"Owner's Joy"

I saw this fishing boat in Morro Bay's harbor.
The sun was trying to penetrate the early

"Quiet Backwater"

My sons and I were following this little
stream where I saw this scene. My
composition has the stream entering upper

lower right. The bird is a Troutbird!

"Suspended Animation"

I was working on this painting in the
gallery when a young couple walked in.
Having just been scuba diving in Florida,
they exclaimed "it looks just like that!"
(Vivid imaginations!)
