  • Man of Prophecy

    Man of Prophecy

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    In days of yore, a truly learned man was rare, often more prized than generals or kings. But a learned man with the gift, the ability to see through time, would rule nations. I challenged myself to depict such a man. Fortunately, I knew one - a true visionary, touched by magic, and married to a fairy queen of remarkable beauty and power. Aside from all that, Real Musgrave, my model for this painting, had the costume, the cool staff, and the "look" I wanted.

  • Two for the Road

    Two for the Road

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    When you grow up with C.J. Cherryh as your big sister, you learn a lot about the world and it's history. Knowing I liked swashbucklers, Sis introduced me to the works of authors like Jeffry Farnol whose historical romances came alive with hundred year old colloquialisms and dialect. I had just finished his tale, The Broad Highway, when one of my friends from The Golden Palm Tape Network called to say they had come across a reference which described the pallet used by one of my great artistic heroes, Lawrence Alma Tadema. In a modified version of the pallet, I set about trying it out.

  • Tien Shan

    Tien Shan

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    Spirits in an ancient Asian forest are sometimes able to assume human form. Here, we have one such. She is thousands of years old and is the guardian spirit of an ancient grove of bamboo, nestled in the foothills of the mountains. Greet her with kindness and good will. Upsetting her would be a very bad idea.

  • Soror Marium

    Soror Marium

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    Soror Marium is Latin for Sister of the Sea. Over the years, I have acquired an eclectic library, including many books on historical costumes. Here, I used them to imagine a young lady of means made up for a fancy dress ball with a nautical theme. It quickly became popular. My friend, Barbara Higgins, recreated this outfit for a cosplay competition. It was glorious, and I was tremendously flattered.

  • Arafel

    Arafel

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"

    My sister knew how much I wanted to leave legal practice and become an illustrator. She wanted to encourage me and created a situation to do that. The great and kind Donald M. Grant had approached Carolyn to do a novella for him. She offered him Ealdwood - on condition that I have a chance to audition to do the interior art and the cover. He accepted me, I did the work, and I was hooked. I loved doing it and wanted to get better so I could attract more work of that kind. Later, DAW Books asked Carolyn to expand Ealdwood into a trilogy. The first novel was to be called The Dreamstone. Having done Ealdwood, I wanted my vision of Arafel on the cover, so I did an unsolicited painting and sent it to DAW. To my surprise, they used it.

  • The Bladeswoman

    The Bladeswoman

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    DAW asked me to create a cover with a female Erroll Flynn: charming, cocky swashbuckling, and deadly - but definitely one of the good guys. My friend, Kelly, was perfect for the role, but she had appeared on the cover of the same series in the previous year. It seemed best to work with Kelly again but to change her appearance. I usually use reference, but this time I just winged it on the face. Many have asked whether I intended to make it look like my sister, C.J. I didn't. Not consciously. Unconsciously? Maybe just a little.

  • Daughter of Conflict

    Daughter of Conflict

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    Daughter was the cover for Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress Vol. X. My assignment was to depict a professional warrior, admirable, but truly deadly. Unfortunately, my model had never handled a sword. She weilded it like a tennis racket. So, I put her in fencing gear and taught her about swordplay. A quick study, she was soon scoring points against me. On a break in the action, she relaxed into the pose you see, comfortable with the blade, proud of herself, and self confident. I took up my camera and said, "OK, now look me in the eyes and lean toward me. Look like you mean it." It was perfect. Jennifer, my favorite model - she always got it done.

  • Eastern Vision

    Eastern Vision

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    This particular figure and costume study has been very popular. It developed from an old black and white photo, circa WWII, of an elderly woman. She looked to be in poverty. Age and war had left her with so little, it broke my heart. Her arthritic hands could no longer grip the shaft of her parasol, but by putting the handle in the cup of her hand and using a finger from her other hand to steady it, she had achieved a graceful, elegant solution. I did this painting to honor that, and her.

  • Dawn Bather

    Dawn Bather

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    In a world gentler than ours, a young maiden begins her day. I have always been an artist, well, at least since the age of six when my sister taught me to draw the human figure. In life, I decided to be a stable family man, so I became a lawyer. Sis seemed to know I was not cut out for that. I was good at it, but I was not really happy with the skill set it required. I suppose the fact that I did this in odd moments at the office shows where my heart really was. Carolyn secretly had this print run done as a present. I have the best sister ever.

  • The Enchantress

    The Enchantress

    Signed and numbered limited edition 150

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    This is my portrait of Muff Musgrave. Wise, brilliant, and beautiful, she is every bit the Enchantress, as anyone who has met her will attest. She and her husband, Real, have been special friends, encouraging me to trade law for art back in the day and giving me advice and support along the way. They are magic people, and they shared their magic with me. For that, I am eternally grateful.

  • Lady of Gentle Magic

    Lady of Gentle Magic

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    In a time when education for women was confined to domestic crafts and superstition and ignorance ran rampant, this woman lived a life of service to her community as a healer. Using medicinal and herbal lore passed down from her elders she could speed healing, reduce swelling, halt a fever, and perform small surgeries. Jealous priests who could not equal these feats said she must be allied with evil powers and called her a witch. She was, instead, a great hero. This was the illustrated cover of vol. 8 of the German edition of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series, titled Die Schwarze Schwesternschaft.

