We have moved

Hi Everyone,
It has been a very long time since my last posting, sorry.

Daniel and I have moved to Prescott Arizona. We have been working toward this for the last four years and we are finally here. It's hard to believe.

This will be the start of a new adventure for us and a lot of new subject for me to paint. I'm looking forward to discovering what Prescott has in store for us.

Mariposa 2013

Just came back from Mariposa where I have a photo shoot of a life time. I was there for three days and photograph bobcat, mountain loin, coyote, wolf, lynx, porcupine, baby tiger, bear and most important the Amur Leopard that I photographed, as a baby, last summer. He is now very good size and has a lot of leopard attitude. I have attached a few photo. Hope you enjoy.

The third photo is a photo of the Amur Leopard last summer and the second photo is him now. There is only 300 Amur leopard left in the world and only 30 in the wild so now you can see how special this photo shoot was.

You might see some of these image in my paintings. Take care to all and see you soon.

Easton, Maryland

Yes, I know, it's  been a while since my last posting. I have been working on several projects and getting ready for two shows.

In November Daniel and I where in Easton, Maryland for the Waterfowl Festival. This was my 11th time at the show and as always it was wonderful. We stayed with our friends that right on the Chesapeake Bay.
We had beautiful weather and it was great to see everyone at the show. See you next year.

Tulsa, Oklahoma

I have been hard at work for the last month and a half getting ready for the Tulsa show. It's a wonderful show. There are 51 artists and half of those are signature members of Society of Animal Artists. The people that organize the show are wonderful. We call them "Our Oklahoma Family". Daniel and I will be driving, as usual, and it will take us two and half days to get there. Our sweet little Tazzie will be going with us and she love this show.
I have finished quite a few paintings and below are a few.

For more information about the show you can go to or contact me. Hope to see you there.

France 2012

France 2012

It had been four years since our last visit to France. We left September 4th for a two-week visit and this time it would be all about family and friends.

We flew in to Lyon got our car a headed to Daniel’s Sister’s house in Roanne, just north of Lyon. That would be our base. From there we saw other family members, which is always great because they always start off with Champaign. (it’s hard but someone has to do it, smile). The weather was beautiful, warm and sunny which is not always the case. 

After about five days of eating and drinking all the wonderful things we haven’t had for four years we headed northeast to Cancale and Saint Malo to see two very dear friends. This was the first time we had been in that part of France and it didn’t disappoint. It was beautiful. It’s on the Atlantic Ocean and this is where they have some of the most extreme tides in the world.   They can have tide differences of over 25 feet and the Atlantic is breath taking. Cancale is know for it’s oysters but the oyster industry is having some difficulty as of late so it is really taking off as a tourist hot spot and it’s not far from Saint Malo and Mont Saint-Michel, two very famous landmarks in France. There is a lot of history in these parts both from the middle ages and in modern times.  We spend a half a day walking through Walled city of Saint Malo. It was truly one of the high points of our visit. Saint Malo is a middle ages fortress that during the WWII all of the building in the interior of the walls were destroyed but the outer wall were untouched. So what is there today is the wall of the 14th century and the buildings inside are after the WWII. It is one of the most visited site in France. In the summer this area have beautiful weather but in the winter it has gray skies, cold and lots of rain. 

This is just part of the trip. I will be add more is stay tuned.
