Autumn Showers, the Magic of Birches

Near me, the leaves are beginning to change color in earnest, and autumn rain has been falling. In this experimental oil pastel from 2000, using oil pastels with turpentine to soften and blend them, I tried my best to capture that sense of the blazing white trunks and leaves against the woods darkened by overcast […]

Allegheny River Reflections

This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk through the park along the river on a beautiful autumn day and took as many photos as I could. The hill is very high and steep behind this row of trees and otherwise the hill comes […]

It’s Good to Love Your Work

I have grown to love this painting so much, and I chose it as my featured artwork for my fifth annual Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail exhibit. I’m framing it today in preparation for the event, and just enjoying my last look at it before it’s behind glass. I love tackling the complications of woodland […]

Favorite Photos for Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail

It was really the art that inspired me to have an exhibit of Panhandle Trail images during Rock the Quarry, but I have far more photos than paintings. I’ve used them as the basis for paintings, I’ve used them for graphic designs and websites totally unrelated to Panhandle, and I sell prints of them too. […]

I’m framing new artwork and making sure the older pieces are clean and neat, making prints of art and photos and packaging or framing them, plus […]
