Acrylic on canvas (12"x24")

This was inspired by a giant tapestry of the biblical creation story that I used to admire as a child in Sunday school.

Four Pieces

Acrylic on canvas (5"x7" each)

Another of my less favorite paintings. All I can think of when I see this is a psychedelic eggplant. These paintings are the result of an attempt to practice painting straight lines.

Paper on canvas board (11"x14")

I used paper for this mosaic. It allowed me to use a variety of colors that are not easily available to me. Using paper also made it possible to easily frame the mosaic. I cut each of the tiny paper tessera by hand. I imagine there is a better way that I have yet to discover.

Cows on Pot

Paint on ceramic pot (6" approx.)

I painted this flower pot for my sister's birthday. When I visited her in Houston for Thanksgiving we planned to see the Cow Parade exhibit, but it was already over. We did find one cow by the art museum, however. When I painted this there were cows around Portland.
