"Whale Coast Overlook| Acrylic on panel. We are so fortunate to have a drive with such spectacular views between Hermanus and Cape Town. For this painting I focused on the mountains rather than the ocean views to the left.

"Walker Bay Whales" pastel on panel. There aren't many places in the world where you have such spectacular views of the ocean in the morning and the bonus of whales putting on a show while you paint en plein air. I started out wanting to capture the atmosphere with the sunlight causing the morning mist to glow but couldn't resist capturing the whales. . . . . . #whale #humpback #ocean #coastal #marineart #plein air #pastelpainting #landscape #morning Whales, Sunlight, Mists, Coastal, Glow, Ocean, Landscape, World, Artist

"Marsh Snail" pastel on paper. Sometimes I just like to paint the quiet little things. While kayaking in marshes you can observe the subtleties of nature that are easily overlooked. We often only see the spartina grass above the water and not the fields of it underneath or the snails slowly moving through it. . . . . . #marsh #snail #reflection #pastelpainting #art #artist

"Masonboro Airshow" pastel on paper. Uninhabited islands are a huge hit with the shorebirds and I wanted to show them enjoying their freedom in the sky. I needed to depict each bird with only a few strokes and limited values but refuse to resort to the icon "m" that many paint to represent birds in flight. . . . . . #shorebird #bird #wildlife #coastal #pastelpainting #art #artist #masonboroisland Shorebirds, Air Show, Birds In Flight, Islands, Coastal, Freedom, Wildlife, Sky, Posts

"La Vierge Winery" pastel on panel. I painted this en plein air in the Hemel en Aarde Valley 2 years ago from above La Vierge. After the wildfires last year the remaining vegetation looks very different. It was a terrifying time for many and we are very grateful for the efforts of our firefighters. . . . . . #pleinairpainting #pastelpainting #art #artist #vineyard #mountains #grapevines

"Kissed By Firelight" acrylic on panel. Today is Kim's birthday! I am so fortunate to have such a loving and supportive wife. Behind every great man is a great woman rolling her eyes.  When I first met her in a college art class we were told to sketch the person sitting across from us and there was Kimmie. I had no idea we would end up together and now I can't imagine life without her. I painted this portrait from life in 2017 in my studio. I look forward to painting many more portraits of… Behind Every Great Man, Person Sitting, Great Women, Sketch, College, Portraits, Posts, Drawing, Woman

"Urban Predator's Eye" pastel on paper. My little scoundrel Moose believes that he is a lion and not just a sweet little kitty that loves snuggles treats and lots of naps.
