Winter Sunset Reflections on Leaving the Trail

I painted this scene for my August exhibit “Sun Shadow Ice & Snow: Seasons of the Panhandle Trail” during Rock the Quarry, the annual fundraiser for the Panhandle Trail. I decided to do this painting at pretty much the last minute, though I’d been visualizing it for years. The scene is one I’ve often seen […]

Featured Gallery: Dramatic Light

It’s just a year since that incredible morning, March 10, when I raced to capture the sun breaking through heavy clouds after a snow and ice storm the night before. When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each branch and twig in the tree outside my window I […]

Sun Shadow Ice & Snow 2017 Exhibit

I’ve been visiting the Panhandle Trail since 2002 with my bike and on foot, for exercise and inspiration, more inspiration than exercise, packing in with backpacks of camera equipment and art supplies. I’ve taken thousands of photos along the trail and off in the woods, but I’ve also done a number of sketches while there […]

Summers Years Ago, “The Rope Swing”

A Gentle, Quiet Snowfall

It isn’t always eternal summer on the trail, though memories might make us think so. Winter is my favorite season to paint. I love the subtleties of color and shape with snow in the air and on the ground, and on the trail I am often all alone with the quiet of a winter day, […]

Winter Sunset Reflections, Simple, Simply Memorable

The scene is one I’ve often seen along the trail on a winter evening. This painting was done from a photo I’d taken one of those winter evenings on the trail, a clear, cold day with a cloudless sky at sunset, the sky reflected on Robinson Run. The velvety darkness of the land contrasts so […]
