A direct stare from the predominant turkey pulls the viewer in. The distant background is unimportant as the quiet presence of the subject draws on quiet stillness.
This donkey looks directly at the viewer almost asking a question. Distortion is used to pull the viewer into the painting. A vague background keeps all the attention on the subject.
Painted with a classical dark background this goose is the only object for the viewer to see. It is a strong image and provokes the viewer into interpreting what the goose may be thinking.

With a fogged in background, the emphasis in this painting is solely on the subject. A bit of the sweeter side of this backyard llama comes out to greet the viewer.

The subject is placed in front of a modern background to give the viewer another unusual surprise.
Perched into the middle of a bountiful sunflower is this husky fellow getting his fill. The day’s bright light is brought out in the yellows of the petals and the skylight filtering through the background trees.
Filling the entire canvas is the beautiful colors of Autumn. Bright reds, golds, and yellows mix with a sparse background to bring the subject very close to the viewer.
A beautiful Fall day offered this view of DeBord Falls at Frozen Head State Park near Wartburg, Tennessee. This Plein Air painting shows the viewer the colors of fall, a limited water flow, and a clear, cool pool.
