Came upon a flower stand in Cortona, Italy, and while standing there, noticed this charming alleyway and the laundry hanging in the window with the red towel. Now, we all know what trouble a red towel can cause in the laundry!
Shadows in Tuscany was inspired from a watercolour painting I did in my journal while flying home from Tuscany, Italy. It truly is the land of golden light!
A children’s room in La Jolla, CA, where every room in the house had a view of the ocean except the children’s room. Their view is now of the Serengeti. At night, when the lights go off, all of the animals’ lights light up!
A detailed view of a leopard hanging in the tree above zebras. A mural in a child’s room in La Jolla, CA.
I love how the sweet nectar trails down this bird of paradise and mimics the morning dew hanging on the flower.
This mural took 850 lbs of clay, rolled to a thickness of 1″, carved, and was then cut it into 96 tiles. It can be reproduced in your choice of colors.
Seeing the painted pigs in Seattle, the painted cows in New York, I said, “Dear God, when they do horses…CALL ME!” Then I got word that the Del Mar Foundation was looking for ten artists for ten horses. I submitted several designs and was given two horses of the ten to paint! So, this is Patriot, who was auctioned at the Del Mar Yearling Sale for $8,600.00. It is now displayed in Murrieta, CA, at a thoroughbred retirement ranch.
Ticket To Show was the second horse, and he auctioned as the highest bid horse at $10,000.00! He now resides in a tropical garden in Orange County, CA.
Both Patriot, and Ticket To Show, are life-size.

This is a triptych of birds of paradise. Each section is 12″x12″x2.5″ with 2″ of space between panels.
I just wanted to paint birds of paradise with lots of color. I really liked the colors and shapes of the birds of paradise so much that I wanted to do a series. I am very pleased with the outcome!
This mural, painted on 8′ x 4′ plywood panels, was painted for the stage of the library at North Broadway School in Escondido, CA. Painted in just 5 days, the American Flag is superimposed over the entire mural, and the first verse of “America the Beautiful” is part of it.
