Mama's Boy 8x10

Winded 5x7

  This old windmill has seen better days.  Much like many of the dry land farmers in North Dakota where I painted this.

The Undertakers 10x16 - sold



  I liked the backlit wings of this turkey vulture as he was getting warmed up in the morning sun.  This looked a little ominous at first glance, so the title seemed fitting.

Peaches and Cream 14x18 - sold

  As I was sketching this preening cockatoo in pencil, I was trying to think of something that would help me to remember the color; a mental note that I could use later.  The ice cream flavor 'Peaches and Cream' did the trick.

  Great Horned Owls have a very intense look about them, as do all birds of prey.  Their keen eyesight helps them hunt at night.
