Tumamoc View

I've been going up to Tumamoc Hill to paint for several years now. I've painted in wind, drizzle, cold and heat. But today was perfect. Great weather with just a touch of a breeze. Here is todays one hour painting.

Houses of Tucson

Maddie is part of our extended Tohono O'odham family  (I am godfather of her aunt and uncle). One day she was playing in my backyard and treasuring a ring pop. I just had to paint her.

Boldini Portrait

A commissioned portrait in the style of Boldini. This was a fun one to work on. I love painting loosely with Boldini / Abstract Expressionist type brushwork.
