Description This piece puts you in a different mood from any other in the landscape series. Trees sprouting out of a pond, makes you wonder what lurks beneath. Shadows and reflections give a calm and comforting feel.

My style varies and consist of abstracts to landscapes. My inspirations come from the beauty in everyday life. Each day I am thinking of something to paint. I listen to live poetry and spoken word on a regular basis for added ideas and inspirations.
