Boats by Savannah River on 16″ x 12″ Panel

I decided to put more work in this painting because I found my first attempt to be too dark. I wanted to add more vibrancy and clarify where the sunlight was hitting. I chose the leave the boat in the background loosely defined. Objects can be mean many things to different people. For me, boats represent some sort of journey and freedom.




A Valley: Acrylic on 16″ x 12″ Panel

Sometimes I feel like the mountains are calling me. I have been living in Savannah, GA for six years where there are no mountains or large hills. This painting took me to a beautiful place for just a moment.

A Glance Through Waters: Acrylic Painting


Gazing Waters Watermarked.jpg

Whereupon I met a light , so brilliant that the remnant hues of yellow ocher, which began as white, drifted off into the darkness and surrounded the dark olive grass. I stand among the thorns, the falling leaves, the thickets of grass. I begin to observe the colors, I can’t remember where I stand, but I stood in the shadows awakened by its presence. The thorns, the leaves, the grass, surrounded me. I did not move towards the light, as I knew that the light I saw was ever more present in the shadows.
