Nature and Wildlife Quarterly Sampler Box

I’m pleased with the idea of being able to give viewers an inexpensive sampling of what I sell. Shopping on the internet isn’t always easy, and for images and handmade goods, well, these are best seen in person. That leaves me with a very small audience, though. In the absence of being able to pick […]

Promises to Keep, #30in30, Day 16

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 16. This panting is named for the famous poem by Robert Frost, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, which was my first thought when I walked around a bend in the trail to see […]

Summer Morning from the Deck, #30in30 Day Two

I am participating in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge this month. This is my painting for day 2. This painting is one of those sweet familiar ones I’ve been wanting to paint for years: an early summer morning, hazy and bright, seen from my deck or through my kitchen window, geraniums in […]

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 […]

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 […]

Original Art 25% Off, a Few Samples

Purchasing a piece of original artwork for yourself or as a gift is no small decision because it’s generally no small expense. Prints are less expensive, but even if the print is excellent quality and identical dimensions of the original you don’t see the live work, the layers of paint or pastel, the actual lines […]

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 […]

Running Through the Woods, a Day I Love to Remember

Running Through the Woods, a Day I Love to Remember, a day in the woods and on the trail with my great-niece Cassidy and great-nephew Kyler from 2011.
