Crystal Cove Reflection 18x24 Oil on Canvas

Finalist for Raymarart's 2010 yearlong national fine art competition
Judge's Comments: "Eureka! A painting filled with all my favorite wow factors: an exciting composition, energetic brushwork, and a full color palette. It appears the artist connected with the scene and merely brushed on emotion laden spots of color to express it. The painting then came together on its own, very Charles Hawthorne-esque in approach. I particularly like the bold diagonal lead in strokes juxtaposed with the vertical dwelling and hilltop reflections, the strong lights and darks, cools and warms and the seemingly innocuous but important minuscule strokes forming the wired telephone poles and the distant red sailboat". Judge - Cathy Dicetrich

San Clemente Library 12x16 Oil on Canvas Panel

Finalist for Raymarart's 2008 yearlong national fine art competition
"An ordinary street scene made evocative by bold stylization, muted color, restrained color accents and unifying pattern of moody darks. Superb drawing, composition, juicy brushwork… A professional lesson on many levels, but what stands out is the space relationships of forms, particularly the negative spaces."Judge - William Wray






Corner Light 12x16 Oil on Canvas Panel

Finalist for Raymarart's 2007 yearlong national fine art competition
"Excellent design – Excellent palette – Excellent light. Strong centrality of focus and beautifully painted. Great mass with spirit of painting!
One of my favorites! Great job!" Judge - CW Mundy
