This is one of my larger top paintings.  I found this top at an outdoor flea market recently.  To do the painting I placed the top on a large mirror to achieve the reflection.

Sky Ride Inn

Click to Bid,  16 by 20 inches,  Acrylic on acid free illustration board

This painting depicts a marquee in a Mississippi River town.  On my first visit many years ago I ordered the catfish plate.  The waitress asked if I preferred river catfish or farm raised.  I then knew that they were serious about the fish they served.  The business no longer exists, and the marquee has long since been removed. 

I painted this piece several years ago but couldn’t say that I was totally happy with it.  So, I decided to “go in” a repaint parts of the painting.  I can now say that I’m completely satisfied with the painting.

While on vacation I happened on these large display figures celebrating the "Day of the Dead."
Their reflective nature seemed to call me to do a painting of them.

Iris with Colorful Abstract

Click to Bid,  8 by 10 inches,  Mixed Media on acid free illustration board
We recently made a road trip to the Botanical Gardens in St. Louis Missouri.  The light was perfect for floral photography.  This iris painting is based on some of those photos.  I used a scrape book printing block to apply the black lines in the background.
