Nature Inspired Paintings

 

I have two whole galleries of trees, but I'm also inspired by other types of beauty in nature.  Sunsets, sunrises, auroras, storms, rock formations, creatures...  Some of these paintings are also found in other locations on my website, such as the Custom Order Gallery.  Most shown here are done in a realistic style, but I work in other styles as well.  Be sure to also see the Tree Gallery.  Many here are sold.  Some can be made again.  Please inquire.

Desert Life

Desert Life

This painting was made for a special art show where I painted from the photography of Glenn Gove, and we exhibited our work side by side. This 16" x 20" painting got some serious attention to detail. I did not do my usual grid method for all these branches. I decided it was too tedious, and I eyeballed it. It did turn out a little different from the photograph, but very close, I think. And I walked away with my sanity intact! 16" x 20". Sold, but prints can be made upon request.
