My Cats in the Sun Feline Votive

These four images are four early paintings inspired by my cats enjoying a spot of sun with a nap or a bath. They date from the early to mid-90s when I was working hard to refine my skills with pastel, with color, with shape and even the strokes in my paintings. I felt I really […]

From a Spontaneous Photo Shoot at Dusk to Holiday Cards

Holiday Greetings from the Backyard Birds

I truly love winter paintings because the light is wonderful without the shadows from trees, the reflections from the snow illuminating shadowed areas with soft purples and blues, and the patterns made by bare branches are mesmerizing.
