Waking Up – Beach Painting

Imagine camping out on the beach, gazing up at the thousands of stars in the midnight blue sky, and drifting off to sleep to the sounds of the waves. When you wake up in the morning to the natural alarm clock of the seagulls singing, the morning sun is coming over the horizon and casting a sunny hue over the ocean and sand!

Bike and Cafe Watercolor Painting

Coffee is a daily pastime of mine, which is probably why I love to paint cafes and coffee so much. This watercolor painting shows a sunny street, a parked red bike, and a cafe beckoning you to enter, sit down, take your time, and sip on a coffee. Now that sounds like a day well spent!

The original 9″ x 12″ painting, on archival, acid-free watercolor paper, is available for purchase, as well as 8″ x 10″ archival prints. Just visit the “Buy Art” page for more information.

Sevilla, Spain Flamenco Art

Flamenco Art

Flamenco music and dance is a passionate art form that originated in the Andalucía province of Spain from Gypsy, Moorish and Jewish influences, among others. This art illustration is inspired by a flamenco show my wife and I took in at the Caja Sol Theater in Sevilla, Spain.

Lito Marcos – Portrait Art Drawing

My wife and I went to Argentina in August with my mother-in-law, so I wanted to give my mother-in-law a gift that would be relevant to that visit. Since I’m an Artist, I thought of creating a portrait!

So, I drew a portrait of her father Marcos, who was from Buenos Aires and was the son of immigrants from Russia and Poland. He was known to my wife as “Lito Marcos.” “Lito” is short for “abuelito”, or “abuelo”, which means “grandpa” in Spanish.

Lito Marcos is one of two family members of my wife that I didn’t get to meet (the other was her great-grandmother “Mama Polita” from Ecuador). From all accounts, we would have gotten along great, as he loved to watch sports games on the couch, just like I do!

Crystal Beach – Palm Harbor, Florida. Original Oil Painting

Crystal Beach Original Oil Painting – 8″ x 10″ on Canvas

Crystal Beach, Florida Oil Painting – SOLD

Crystal Beach is one of my most favorite beaches in the world. It’s located in Palm Harbor, Florida, a community in Pinellas County, across the bay from Tampa.

Though named Crystal Beach, it’s not so much a beach as it is a large, calm body of water with a long pier that extends out into the water; the perfect place to kick back and take in sunsets.

Here I have witnessed the most beautiful sunsets along its Gulf of Mexico horizon.
