“Purple Sunset” 2007 acrylic on canvas board

One of the places that I have always wanted to visit is Hawaii. I’ve visited beaches from California to Florida and Mexico, and each of them I have found uniquely different from the other. I’d love to walk on the black volcanic sand and see the green cloaked mountains rising sharply from the sea, eat some local food, and enjoy the island life…if only for a short while.

Someday I will make it to Hawaii. But in the meantime, images of its beaches and sunsets have been the subject of a lot of my art. I’d love to climb into this scene and drift in the breeze in that hammock!

This piece was painted for a friend and brings the scenery of Hawaii to a Colorado home.

“Palm Sunset” 2006 acrylic on canvas

I painted “Palm Sunset” to match a bedroom I had all adorned in tropical theme. I have great interest in interior design, so naturally, painting goes right along with that. If I want something to go on the wall to match the room, I just paint it.

My bedroom is now black and white, and “Palm Sunset” brightens the home of a friend.

I’ve always loved the ocean, warm weather, and beautiful sunsets, and I’m thankful to now live in a tropical setting. I can look out my window and watch the palm fronds swaying in the wind. Inspiration is everywhere!
