Spring Morning Leaves

Spring has reached that tipping point where there are more leaves in all shades of green than winter’s stark branches and twigs. I love winter, but I welcome spring, and this view out my kitchen window is familiar each April. It looks like I’m in the deep woods, but it’s just the line of trees […]

Nature and Wildlife Quarterly Sampler Box

I’m pleased with the idea of being able to give viewers an inexpensive sampling of what I sell. Shopping on the internet isn’t always easy, and for images and handmade goods, well, these are best seen in person. That leaves me with a very small audience, though. In the absence of being able to pick […]

Spring Cleaning, a Little Magic and Memories in the Air

I regularly passed the backyard of an old farmhouse near me, and was drawn at first by the forsythia, which was right on the edge of the road as I drove past, then as I slowed down I saw the colorful hanging laundry, always a favorite subject. That hazy spring sunlight with long shadows on […]

#30PaintingsIn30Days Review, #30in30

Well, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do a painting for each of the 30 days, but I did 14 new paintings, and they were 14 ideas I’d been wanting to paint for a while, so I consider that a success, for me. I had five more planned, but things get in […]

Rainy Violet Sunset, #30paintingsin30days, Day 22

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 22. I’m still tinkering with the title for this one because it’s also one of my Main Street paintings and I want to get “Main Street” in here somewhere. I have no idea when I […]

Promises to Keep, #30in30, Day 16

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 16. This panting is named for the famous poem by Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, which was my first thought when I walked around a bend in the trail to see […]

Curving Tracks, #30in30 Day Five

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 5. I took this photo a few years ago from an overpass and always wanted to sketch it in charcoal. The graceful curve of the tracks in any season, because I admire it all the […]

Summer Back Road, #30in30 Day Three

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 3. For me, almost any spot along winding, hilly back road through fields with old trees and fence posts is a worthy spot for painting. This is one of many I liked best of the […]

Summer Morning from the Deck, #30in30 Day Two

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 2. This painting is one of those sweet familiar ones I’ve been wanting to paint for years: an early summer morning, hazy and bright, seen from my deck or through my kitchen window, geraniums in […]

Winter Sunset, After Rothko, #30in30 Day One

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 1, which was January 1, but I just got a chance to scan and post it. It’s actually the sunset reflected on the eastern horizon, but I guess it could be the western sky as […]
