Getting Started

Sequoia Starts

This is how I start and then build it layer by layer.

“Eye on the Next Generation” – the Michigan Tree in Kings Canyon National Park and  “Silver Stream” a un-named giant in the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park

Studio Views

In the process of producing a large body of Giant Sequoia works. This is how I start. Nothing fancy. I usually have a collection of paintings at different stages going on at once, then if I get stuck or bored or looking for another element to include, I can focus on something else and let my subconscious find a solution.

Am I ready? For the South Valley Artists’ Studio Tour

The Michigan Tree

I wanted to share a glimpse of what you might see when you join me on the studio tour. I have been working on a whole new series of Giant Sequoia paintings, part of my Giant Sequoia Series, in preparation for a traveling show “All about our Giants”. These paintings are in various degrees of done and un-done. I wanted to share the whole process with you. Many of the pieces you will see are brand new and have never been seen before. I hope you will join me.
