I enjoy painting waterfowl, it's fun for me to use my artistic license in placing the subjects into different backgrounds. I often enter waterfowl conservation art contest and have placed in those contests many times throughout the years.
Living in southwestern Montana provides me the opportunity to gather awesome reference material for my paintings. This region has a complete complement of ungulates, carnivores small mammals, and more.
Birds of Prey (hawks, eagles, and owls)
The noble posturing of birds of prey always take me by surprise. They earn the respect of any viewer. Painting eagles, hawks and owls is very empowering for me, and I endeavor to project that feeling with the finished painting.
Birds (song, upland, and shorebirds)
The fine delicate features of song birds to the hardiness of upland birds are characteristics that I focus on in my paintings. All birds are a joy to view in nature and for me to paint.
Landscapes (studio paintings)
Pure and simple landscapes of areas that get me excited.
