Let’s Go For A Ride

When I was little I remember hearing, “Let’s go for a ride”. This meant going for a ride in the car to look at things, to see new places, and just to get out of the house, but usually it was to drive along country roads to look at the scenery. Funny how just riding […]

A Bend in the Road, a Moment in June

In early June, on a lovely sunny day just about noon, I was leaving a morning event and on errands traveling the back roads just for fun, knowing this narrow back road had some wonderful spots. Here is one of them, “A Bend in the Road”. We never know what’s around that bend in the […]

Everyone Is Going On Vacation And I Want To Be Where That Gull Is Standing

Really, it’s true, I just decided to be honest with the title. The seagull is standing on a beach on Hilton Head Island and I’d like to be there at just about any point, weather conditional. I took photos of the beach in Savannah when I visited my niece in 2016 and for the daily […]

Along the Trail in “Spring Woods”

Off in the woods in early spring to photograph the fresh new wildflowers, I love the woods itself, damp, muddy, brown and green, the sunshine suddenly muted by young leaves, the very air a pale green, the water far below running fast with spring rains. This trail is the one I walk to photograph most […]

Looking Out on “Spring”

Sally looks out over a blooming yard to a deep spring landscape of Western Pennsylvania. “Spring” is the first of a quartet of paintings I was commissioned to paint to fit into a handmade frame featuring each of the four seasons. My customer loved white cats, and wanted to feature a white cat in there […]

Lilacs and Laundry in My Back Yard

It’s warm and sunny enough to hang out the laundry once again, and the lilacs I had to cut back after trees fell on them have grown and will bloom again this year. My yard is beginning to feel complete again! This painting always reminds me of those first spring mornings when it’s warm and […]

Greetings From Our Backyard Bunny

Whichever holiday you observe, we hope you have a blessed celebration with family and friends and lots of good food! This is one of our backyard bunnies from back in 2014. I’d been watching them since early morning in my yard and the neighbor’s, the grass bright green and the sun shining warm through their […]

Signs of Spring, Pear Trees on Main Street

A familiar scene will change almost imperceptibly over time, and sometimes also suddenly and irrevocably. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street seems more colorful than usual with big clouds of soft white pear trees all along the street. Even though I painted this in 2003, it carries the memories of Carnegie’s Main […]
