Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

"Yucca" (18 x 24)

The yucca were in full bloom a couple of weeks ago.  Saw these beauties while driving through Western Nebraska on our way up to the Black Hills.  Think they are one of the most beautiful prairie wild flowers.  Finished this painting this morning.

Think I'll have Gary build a floating frame for this out of weathered barn wood.
