"Dinner Time"

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
morning fog. I love
to paint rust!

"Quiet Backwater"

My sons and I were
following this little
stream where I saw this
scene. My composition
has the stream entering
upper left and wending
its way through the
rocks 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!)
