'Tidal Treasures'

There is nothing that provokes the animation
of the human spirit and imagination like
hot sun, warm sand and a really low tide...

'Summer Heat'

A painting done one hot morning back in July,
on the trail above Swan Lake.
These Weeping willows caught my eye. 
They hide and shade a magical pool 
on a creek that feeds the lake.
 Their drooping, sunlit, frond like 
branches had my hand moving as if 
painting before I even set up.
