I'm out in Sedona, Arizona, sketching plein air with my pastels to create memorable views of the Red Rocks. Available for purchase as matted originals or prints.

Two Southwest Nativities in their prize winning settings Terra Cotta Sedona Nativity
This year the "Southwest Snowman in the Prickly Pears" has
paired up with the Prickly Pear Ornament for the 2018 Arizona Highways Gift Guide.
In 2017 my pair of friendly Saguaro Ornaments were featured in Arizona Highways Magazine's Gift Guide. In 2016 my Terracotta Nativity Ornament was chosen, and in 2015, my Christmas Javelina in a Santa hat took center stage. He can now be found foraging around the Javelina Section or with the ornaments. The Javelina ornaments were also featured in the Sedona Monthly magazine's December 2014 issue. It was hard to keep up with all the requests for them at the Sedona Arts Center. Those little "not a piggies" are so popular!
2014, my Southwest Nativity Set in the Arizona Highways' Holiday Gift Guide was a huge success, a total of 61 sets were ordered, that's 610 little figures! I feel very honored that they continue to choose my works for their publication.
As for paintings... "Two Flutes", was in the March 2013 issue of "The Artist's Magazine". It
was one of ten winners in the international "Over 60" competition.
