This is Singh, our pocket-lion.  Also known as Hoover, for his habit of sucking up any stray crumbs left lying around.  I caught him in the act of preparing to knock the dolphin off the shelf; a moment later, it was on the floor.  I could almost hear him saying, “Ah, little one… we are alone at last!  Now you will learn to FLY…!”

“Capitola Sunset II”


“Capitola Sunset II”
Pastel on Canson paper, 24″ x 18″, 1986. Giclee available.


This painting  of sunset over the pier in Capitola, California, was actually painted back in 1986, and has been following me around ever since.  It had gotten a little banged up in the course of its travels, but has always been a favorite… so when I finally got around to framing it, the other day, I did a bit of touching up.  In fact, I ended up going over practically everything!  So this painting is, quite literally, re-NEWed. 😉
