View from Beechwood, Acrylic and Ink

This painting may look like a recent Carnegie scene but it goes way back, 34 years to be exact. I was just out of college and painted it long before I’d decided to devote  part of my career to art, and I marvel that I created this when I did, in 1983. This was a […]

September Nature Desktop Calendar: Autumn Rainbow

I’ve been waiting for this photo to come around so I could share it as my monthly desktop calendar. Since I alternate art and photos, September is the month for a photo, and though this is an October photo, September is the month we mark the coming of autumn and I’m looking forward to the […]

A Crisp Autumn Day on the Panhandle Trail

I painted this scene for my August 2014 exhibit “Sun Shadow Ice & Snow: Seasons of the Panhandle Trail” during Rock the Quarry, the annual fundraiser for the Panhandle Trail. This painting doesn’t have as big of a story as others, but I will say it’s hard to paint along the trail in autumn—or anywhere […]

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 […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

I’m so excited to offer an image that is so dear to me—one of my cats on my studio windowsill. 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 […]

Autumn Showers, the Magic of Birches

From the time I met the paper birch in our front yard I have always been attracted to the delicately detailed white bark of birch trees which seemed to emit its own faint light in any season. Here, in the darkness of the woods, the grouping of white trunks looks like a crowd clustered for […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

We have lovely birch groves here in Western Pennsylvania, and this image was reminiscent of one I had encountered while walking through the woods somewhere near me. Not just the white bark, but the contrast with the thin dark twigs and ripples in the bark, is eye-catching, and that autumn display of yellow leaves is […]

The Deserted Cottages, Recalling a Long-ago Image, and a Friend

Sometimes a painting holds far more than just the image, and connections that hold many people together. In October 2011 I posted the original of this painting of deserted cottages along Lake Erie, and told of memories of my mother, selling her house, and finding a “cardboard painting” from my childhood that had clearly been […]

October Featured Landscape and Desktop Calendar: “Red”

Sometimes the scene is just visually stunning, especially with a little flash of angled late afternoon sun on that bright red Virginia Creeper. Love the peeling paint, the weathered wood, gentle dappled and reflected autumn light, cloudy windows and rusty chipping door hinge. Yet the creeper and the old garage have their own ways of […]
