When I first came to the Outer Banks I lived in Nags Head and would often roam among the dunes there. Now they are covered over with a golf course, the village of Nags Head, an outlet mall and a lot of other things. Yes, in 30 years, there have been a lot of changes. But I still have a great fondness for the open, wild dunes. This is a pastel on sanded paper and became a gift to a friend who took the photo I used.

One of my favorite childhood characters was Bugs Bunny so I love to paint rabbits. This one is from a photo by Eve Turek. He was busy lounging by the roadway, as they often do in the spring, after a breakfast of sweet, new grass. A pastel on purple Canson paper.

This shrimp boat is often docked in Wanchese and here pictured beside the dock building that was very often sketched and painted, tho never painted in real life or even tended to and finally fell down, much to the regret of many local artists since it was so quaint and picturesque. This was a small oil on a panel. The boat's name is "Redemption." Seems very fitting for a boat name.

I love to take photos of winter sunsets and sometimes they are brilliant, but other times they are more subdued like this one. This was a sail boat on Bay Drive, KDH that was in a constant state of repair, which is kind of a typical scenario for winter boats. Oil on a panel.
