I am very excited to exhibit in SoJie 14. SoJie 14 takes its name from the first letters of Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. 61 other members of the Solo Exhibition group, besides myself, are exhibiting.

This exhibition is based on an open workshop, in which I participated. There, members translated participants’ traditional artworks to our respective favorite medium and style, as traditional, photographic, or digital art.

Non members, as well as members, ARE welcome to view all of the work on show. So I hope that you will click the show banner, above, and follow the link to view my fellow exhibitors. The works are shown “gallery size” and are beautifu

SOLD! SOLD! Catalina Buffalo

Why didn’t someone tell me that animals sell better than people!!! 8.5X10.5 Pen&Ink Sketch hit with pastels on #140 Strathmore Water Color Paper: After a long climb up from Cat Harbor on the backside of Catalina I came across these two male buffalo wading in this small reservoir with just this great light behind them. I usually just have my little 9X12 clipboard with several sheets of #140 Strathmore Water Color Paper and a fine point sharpie. I try and find a rock in the shade to sit on during these hikes.I also take notes around the edges about colors I want to use. Then when I get home I try to color in the light with soft pastels. Sometimes I have to redraw the pen & ink work, if the colors get too intense, or I change over to acrylics for the colors.

Sold! Sold! Spooked Wild Mustangs

8.5X11 Pen & Ink Sketch with soft pastels on #140 Strathmore Water Color Paper.Thomas Honesco was actually the photographer for this one. It was taken in his front yard in Silver City, Nevada. Thank you Tom. I think these horses will look even better under glass in Silver City!
