From a Spontaneous Photo Shoot at Dusk to Holiday Cards

I was hoping for a fantastic sunset as I drove home from errands, but no luck tonight. With a light dusting of snow, a gentle snowfall began again as dusk began to fall, and the clouds remained resolutely solid gray.

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. This set of four paintings of birds are ones I’d done “from life”, actually standing at a window […]

Colorful Little Crabapples on a November Day, “Unexpected Berries” Holiday Cards

Bright and Colorful Handprinted Tabbies Note Cards

The stripes made me do it! No, we have not always been a household of solid-color cats.

These cards were block printed, a technique […]

I’ll Always Remember the Way You Looked at Me

Namir turns his gaze up to me, enchanting me with his “bedroom eyes” as we spent a morning in the garden. To visitors and to me, once he was sure he had you under his spell he turned on those famous bedroom eyes, narrowing them just enough so they looked mysteriously slanted and angling up […]

Peaches and Peonies, a Celebration of Spring Flowers and Sunlight, and a Certain Calico Cat

My old-fashioned pink peonies are fervently blooming this year, since we’ve lost a tree and they finally have enough light to really show off. Those aren’t the peonies in this painting, but any time I see peonies I think of Peaches and the moment I saw her bathing on the table in that sweet spring […]
