Echoes of Light

Echoes of Light

Edition of 50 | 40″ x 30″ | Giclee As is true of some of my favorite paintings, this scene was found completely by accident. There is no way that I could have timed the perfect colors in the trees, shadows on the lower part of the tree and foreground so that the sunlit top of the tree would be glowing and reflecting in the still water below.

Edition of 50 | 32″ x 64″ | Giclee This is a pristine trout fishing stream in western Colorado. I love walking through the wait-deep grass, you feel like you are swimming in it and it engulfs you. This is a very subtle painting that is all about how the rising sun of morning just licks the top of the grass and bushes.
