Summer Artwork: Sunset Cruise

I took the reference photo for this in 2005. It’s been waiting 12 years to be painted. It was indeed a sunset cruise…down Chartiers Creek on a perfect July evening. Not only the delicate light on the nearly still water and the clear sky gradating up to deep blue, but the curve of the hills […]

Let’s Go For A Ride

When I was little I remember hearing “Let’s go for a ride”. This meant going for a ride in the car to look at things, to see new places, and just to get out of the house, but usually it was to drive along country roads to look at the scenery. Funny how just riding […]

It’s Good to Love Your Work

I have grown to love this painting so much, and I chose it as my featured artwork for my fifth annual Seasons Along the Panhandle Trail exhibit. I’m framing it today in preparation for the event, and just enjoying my last look at it before it’s behind glass. I love tackling the complications of woodland […]

Running Through the Woods, a Day I Love to Remember

This painting was included in 2016: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail. It’s another one I’d been wanting to paint, a day in the woods and on the trail with my great-niece Cassidy and great-nephew Kyler from 2011, from the same visit where I got the reference photos for “The Swimming […]

The Sense of a Summer Field

It’s not about the trees and grass and sky, it’s not about what you can see, it’s about what you can’t see–the hush of a hilltop field on a summer afternoon, the whisper of a breeze as it cools your sun-warmed skin, rustles through the tall grass which ripples like waves, one bird whistling, the […]

Dusk After the Storm, Canoeing on a Local Creek

A storm overtook us as we paddled canoes and kayaks down Chartiers Creek one July evening. We took out and watched it from among trees on the bank as the world turned black then fogged with rain, lightning struck just over the hills around us and the creek ran faster and faster and rose foot […]

Facades, North Side Pittsburgh

This row of ancient buildings has been looking over the city of Pittsburgh for well over 100 years, and each owner through time has had their way with each facade. On a bright sunny summer day they stood unapologetic for crumbling insul-brick siding, replacement windows that didn’t fit the original opening, and grass growing where […]

Keeping Cool on a Hot Summer Afternoon

On a hot summer afternoon out on the trail, there is nothing more refreshing to me than wading into the deeper area of a stream and cooling off. This painting was actually visualized during one of the visits with my great nieces and nephews and I knew I’d have to paint it, but it came […]

Something About a Rainy Night

I love rainy dark streets with reflections on the wet pavement, and streetlights shining up the faces of buildings. This one, however, was all about that tall violet sky making the buildings and hills beyond look small, the clouds breaking apart after the sun had set, leaving a red glow in the clouds on the […]
