Clear Skies and Sunshine on a Bright Autumn Day

This painting was included in 2016: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail. Autumn along the trail is overwhelming with all the colors in the mix of trees and brush in the woods and on the hills. I took this photo years ago and finally painted it. So rich in detail, sun […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 26: Allegheny River Reflections, Pastel

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 […]

Taking Flight on a Summer Afternoon

Years ago I watched a documentary on the whooping crane, this huge, graceful white bird whose population had decreased to fewer than 20 birds from habitat loss and hunting by the early 1940s.

The Quiet of a Summer Field

It’s not about the trees and grass and sky, it’s not about what you can see, it’s about what you can’t see–the hush of a hilltop field on a summer afternoon, the whisper of a breeze, rustle of grass, one bird whistling, and that sense of eternity that I find in the quiet stillness of […]

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 […]

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 […]
