I love woodland sunflowers. No matter how many I see, or how many photos I have, I can always find another interpretation of their exuberant yellow expansiveness. These three grew at the edge of the woods along the trial, and were caught by the sun on an August afternoon like a spotlight. They make everyone […]

These large and small keepsake boxes are detailed with prints of my artwork and specialty handpainted finishes that coordinate and make the box unique.

Summer Morning from the Deck, a Memory Painted in Midwinter

When I participated in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge last January I had prepared myself with reference photos I’d taken because I really wanted to paint them that could be done as a fairly quick sketch.

May Nature Desktop Calendar: Birth Root, Red Trillium

My May Nature Desktop Calendar is a few days late—because I couldn’t decide which wildflower to feature in the photo! May is all about wildflowers for me, each day a new flower blooming, everywhere you look, even the dandelions, I love them all. It’s so hard to think of only choosing one, but after four […]

Mother’s Day Gifts and Ideas

Felines and flowers seem to be my specialty, and don’t they both work well for Mother’s Day? I offer their inspirations all the time, but Mother’s Day is one of those special days when a love of animals and an enjoyment of flowers are what is first on the list. I do have a lot […]

Keepsakes Made from Vintage Cardboard Cigar Boxes

A month ago I posted a photo of my fine felines sitting atop a box of something that was soon to be another project, as soon as they processed the contents by sleeping on them. They handed those contents over to me I set aside this past weekend to get it done. More cigar box […]

Be Different!

If you’re going to stand out in a crowd, do it well. Just one white crocus among all the purples in my neighbor’s little garden. It appeared on its own a few years ago—this clump of crocuses were all purple for years, and I have the photos to prove it because I’ve photographed them just […]
