Koi Fish

    Watching the colorful "Koi Fish" is very soothing to one's soul.

I like watching the fish splash and swim about; swim to

the top of the pond with their mouths wide open, wanting to be fed.  

My inspiration for the artwork I create comes from nature itself.

As I sat in silence, watching, I realize we are all a part of nature, part of

something larger than ourselves. We must be responsible;

for when we ruin nature, we ruin ourselves.

In Japanese culture the koi fish represents strength and perseverance. It is also called

the "warrior's" fish and is sometimes associated with masculinity. 

  Chinese and Korean tradition associate the "Koi Fish" with friendship and love. 

Japanese rice farmers bred the fish for centuries to have color variations they are

know for today.

White-Faced Cow










 While some have been suffering  in extreme weather discontent, I have been using the time to creatively paint up a storm, which is a bad metaphor considering the weather we have had in Illinois.  Each painting reveals a wonderful unique surprise.


  What ever I paint, I back my ideas with hard work and craftsmanship. I give each piece my best.

  All of my artwork is original and have been signed on front and back. After drying, I apply a protected varnish.

Shadows Fall on Snow

I create a wide range of original  paintings in all styles and mediums.

I always try to paint one or two winter landscapes a year.

The shadows on the snow were strong and beautiful yesterday.

I had a impulsive need to create this pastel and acrylic artwork.

My ideas connect with my soul, art reflects something deep in my soul.



                               A small Chick-a-Dee lands on the window sill and watches me work.

                                  I am glad to have the company.

The deep rich blossoms next to the warm vining leaves add contrast and texture 

to my oil painting.
