"Majestic is His Name", 8x10, oil on panel, paintings of sunsets, clouds, scrub pines

"Majestic is His Name", 8x10, oil on panel

 Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
2Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
3When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?c-
.-Psalm 8

Sunsets speak volumes about God's majesty. I never grow tired of the ever-changing colors, shapes and majesty of God's Sunsets. This was painted from a photo that I took at Venice Beach Florida, recently, just as the sun was in its final descent. There are two pine trees there that have been dubbed the "Twin Sisters" because they seem to be interlocked in an eternal embrace due to their proximity to each other. I love looking at the different shapes that they make at different times of the day. Sometimes eagles nest in their branches. God is good.

Please email me at, if interested in purchasing this painting.

"Three Muses', 14x11, oil on linen

First painting of the new year. It's are-do of  a painting I did of the same scene a while back. Not sure which came out better, but it was certainly a good exercise for me.
