Pan of the Forest

Last summer I was hiking in the woods around Little Pine State Park in Pennsylvania. There’s lots of snakes, frogs, insects and birds to see. I’m a nature lover and always looks forward to seeing wildlife, especially in its natural setting. This surreal buck surrounded by lightning bugs and snakes in the grass is inspired by that walk.  Looking forward to some more hikes and plein air painting this spring.

The Night Visitors in the Studio

“The Night Visitors” Oil on Linen 44″x48″


The Night Visitors 800

The idea for this painting has been something I’ve been thinking about for years.  I kept visualizing beams of light coming down on a farm.  The painting kept growing to include this fox and the burning building in the background. “The Night Visitors” ….It’s like a movie setting or a chapter in a novel…
