Her first love. Her own puppy. Her dream come true. A moment like this, we don't want to ever end.
Without something to Love...Love has no meaning.
Solitary trees such as this cotton wood, always inspire and speak to me of timeless, ancient meaning. They have weathered through the storms of life as years come and go, from one generation to the next. They speak of strength, & endurance, in a world that is ever changing.
The perspective, space, the land, the light and this lone cottonwood here in the valley, made this rural county road a must to capture in pencil. We are all on a journey towards the future. In life we do not see where our path may lead but we trust in due time to reach those glorious mountain tops.
It’s all in the eyes of this young horse! So young, innocent and still a lot to learn - but the willingness in his eyes and his positive attitude captivated me. He inspired me to be a better person.

Compassion in the Chicken Coop, comes from a childhood memory that I fondly hold in my heart. It represents my only sister with which I played in our chicken house when we were probably 4 and 7 years old. We would tuck their heads under their wings to rock the chickens to sleep, perch them on their roost and they would not even fall off. I have wanted to do a work such as this for many years in dedication to my sister. This piece was a pure joy to create.
09.19.19 Fresh off the easel. Completed just a couple days ago. This Flee Bitten Grey proved to be a great challenge in drawing a textured white coat. Best Pals, this innocent child whispering a 'Secret' in his horse’s ear made this drawing irresistible!
My respect for Jack is expressed with real Reverence. Jack is one of the most inspiring animals I've ever known. His gaze, and the look in his eye penetrates my heart deeply. I desire to have that same obvious connection as Jack, does with the unseen Master.
In dedication to a dear friend, and his wife ... Who’s example has greatly impacted my life and inspired me ever since I’ve known him. Who’s love, support and advice has been invaluable in my personal and professional journey.
