I have been carving and painting animals for years, but seem to be gradually retiring from that. Now you'll see more about traveling in my FourWheel truck camper. Other than that I enjoy my 5 acres of meadow, redwoods, firs and willows; birds, deer, bears, and cougars.
After a visit to a friend in Oregon, I was inspired to a painting of her feeding the Canada Geese in her back yard, and included her cats and turtle. There's a river with dunes on the other side. A beautiful place.
It took a lot of sketches and thinking before I was ready to paint.
