As rain falls from the thick rain clouds, I can see ripples expand throughout the water,
With each drop of water that hit the surface, I gaze into the water and try to see what s looking at me...

Reflections 30″x 30″ oil on distressed wood 2016
When my wife and I still had he Giving Tree thrift store in Upland, CA, a nice older woman used to frequent our business. She would purchase clothing, etc. and often donate items. Once she gave us some old weather-beaten boards that she had painted some trees on. I thought these boards looked so cool that I held onto them for years, and even hung a few on our store wall. Somehow, I innately knew I would have some other purpose for them in the future. One of these distressed boards became, Reflections. Created in 2016, this is an original oil painting on wood. It s dimensions are 30 inches by 30 inches. This work is framed.
