My wife loves Father of the Bride and that was partially the motivation behind this painting. I like to paint moments and great milestones in our lives. I was hoping to capture that moment when the bride and her dad first come in and the music “Here Comes the Bride” starts. Click here if you are interested in this painting.

Click here for a larger image.  On hot Summer Days my mom would ask if we wanted to play in the sprinkler. Of course I did. There was nothing like the feeling of freedom when running through the sprinklers. I hoped to recreate that here.  Click here if you are interested in this painting.

Homecoming.  Click here for a larger image. They say live is all about moments and cherishing moments. I have always loved homecomings especially when someone has been away in the military possibly in hostile area. There is something so real, so happy so much love in the moment. I wanted to try to capture that moment…one of the greatest moments in life.  Click here if you are interested in this painting.

Girl Fishing

Splash

Splash I love the way kids know how to have fun. As adults we let our worries and burdens silence our “just having fun mechanism” I hope to capture some “fun” If your interested in a print or canvas of “Splash” click here.

sidewalk shadows

sidewalk shadows I’m a fun and lover of highlights and shadows. The most biggest time of day for these is in the evening like in this scene. My hope is that you can feel of this scene. I you are interested in this painting click here.

Jesus

The King of Kings Click for larger image. John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” If you are interested in this as a print or canvas click here.

Sisters

Sisters I am a little biased about this painting because it is of my daughters. I love the play and exploring that goes on with siblings when they are getting along. Here they were facinated with these little fish near the rocks in Hawaii. I was facinated with the colors and the reflections.
