Yes, it’s time for a little dreaming about warm, sunny mornings in the garden among the flowers. The cards are designed from those photos of my garden and yard and my walks along trails and natural areas for birthdays, friendship, sympathy, thank you, get well and more, blank inside, with matching envelope. And if you […]

A Gift for the Gardener, “The Perfect Place” Keepsake Box

Just one little careful study of sun on the bench and flowers, from anothers’ garden. My own garden bench should be so well landscaped. Use it to hold seed packets, or your own collection of heritage seeds, gloves and small tools, or small books and notes to have handy when planning next year’s garden so […]

Stock Up on Gift Bags for the Holidays

Holiday gift giving is beginning and a gift bag with art the recipient will appreciate makes the gift even that much more special. I have dozens of designs that feature cats, dogs, flowers, butterflies and birds, and nature, and a quantity discount for purchasing three or six bags. From the first time I received a […]

I Just Can’t Keep the Cat Out of the Picture

It was just meant to be the flowers and the cloth, but around my house it’s hard to keep the cat out of the picture. A customer stopped by to pick up her portrait and noticed this painting quietly hanging on my wall by the door and I realized I’ve never featured it! In fact, […]

#30paintingsin30days Day 15: Poppies

Just some bright orange poppies in the sun on a summer afternoon. I took photos of a neighbor’s garden and intentionally angled one of them to have the poppies grouped against a dark background with no leaves or buds and as few stems as possible, and no black centers, just a big mass of orange, […]

Keep the Colors of Summer With the Summer Nature and Wildlife Sampler Box

I’m happy to see gold-toned autumn colors creep into the local palette of trees and wildflowers, but the blues and pinks and bright greens of summer seem to leave too soon. That June morning when I found the back road in “A Bend in the Road”, the July morning I photographed the angel amid the […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 2: Geraniums and Parsley

I’m working on my spatters. I think they worked pretty well here. Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. This year, […]

Three Sunflowers, Waiting to Meet You

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 […]
