We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Bob White Quail, mixed media (acrylic, ink, pencil) on gesso board 6x8

Well, I'm done painting Mr. Bob White. This painting is a small piece, 6"x8" on a ridged gesso board and will end up with a wonderful hand made, one of a kind frame created by my friend and woodworker Eric Troast.
The image came from one of Bruce's slides from a long time ago but I've always liked the rich colors in the bird that seemed to echo with the broken tree behind it. Even in its winter environment, all puffed up, he looks quite special.
