Birches 2, Radiance, ink with watercolor washes

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

Evening Breeze on the Beach

No, I’m not on vacation, I painted this in 2000. I love that feeling of the breeze in the beach grasses, the sound of the waves breaking just over the dune, and the long and colorful shadows and warm sunlight, the day cooling as the sun begins to set. After the first time I visited […]

The Swimming Hole on a Hot Summer Afternoon

On a hot summer afternoon out on the trail, there is nothing more refreshing to me than wading into the deeper area of a stream and cooling off. This painting was actually visualized during one of the visits with my great nieces and nephews and I knew I’d have to paint it, but it came […]

My Neighbor’s Laundry, A Summer Thing

I do have a thing for laundry. This is one of several paintings featuring or including laundry. This could be anywhere, but Carnegie really is a place where people still use their backyards to hang laundry, including me. And it really is my neighbor’s laundry in the back yard on a lovely summer morning. I […]

After a Summer Thunderstorm

These daily summer thunderstorms remind me of my painting, “Summer”, painted from a favorite abandoned farm field as a morning thunderstorm cleared over the scene. “Summer” is an abandoned farm field on a high ridge which I passed regularly on the way to work each morning for six years, seen right after an early morning […]

“That Green One in the Back” from “Lost My Marbles”

I had a great time photographing this bunch of marbles and took so many playing around with angles and focal depth. This image is focused on “that green one in the back”. I found this bunch of marbles in the soil of a yard where I lived years ago. None is valuable, but are all […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

Autumn Showers, the Magic of Birches

Near me, the leaves are beginning to change color in earnest, and autumn rain has been falling. In this experimental oil pastel from 2000, using oil pastels with turpentine to soften and blend them, I tried my best to capture that sense of the blazing white trunks and leaves against the woods darkened by overcast […]

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 […]
