Summer in the South of France
11″x16″
Oil On Hand-Built Linen Canvas
Painted 2022 
$528
There is a special feeling and experience when visiting the south of France in Summer. I remember waking up to a  gentle warm breeze and the sound of the quaint village bell in the morning. Halli and I were fast to the local bakery for the fresh pastries, especially the chocolate croissants.
This is a study I did from a Claude Monet painting in attempts to learn and use his techniques in my own work.

Lake Louise
5  1/2ft x 7 1/2ft
Oil On Canvas
Painted 2018-2019
$15,120
The majestic lake Louise instantly inspired me to create this painting. I couldn’t believe my eyes how emerald green the waters were. This will be a first of many Canada paintings, there is so much more beauty that I can’t wait to capture. 

 

Into Eden
5ft x8ft
Oil On Linen
Painted 2020-2021 
$17,280
Into Eden is about the beauty of gardens. Its a very green painting and I enjoyed using an array of different green earth pigments to make it come to life. I included some fruit trees that I grew up eating in my parents backyard such as an Orange tree and a Loquat tree. The lushness makes you wander beyond it’s stonewall entry.

 

Chateau
7ft x 7ft
Oil On Linen
Painted 2020-2021 (6months)
$21,168
My love for European architecture and design plays a significant role in my painting. I feel most inspired by many of the great artists who anchored the traditional rich oil painting methods and techniques. 

The grandeur of chateaus and pristine gardens are breathtaking. I wanted to capture the mood between dusk and nighttime just as the chateau begins to light up.

Napali Wild
7ft x 9ft
Oil On Linen
Painted 2020-2021 (6months)
$27,216
My wife Halli, baby Norah and I had visited the beautiful Napali coastline by boat on the island of Kauai. I felt so inspired by the huge cliffs that stretch far into the clouds. When we had visited it was a very calm day, however our guide had told us that the swells in the winter can reach upwards of 100 + feet and I could only imagine the power and enormity of the crashing waves. 
I sourced many blue pigments to capture the majestic presence and richness of the heaven-like ocean color surrounding this great Island.

 

The Giant Forest
5.4ft x 13.7ft
Oil On Canvas
Painted 2020-2021 (6months)
$96,288
I spent six months on a ladder capturing the giant forest! These magnificent giants take your breathe away! I took a last minute trip before baby Norah to visit the park as well study and capture reference material. I grabbed some moss, bark and other foliage to help bring the painting together!

Evening At Big Ben 
24″x30″ Oil On Canvas
$3,160

The nostalgia of Big Ben has always captured my eye. There is something unique I love about the architecture as well the setting on the river. I enjoyed painting in a dramatic mood, Capturing the setting sun in a place it doesn’t normally set and add in the passing steam boats

Jesus and The Road to the Campagna
3’x7′ Oil On Canvas
$11,072

I remember standing in the museum seeing this landscape of this scene from the great artist Thomas Moran. I decided to put my take on it by making it much larger and adding in the scene of the tomb.

Yosemite Sunset
36″x48″ Oil On Canvas
$4,200
                         
Perhaps my favorite part of Yosemite is the quiet valley floor. Its so peaceful and tranquil with the Merced River murmuring over round river rocks and when you look up, well that is just something you have to see with your eyes. No painting could be big enough to capture Yosemite’s glory. I tried.

The Edge of Hope could tell a thousand stories of how hope leads us to a greater strength and even greater victory’s.
