Birches 2, Radiance, ink with watercolor washes

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

Evening Breeze on the Beach

No, I’m not on vacation, I painted this in 2000. I love that feeling of the breeze in the beach grasses, the sound of the waves breaking just over the dune, and the long and colorful shadows and warm sunlight, the day cooling as the sun begins to set. After the first time I visited […]

Harvest Still Lifes in Oil Pastel

I got to visit a few of my original paintings from the 90s last year when I visited a customer/friend’s home with some framing. These two paintings are “Squashes” and “Green Apples” painted in oil pastel back when I was first experimenting with them 20 years ago. It’s always interesting to see earlier works and […]

Ahhh, Summer, Geraniums and Parsley

Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter. In 2016, after my wild black cherry tree fell the year before and smashed […]

Sunset on the Bay, Watercolor

This original watercolor of beach houses on the Chesapeake Bay was painted from my own photos and memories. This is a view from Chincoteague Island across the Chesapeake Bay toward the mainland in Virginia. That stillness, that odd pink light of a sultry evening on the bay…the beach houses along the dock looked so puny […]

The Swimming Hole on a Hot Summer Afternoon

On a hot summer afternoon out on the trail, there is nothing more refreshing to me than wading into the deeper area of a stream and cooling off. This painting was actually visualized during one of the visits with my great nieces and nephews and I knew I’d have to paint it, but it came […]

The Quiet Presence of Water, The Silent Lake

From one of my trips an hour or so north to Presque Isle on Lake Erie, a beach, a horizon with water, and a big sky, I love it, no matter the weather. Storms had passed and left the sky overcast, but just as the sun dropped toward the horizon the light struggled through a […]
