The Mourning Doves Are Biding Their Time

The sun is shining, the deep cold is lifting, and the mourning doves are just sitting quietly taking it all in. What do doves do all day? Just kind of hang out waiting for something to happen? The doves always seem to have some purpose beyond just sitting there, but sit they will for hours, […]

Frosty Morning, Just Before Sunrise

It looks like this out there this morning. The coldest, frostiest mornings always seem to come in January, right after all the warmth and color of the holiday season. I painted this in January 2012, standing at my window to sketch the basics but finishing from a photo, the light so fleeting. I look at […]

“Safe” in My Back Yard

Though they nibble on some of my favorite foods and flowers that grow in my back yard, I enjoy observing the two does who have visited for the past three years, sometimes with their boyfriend and sometimes with a fawn.

Autumn Still Lifes in Oil Pastel

I got to visit a few of my original paintings a few weeks ago 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 almost 20 years ago. It’s always interesting to see earlier works and […]

12 Sketches of Cats 2014 Calendar

Before we begin, let me note that this is a 2014 CALENDAR. Why am I trying to sell you a 2014 calendar? Because it was printed so that each image in the calendar is of framing quality. The calendar is outdated, but the 14 pieces of artwork will never go out of date, and if […]

The Colors of Autumn and Coming of Winter, “Autumn in the Valley”

Sloping hills blaze with autumn color at a rocky, rippled bend in Chartiers Creek, yet on the horizon deep gray-purple clouds hover; although the day was sunny I remember it being distinctly chilly with a sharpness to the breeze, especially on the water in a canoe, and winter is literally on the horizon. I took […]

Burnished Waves, Sold Original

Original paintings don’t sell too often so it’s always a celebration when I do. This painting was purchased by the person who bought most of my other waterscapes, and who grew up on the shores of this lake. This original pastel was painted en plein air as I stood on a beach at sunset on […]

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 […]

A Dozen Shades of Gray Anniversary, Art and Cats Transcend Language

June 5 is the fifth anniversary of creating this simple little monochromatic pastel sketch of Jelly Bean enjoying the view out the window with lots of different kinds of light on his fur. It’s still surprising to me that this has always been one of the most popular of all my daily sketches. At the […]
