4 Mile Sea Stack
4 Mile Sea Stack

16x20 (oil on canvas) There's something stoic about sea stacks. It might be the fact that they were once connected to the bluffs, and that after the ocean's relentless crashing waves against they form a natural bridge. The bridge keeps them connected to their roots, but the ocean swells persist. They hold their grasp until their collapse, standing tall before the setting sun.

Naples Point
Naples Point

24X16 (oil on canvas) Naples is a hidden gem with beautiful views of the Gaviota coastline. While traversing pastures of livestock and open fields, I often hit the Naples trail, binoculars in hand, searching for birds. This particular day a turkey vulture rode a thermal just before my easel.

Jalama Before the Storm
Jalama Before the Storm

24X16 (oil on canvas) I made this painting at Jalama Beach moments before rain started pouring down. Painting oils in water becomes an impossible task, so I packed up my gear and headed out for a surf. The lone fisherman stayed in the breakers patiently waiting for a bite.

SOLD 9x12 (oil on canvas board) Autumn brings some of Goleta's most vivid sunsets. There's something about the brisk evening air, and foreshadowing of winter that for me evokes a feeling of peace and tranquility.

24X18 (oil on canvas board) There was so much energy in the water this evening. I painted this while sitting on wet cobblestones until the tide pushed me home and the sun set.

Seagulls and Anacapa 24x12 oil

SOLD 12x24 (oil on canvas) A common sight to see as a lobster fisherman are the relentless flocks of Gulls anticipating to scavenge an overseen piece of bait. They become your audience as you you navigate from trap to trap, laughing when traps are empty and cheering when something’s caught. Here I portrayed them on a cloudy evening, worn out from a long day, as their shape begins to blend in with the light wind swell off the west tip of Anacapa.

Seabirds Contrast Alpenglow

SOLD 12x24 (oil on canvas) This painting conveys a beautiful warm evening looking east on the backside of Santa Cruz Island. I really tried to accentuate the warmth of distant point by the cool shadow of the foreground and ever present seabirds wrapping up the day, returning to their roost for the night. Anacapa is off in the distance.

East Tip of Santa Cruz

SOLD 12x24 (oil on canvas) This painting was inspired by a sketch I made during a break between pulling lobster traps. Sometimes when there is enough moisture in the air, and the lighting just right, distant cliffs and mountains take on a monochromatic tone as they gradually fade off into the distance.
