A Dozen Shades of Gray Anniversary, Art and Cats Transcend Language

June 5 is the fifth anniversary of creating this simple little monochromatic pastel sketch of Jelly Bean enjoying the view out the window with lots of different kinds of light on his fur. It’s still surprising to me that this has always been one of the most popular of all my daily sketches. At the […]

Angel Daisies in June

Years ago I gave my sister some seeds from my Shasta daisies and she grew them into a huge daisy garden. “Angel Daisies” features a whitewashed angel she had placed in the garden of daisies and she looks right at home. I don’t know what she did to get her daisies to grow so fervently, […]

Brighten Up Your Morning, Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on this morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. It’s a registered […]

Upcoming Events in May

If you are local I’d love to see you at any of these events in the month of May. I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. I’m looking forward […]

A Gentle, Quiet Snowfall

It isn’t always eternal summer on the trail, though memories might make us think so. Winter is my favorite season to paint. I love the subtleties of color and shape with snow in the air and on the ground, and on the trail I am often all alone with the quiet of a winter day, […]

A Crisp Autumn Day on the Panhandle Trail

I painted this scene for my August 2014 exhibit “Sun Shadow Ice & Snow: Seasons of the Panhandle Trail” during Rock the Quarry, the annual fundraiser for the Panhandle Trail. This painting doesn’t have as big of a story as others, but I will say it’s hard to paint along the trail in autumn—or anywhere […]

It’s a Rainy Night on Main Street

I pulled up to a stop sign and saw this view of Main Street at night in the rain. I took a photo with my ever-present digital camera (and actually have it in my gallery “At Night in the Rain” ) but at the time a friend had also given me boxes of leftover art […]

Autumn Rainbow

This is the colorful sugar maple that stands by Chartiers Creek on my way to Main Street. It’s like an old friend. I chose this angle because it had every color of leaf in it and filled the whole frame with just bits of that brilliant complementary blue autumn sky. Because the leaves are almost […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

I’m so excited to offer an image that is so dear to me—one of my cats on my studio windowsill. All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because […]

Autumn Showers, the Magic of Birches

From the time I met the paper birch in our front yard I have always been attracted to the delicately detailed white bark of birch trees which seemed to emit its own faint light in any season. Here, in the darkness of the woods, the grouping of white trunks looks like a crowd clustered for […]
