Underwater scene for Wyoming Valley Children's Association Sensory Room

The Wyoming Valley Children's Association asked me to do an underwater themed mural for their sensory room which is under renovation. A sensory room is a therapeutic space with a variety of equipment that provides students with special needs with personalized sensory input.

New Hangings in the Marquis Window!

The latest painting I've done is in the window of Marquis. It is visible as a drive by or a walk by and if you so desire, go inside and see the same sized painting facing the interior of the gallery.

Watching Trees

I find myself watching trees more and more. Their ability to undergo all sorts of weather, changes and cycles of life and stand regal and tall despite it all truly inspires me.

He said: "How about another?"

This sweet girl crossed the rainbow bridge awhile ago and has been succeeded by other gorgeous English Springer Spaniels.

This sweet girl crossed the rainbow bridge awhile ago and has been succeeded by other gorgeous English Springer Spaniels.  I painted some of her predecessors with rave reviews prompting another. Here is Thatcher - the one and only time he was on the boat in Maine.  She went out big!

And this sweet boy is living the life with organic turkey jerkey for snacks, ample exercise and air conditioning when needed.  Some may wonder how they ever lived without Razz.....
