Banyan Canyon Rodeo

Banyon Canyon Rodeo

Banyan Canyon Rodeo began as a small, 12″ x 9″, plein air painting on the grounds of the Ringling mansion in Sarasota,FL.  A squirrel scampered about and preened on a branch as I was painting. In the studio, the painting cried out for more interest and I remembered the squirrel’s visit and decided to imagine what might go in at this location when no one is looking.

A Farce

Farce Remarque

A watercolor painted opposite the title page in a copy of “A Farce to Be Reckoned With” a book by Roger Zelazny and Robert Sheckley. I came up with the title to this when I read the publisher’s manuscript and got a personal atta-boy from Mr. Zelazny.
