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, […]

Nature’s Little Gifts, “Unexpected Berries” Holiday Cards

Walking in the quiet of a winter day I see some of the most beautiful scenes, from my own back yard, to my neighborhood, town, trails and woods. My joy is to bring not just the scene but the entire milieu back to my studio in an image—a tall order for a photograph or painting, […]

Stars of Wonder, Serious and Silly

We don’t really celebrate any one tradition for the winter holidays, but we enjoy sharing traditions of all our friends.
