Trees and Cliffs 

Trees and rocks have always been recurring themes in my art. As of late, I have had the opportunity to visit a number of places in the Texas Hill Country where I have had the privilege of absorbing the beauty and mystery of the sandstone cliff formations. Once again, my imagination has been allowed to run rampant. What have the cliffs seen in the centuries it has taken them to form? What about the trees that fight to survive amongst the rock? What can be seen in the beautiful colors and formations? I hope you enjoy the work produced so far from these experiences and observations. I will be creating more in the near future - enjoy these visions from my mind.
