The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth

Watercolor     22″ x 30″

An experimental piece; I began by pouring  watercolors and letting them flow into one another and mix on the paper.   After this I started laying in lines and creating forms following where intuition led me.   This piece is obviously about the big journey, the one we are seldom completely aware of.

Bobcat Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

Bobcat Cheyene Mountain Zoo

Pastels     8″ x 10″

I visited the zoo back in December.   It was too cold and there was lots of snow on the ground; the more exotic elephants and giraffes were kept snug in their indoor shelters.   That was okay because I was more interested in seeing examples of local animals, the wolves and moose and cats that live in the Rocky Mountains.   I took photos of this bobcat as he was enjoying the sunshine and the brisk air.

Bunny In My Back Yard

Bunny in my back yard

Pastels     8″ x 10″

I live on a cliff overlooking the city and am regularly visited by Mule Deer, rabbits and hawks.   Last night I watched two rabbits hoping, jumping and chasing one another in my back yard for the longest time.   I assume it was love play.   I wanted to capture them on my camera but because it was dusk and their coloring matched the grass they were playing in I could barely make them out myself, and my camera couldn’t pick them out at all.

This painting is based on some photos taken during the middle of a sunny day not long ago as the little guy rested in the grass just outside my doors.
