In my life I have felt like a negative soul. Still it seems the act of creation is an act of optimism.
A brooding forest scene. Experimenting with some new ideas.
North Idaho is a heavily timbered part of the country. I am beginning work on a series that pays tribute to the forest. Of course I will be working on many other things as I can not help it.

A painting from early February of this year. I sold this one through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
