A Midnight's Respite
A Midnight's RespiteThis limited palette piece was commissioned by a lover of unicorns and all things fantasy.  The challenge came in trying to present these creatures in as realistic a way as possible.  Keen eyed viewers might spot a sparrow, tree gnome, lily pads, and some fish, among other items.Original work: 12" x 16" Oil on Canvas Panel  
Lonely Sentinel: The Sabine Bank Lighthouse
Lonely Sentinel: The Sabine Bank LighthouseAs the only offshore caisson lighthouse ever constructed in the Southern United States, the Sabine Bank Lighthouse offered a fascinating subject matter for my first commissioned piece.  Original Work: 12" x 16" Acrylic on Canvas Panel.  
Ever On Watch: The Sabine Pass Lighthouse
Ever On Watch: The Sabine Pass LighthouseThis commissioned piece followed shortly on the heels of the one featuring its sister lighthouse; The Sabine Bank Lighthouse.Original Work:  16" x 12" Acrylic on Canvas Panel
Evening At Sullivan's
Evening At Sullivan'sCommissioned by a son as a gift for his father who's a vintage Oldsmobile and Gulf Station enthusiast.  While it may seem a simple enough composition, there is a story taking place in this image, as a former employee returns to show his old boss he's made good. Original Work: 16" x 12" Oil on Prepared Hard Board Panel
Papa's Solitude
Papa's SolitudeThis limited palette piece was painted using only four colors, and was an experiment in depicting moonlight without showing the moon - both of which were direct challenges from my mentor. Original Work: 12" x 9" Oil on Canvas Panel
Nightlight
NightlightA familiar sight during power outages in the East Texas piney woods.  This piece was drawn using colored pencils on white, cotton based, paper stock.  Original Work: 10" x 8" Prismacolor Pencil on White Cotton Strathmore Media Board.  
Racing The Sunset
Racing The SunsetThis piece was commissioned by a couple who wanted a nautical themed painting for their living room.  The husband was enthusiastic about my lighthouses, but the wife wanted a sailboat.  If you look closely, you'll see that he wasn't completely left out. Original Work: 24" x 16" Oil on Prepared Hard Board Panel
Seaside Interlude
Seaside InterludeThe intention of this commissioned piece was to provide a beach escape without the hassle of travel.  Rolling waves signal a gentle breeze across the sandy shore, as two sets of footprints trail of toward the gentle surf.  12" x 16" Oil on Prepared Hardboard Panel
