Guardians of the Forest
The path I follow leads through cedars so high that one might fall over to see the upper branches. There is one ancient cedar tree that rooted over the rocks that is so much shorter. She is twisted, gnarled and her branches reach well over the wall into the gorge overlooking the falls. She is beautiful, unique and I call her Sorceress. Just had to paint her as one of the Guardians of the Forest. 84" x 48" triptych acrylic on canvas Contact Artworld Fine Art Gallery artworldfineart.com

Softer Side of Stiletto
The playful use of a pastel colour pallet in the Softer Side of Stiletto contradicts the strong, dynamic, defining lines displayed by the stiletto – so deservedly named after the stiletto dagger. The shoe itself is a work of art; where desire overrules practicality. It is a designer fashion statement that accents the entire body, perhaps reflecting an aspiration to reach new heights. Like a string of pearls; the stiletto will continue to stand the test of time. It very simply – a stunning shoe regardless of the colour. 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas $450 framed
