Running Through the Woods, a Day I Love to Remember

This painting was included in 2016: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail. It’s another one I’d been wanting to paint, a day in the woods and on the trail with my great-niece Cassidy and great-nephew Kyler from 2011, from the same visit where I got the reference photos for “The Swimming […]

Peaches and Peonies, a Celebration of Spring Flowers and Sunlight, and a Certain Calico Cat

My old-fashioned pink peonies are fervently blooming this year, since we’ve lost a tree and they finally have enough light to really show off. Those aren’t the peonies in this painting, but any time I see peonies I think of Peaches and the moment I saw her bathing on the table in that sweet spring […]

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 […]

Welcome Spring I hope your new year has started off well and continues that way. Even though the time change has thrown me off, I can still enjoy the lengthening days, the warmer sunshine, the emerging green of spring. No matter how many times I see life reawaken after winter it is still a miracle. […]

Colorful Kelly, a Little Surprise of Color

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk, I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]

Watching Birds in Snow

These birds were actually pecking around in the snow under a bird feeder, but their random order and little shadows were intriguing. This was done en plein air—but not outside so I wouldn’t cause the birds to fly off. In winter I have feeders visible from just about every window. Watching the birds gather, mill […]

A Colorful View of Winter

This painting is entitled “Colorful”, 11″ x 15″, done in soft pastel on self-prepared board with marble dust and gesso. “Colorful” is one of my favorite duck images on Chartiers Creek from my walks to Main Street. I took the photo several years ago of the mallard balancing on one leg with morning sun reflecting […]
