Autumn Rainbow

This is the colorful sugar maple that stands by Chartiers Creek on my way to Main Street. It’s like an old friend. I chose this angle because it had every color of leaf in it and filled the whole frame with just bits of that brilliant complementary blue autumn sky. Because the leaves are almost […]

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 […]

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.

My Studio Window in Autumn

All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because they sense my own enjoyment of what I’m doing, and for frightened fosters not only can they sense that but […]

A Walk to the Grocery Store

Some of my favorite photos ever, from last year on this day. I dropped my car off for inspection at a station just blocks from my house and took a morning walk from there to the grocery store on that dark and foggy morning. The sun rose and the fog lifted as I walked through […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: Allegheny River Reflections

I had had another autumn painting chosen for my October calendar, but was secretly hoping I’d paint one of the autumn views I had planned for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, and I did. This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk […]
