Reflections of Love

Becca and Dillon

Koi Painting


Blending of fish, water, colors and reflections into a beautiful but living impressionistic painting that is vibrantly alive. I try to capture it on photographs but it’s not the same as sitting by the ponds and experiencing it. I love my gardens, my koi, and wildlife, mountain hikes, valley hikes, walks around my beautifully gardened block. but most of all, I love my wife and precious daughters. I am blessed and grateful!

Beauty can be found everywhere when I take the time to mindfully observe, listen, and realize the connectedness of all creatures, plants, rocks, water,air,nitrogen, hydrogen,carbon,mountains,valleys, wheat fields, rice paddies, oceans, wilderness fields of clover and artful urban graffiti and windowsill gardens that dot the city’s streets.

you were started in the spring
And I watched her undergo
A miraculous transformation

and science can’t explain,
Our love,
Of which you’re the culmination.

as summer starts to wane
I look forward to your coming
with increased anticipation

When I touch Betty Jane,
I can feel you inside
Just adding to my elation
