Each of the paintings is an original watercolor. The paintings are sprayed with a thin fixative to protect and waterproof them. The "frames" or "settings" are cut from either Gaboon or Macassar ebony. Ornamentation is of solid sterling silver, and the "Wood" kanji is in red enamel. Each pendant is supplied with a 16" black rubber cord with a sterling clasp.

I have done a few album covers for some musician friends and hope to do more. Collaborating with other artists is a great enjoyment.
I have an interest in working with authors and this is the first book cover that I have done. I have the possibility of illustrating a childrens book and am hoping that it works out soon.
The Narathon is a collection of 100 paintings that I did in 100 days during summer, 2018. Each day of the event I sent out an email to everyone who participated. The email had an image of the days painting and a poem or verse accompanying it. When The Narathon ended I put together an online flipbook of the paintings and poems, adorning it with elements that were isolated from other paintings that I have done. There is also a gallery page that shows each of the paintings in a larger image without the poems.
This is a time lapse video of a painting that was made for Jack Irons' new EP, "Dream of Luminous Blue". I painted a watercolor to accompany each of the tracks on the EP. "Lie to the Animals" was the final painting that I did in the series. You can see the entire series by clicking Jack's link above.

Giclée prints of original paintings are limited to 54 reproductions.
Giclées are printed on Cold Press Bright White paper; 310g, water-resistant, and made from 100% cotton fiber, acid and lignin free.
Giclées of paintings that contain gold leaf will have gold leaf applied to them also so that the giclée reflects the quality and character of the original painting. The cost of the giclée reflects the additional hand work involved.
Giclées are sold unframed, but I am happy to frame your giclées for you if you like. Check out my Framing Methods and Materials page to get a sense of my approach to framing. Please contact me if you have further questions.
Purchases are processed through PayPal. If you prefer another payment method please contact me to make arrangements.
8.25% sales tax is applied to all sales originating in California.
Shipping charges for giclées are added during PayPal checkout and are $15 for the contiguous 48. If you live in Hawaii or Alaska, or anywhere else on earth please contact me before making a purchase so that your preferred shipping arrangements can be made.
Shipping charges for framed originals and giclées vary widely. Please contact me before purchasing so that we can discuss packing and shipping to your location.
Yes, this is it! This is genuine. The painting is setting off their imagination.
There is a special place on the northern California coast called Timber Cove. Here the sandstone rocks form a sculptural wonderland of forms, shaped by the weather and time. Patches of wildflowers grow out of the crevices, catching the flow of water as it runs down the rocks to the sea. Over the years I have visited Timber Cove many times, taking photos, jumping from rock to rock, and reveling the beauty all around me. This is the first painting that I did of this unusual point on the Sonoma Coast.
Benjamin Bufano erected his final work, “Peace Obelisk”, on the sandstone cliffs at Timber Cove. It is a major accomplishment. Unfortunately, because of the eroding coastline, it’s future is uncertain.
If you are driving on Highway 1 I suggest you stop here and wander the cliffs and beach. The cliffs are a fantastic opportunity for photographers.