  • La Bella Dame des Rochers

    La Bella Dame des Rochers

    Signed and numbered limited edition 150

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    When I was little, my father told me that many people would call to me in my life and that the ones which were most attractive were likely to be the ones I should mistrust the most. I had to think on that for a while. I did not want it to be true, but even as a young man I began to see the wisdom in his words. As an old man now, I can attest to it. All that glitters is not gold. The Beautiful Lady of the Rocks is a siren. Her form and call promise everything, but deliver only emptiness.

  • The Offering

    The Offering

    Signed and numbered limited edition 290

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    This painting always makes me happy. It reminds me of happy days when I used to drive from my place in Edmond, OK down to Real and Muff Musgrave's place near Love Field in Dallas. Usually, Real and I would drink coffee, smoke our pipes, and tell each other stories until the sun came up. Muff was incredibly patient with me. Little by little, she and Real were teaching me how to set up and run a viable operation as an artist. Why? Just because they were good people and I needed to be taught. This began as a doodle on one of those long lazy evenings.

  • Oh, My Sister...

    Oh, My Sister...

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    A lovely young mermaid explores ancient ruins on the seafloor wondering who could have mad such amazing structures. Then, coming upon a statue, she gasps. "Oh my gosh," she thinks, "it was people just like me." And she grieves for their loss. This was a private commission for a good friend and is a personal favorite of mine. Her rules were: no overt nudity, and she must have black hair. I do not believe in Muses, but if I did, I would say that I meant to comply, but was swayed by my muse to do otherwise. Once I got going with it, this was the way I saw it, and I had to complete it, even if it was rejected and I had to do another for my friend. To my surprise, she liked it and accepted it without changes.

  • Ryver at the Gate

    Ryver at the Gate

    Signed and numbered limited edition 275

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    Xanth is a world of puns and fun created by Piers Anthony. For the 1996 Xanth calendar, I was honored to create this portrait of Ryver (Elder brother of Jot and Tittle, son of Lacuna and Vernon, great grandson of Merlin, King of Xanth). His job is to guard the gate to Counter Xanth. His nickname is Water Boy, since he has power over water. Accordingly, I imagined a rather bored Ryver passing the time by juggling balls of water.

  • Sir Hector and Friend

    Sir Hector and Friend

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    My dear friend, Barbara Higgins, is a master costumer. One of my greatest honors was when she created an epic recreation of the character from my painting, Soror Marium. She wanted to present it at the WorldCon Costume Contest, but she said she needed a male companion to escort her down the runway. So, I created Sir Hector and Friend to provide a male counterpart. In the end, the costume for this gentleman was never made, but Barb's presentation was glorious nonetheless.

  • Sight Seer

    Sight Seer

    Signed and numbered limited edition 200

    Unmatted 8.5"x11"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    Your average writer might have been content to lump their short stories together and publish them, but not C.J. She wanted some way to take several different tales and tie them all together, so she imagined a traveler on a space ship passing time with those around her and telling a tale or two to illustrate one point or other that she was trying to make. So, she wrote a story about a storyteller, and who better to play the part than C.J. herself? I was highly amused. I not only got to do another cover for my sister, but I got to do her portrait as well. Great fun.

  • A Stitch in Time

    A Stitch in Time

    Signed and numbered limited edition 300

    Unmatted 10.375"x13"
    Double Matted 12"x16"

    She is a vision, certainly. But what kind? She appears to be a simple peasant maid passing time with her sewing as she awaits an unknown someone at the crossroads. But in the realm of fantasy she could be much more. Perhaps that gap in the trees is a portal to adventure in another time and place, and she is the guardian of that gate. She seems to beckon with a shy smile, trustworthy, surely. Or is she? Many a thrilling journey has started with less.

  • The Sentry

    The Sentry

    Signed and numbered limited edition 150

    Double Matted 11"x14"

    A fairy warrior stands guard against invading wasps. My parents had a lush, beautiful garden in our backyard. Spurred on by my Childcraft books and comics like Mary Jane and Sniffles, I imagined adventures there where the flowers were as tall as trees and I was very small. Such daydreams were happy and comforting. They still inspire my art. If you like The Sentry, check out my "Little Kingdom" series of paintings in the Gallery.

  • Simple Pleasures

    Simple Pleasures

    Signed and numbered limited edition 900

    Unmatted 28"x22"

    One of my favorite artists is Lawrence Alma-Tadema, English painter of Dutch descent, popular in the Victorian era for his elaborately detailed depictions of ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Simple Pleasures is an homage to Alma-Tadema. This was my first painting in oils and remains one of my favorites. My longtime friend and fellow artist, Steve Noyes, guided me in the painting process. For the printing, I moved to Dallas for a couple of weeks while Noyes patiently walked me through the process. Many corrections later, I had a print the same image size as the original which it matched identically in hue, value, and vibrance. Thanks, Steve.
