Mother's Tulips

Mother's Tulips

At 100 years of age, my mother no longer paints. But I wanted to honor her with this watercolor piece she painted many years ago. I have doctored it up with lots of textures and blends, but it's her artistry that makes the piece shine.

New Orleans' Bar Stools

New Orleans' Bar Stools

For me, this scene typifies the color and the party atmosphere that can be found in so many of the bars and clubs in the French Quarter of the Big Easy (although the stools are usually filled with somewhat inebriated patrons!).

Sketchbook

Budapest is a unique blend of several styles of architecture, with the old and historic often side by side with the new and the modern. It's a city I fell in love with, and for me Budapest's architectural paradise was the inspiration I needed to create this piece highlighting some of the photos shot...
