Venus and Jetstreams
24"x31" pastel

After years of painting the landscape outdoors, I keep being drawn to what is naturally abstract in the physical world, and to the moments when all combined elements between earth and sky produce the most drama and saturated color.

Northern Lights
19"x25" pastel

Northern Lights shimmering in a clear, ultramarine night sky over a winter landscape, surpass all scientific explanation and are, simply, pure magic.

Align
oil on canvas 30"x30"

I watched the planetary alignment of Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Mercury and Saturn almost every night while it was visible on the western horizon, as if it held some secret message within the beauty of its astonishing order.

Valley of Snowmelt

oil on canvas 20"x24"

The wide-open places between snowcapped mountain peaks are so quietly beautiful. Spring snowmelt finds its way here, creating wetlands where birds visit, and clouds have a chance to rest.

Canopy
oil on panel 24"x18"


The hot lava of sunset colors illuminate even the most dark and brooding canopy of cloud cover. I love how the earth holds everything above so powerfully.

Winter Day Dunescape
19"x 25" pastel

January at White Sands, kneeling on the cool powdered gypsum. The winter sun never comes out from behind the clouds long enough to warm my skin.

White Sands Dreamscape
oil on canvas 20"x24"

 

There is a dreamlike solitude I love about sandunes. Sculpted waves of soft white sand have beautiful edges of light. These clean, abstract shapes reveal the shape of the wind.

Sky Theater
oil on canvas 30"x40"

I live for outrageous sunsets! Often it feels as if I am just visiting this planet for the first time, and every illuminated cloud is a revelation.

Running Horse in the Sky
pastel 10"x14"


In the last light on the western horizon, the fringes of clouds are pink with the setting sun. A sliver of moon hangs in the twilight. Floating, shape shifting images appear in the sky, then transform within seconds, and the silhouette of a running horse comes to life, animated by cloud ethers
.

Where Seagulls Stand Still Flying
oil on canvas 24"x20"

In this open high desert valley, clouds move across the sky like solid objects, dripping rain, which will never fall on the earth. Even the seagulls fly in place, wings open, riding on thermals.

Hot Orange Dunes
oil on canvas 16"x20"

In the desert, far south, there is a sprawling mile or so of the most unusual set of sand dunes. They are curvaceous, sharply sculpted and vermilion orange. Their warm vibrancy intensifies the turquoise sky.

Rain Touching Earth
pastel 10"x24"

You can see weather coming from miles away where I live. Walking rain clouds glide across the sky, flirting with the sun-parched mesa. When a curtain of water touches the earth, it feels like witnessing grace.
