The light splash of water was the only sound breaking the silence as we loaded our gear before sunrise at the dock.  The boat sputtering toward the channel as we made our way to the big lake.  As we set up our equipment, the sun was a glowing orange as began to appear.  I ate my doughnut watching it rise and waiting to snag a rainbow trout.  The boat rocking in the gentle breeze.

This piece would look best in a space that is red, dark orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, beige, or wood

Our bikes race up and down the gentle hills of Provence.  Everything has a distinct texture, the colors are vibrant, and the perfume in the air is intoxicating.  And every twisting road we turn down has countless rows of purple and blue lavender.  The heat of the Mediterranean sun presses against our backs as we pedal back to the village of Sault.  I'll never forget the fields of France.

This painting would look best in a space that is light red, orange, yellow, green, blue, light purple, black, white, beige, or wood

Blue and Green Birch Forest

Blue and Green Birch Forest, 2016
Acrylic and ink on canvas board

10% OFF with coupon code JOINTHEFUN

Birch trees have always been a meditative source for me. Growing up, there was one outside my window that I would look at while daydreaming. And, when I needed to get away from the world I went to a grove of Birch trees to find refuge. I’ve always found the unique and nearly useless white tree interesting.

This painting would look best in a small bright space that seems bare.  It would also compliment a space that is yellow, orange, navy blue, purple, red, dark green, beige, white, black, or wood.

This is the place to relax.  We went around to the various local vineyards to select the perfect wine for this evening.  Obviously, it was a Riesling.  Then we took the boat to our favorite spot in the lake to enjoy this moment.  When the sun disappears behind the hills and the last bit of sunlight explodes into the sky.

This painting would look best in a space that is red, yellow, orange, green, dark blue, purple, black, white, beige, or wood.

I have stayed here for several days.  Alone in the wilderness with only the things I can carry in my backpack.  I've been rationing my food and water to extend my time here.  There's an intensity to the evening sun that is counter-balanced by the darkness of the soil.  A delicate harmony to everything.

This piece would work in a space that is red, burnt orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, white, neutral beige, or wood.
