"Nature.." original painting before finalizing

This painting looks great at another angle also. 

See bottom

these are some of my "discover paintings"


Good Composition allows a painting to be strong at different angles.  This is "Be Fearless" (above) at the landscape angle.

It's a hard decision which angle is better.   

I think "Speed Freak" could be a good name for this landscape version of this painting.


My Discover Paintings are very popular at my art events.  I have used paintings for a past event to show these "discover paintings" and explain how I "discover" my subject matter and how I work into some of the paintings.  These paintings were for the Bath House Art Mart 2020 show (this site and the sale has expired)  If you are interested in purchasing the available artwork on this page, please feel free to contact me.

These paintings are examples of what I call my “discover paintings”.  I begin a painting abstractly by applying contrasting, analgous, complimentary, etc. colors on the surface.  Once dry, I turn the painting at all angles to find inspiration, subject matter, etc. and then work negatively into the painting to “discover” images and patterns. This method of painting is always a challenge, with many unpredictable surprises when completed. 

Toward the bottom of these images, I show the original artwork of 2 paintings, "Nature" and "Until Eve arrived".

​Note:  all paintings are 5x7"  in a white mat, framed in an 8x10" black contemporary frame.  $108.00 includes tax.  All hang on the wall or sit on a desk.
