2016 Small Paintings


These recent groupings of small paintings, created for the 2016 Orange County Studio Tour,

were inspired by the rich diversity of rocks, minerals and gems found in my study of earth sciences.

The sizes range from 6″ x 6″ to 24″ x 24″  (sizes and prices for specific pieces available on request)
