Elim, 60x48, Acrylic on Canvas The Bible is about struggles and salvation; pain and joy, want and plenty and a fickle people God loves. In Exodus, God takes his people from Egypt to Elim, an oasis of more bounty than they can hope or imagine.God took me out of my Egypt and gave me back my painting. Elim is the result of God’s shepherding me back into His plan, His oasis as He set me on the rock of His assurance.

Swiftwater, 60x48, Acrylic on Canvas  This was an easy, happy painting; the play between cool and warm was my interest. I discovered with this painting that I have an innate propensity to ‘stop’ or ‘shut’ my paintings in.  The blue rock is visually dramatic at first but immediately fades as one’s brain relegates it into insignificance for the more interesting body of the painting.

And, go straight on...48x60, Acrylic on Canvas  I live in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and am filled with inspiration as I wander its forests.

Brookside, 48x36, Acrylic on Canvas  I find that many of my paintings speak to me metaphorically. The orange branch at the top of this painting seems visually insignificant yet it anchors the piece and gives it depth. Many of life’s pivot points masquerade at the time as an insignificant and benign choice but in reality set in motion a cascade of life deepening events. The choice is ours as to what is produced in the process.

Tranquility, 60x48, AOC  A limited palette of green and brown is too mundane for my forests.God has graced us with a buffet of color to ingest and savor.Falls fluorescents: yellow lichens against pink pine needles;crimson and scarlet vine maple.Winter's stark white bark of Aspens and mauves of bare branches. Spring and summer's brilliant colors of  new life burst forth anchored by the cool, deep tourquoise, Phthalo and dioxazine of the forest’s depth.

Splash::48x36::Acrylic on Canvas.  Each of my paintings is a miracle. I am continually convicted of the magnitude of both my insignificance, and yet, at the same time, significance in this life. And, I am humbled by the honor and blessing bestowed upon me to be a part of such beauty.

Turbulence, 36x48, Acrylic on Canvas There is such abstract, passionate beauty in the sky. A clear sky, still and silent, with its perfect value scale of blue is certainly beautiful in its serenity, but I am partial to the tumultuous drama of turbulent skies. The battle is on between the elements; between good and evil. As dark and turbulent as life gets, God is always there, bringing His light into our darkness.

Over and Around, 60x48, AOC  This excerpt from Oswald Chambers perfectly expresses why I am so drawn to paint rivers crashing over the bounds of rocks in their paths.  "A river is victoriously persistent, it overcomes all barriers...it comes to an obstacle and for a while it is balked, but it soon makes a pathway round...God will either take you round the obstacle or remove it. The river of the Spirit of God overcomes all obstacles...nothing must keep you from the one great sovereign Source.
