Still Life


Small Jewels




"Quirky" just won the 1st place abstract award at Sierra Watercolor Society judged show! The judge was Birgit O'Connor and she commented: "Very well done, bold and free flowing. Good color sense."

I appreciate Birgit's comments and am pleased with being awarded this honor. The piece is on display (and for sale) at the Sparks Heritage Museum on Victorian Street until October 2nd. The show reception is on September 9th from 2 to 4.


Circle of Life I

This is one of two watercolors on the Circle of Life theme. It is in my one person show at Artsy Fartsy Gallery at 405 North Nevada Street in Carson City. This painting was done with 100 strokes of the brush. It is 12x12, framed and sells for $200. Contact me at if you are interested.


Abstract Iris

I'm on my way to Artsy Fartsy Gallery to take 43 paintings for my show "Postcards from the Universe". This is one of the paintings that will be featured. The reception for the show is August 17th from 4 to 7:30. The gallery is at 405 North Nevada Street in Carson City. To get there, take Carson Boulevard to Telegraph Avenue (across from The Nugget), turn right, then right again on Nevada Street. The gallery is the second house on the right.


Truckee Bridge

On these hot summer days, people raft, swim and paddle in the Truckee River where it runs through the middle of Reno. This is just how the river looks. I have painted it multiple times and sold all except this painting of the river. It is available this month for a special price of $700 for anyone looking at this website. (It is regularly $1200). It is 24x36 painted with acrylic on canvas and beautifully framed. If you are interested in owning this image of a Reno icon, contact me at and say that you saw it on my website and would like the special price.


Life is Short

  1. "Life is Short" is based on a quote from Goethe's "Faust"... "Life is short, art is long". However, Goethe stole the phrase from Hippocrates, who said "Art is long, life is short." It is a quote that has been used and built on by many authors. My building on it is my painting. I am interpreting the saying in visual form. This piece will be on display and for sale at the Reno Open Studios Show this Saturday at McKinley Park in Reno. The park is located at 925 Riverside Drive. The show will start at 9:00 and end at 5pm. Come by and say hello!
