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. I took […]

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 […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 26: Allegheny River Reflections, Pastel

This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk through the park along the river on a beautiful autumn day and took as many photos as I could. The hill is very high and steep behind this row of trees and otherwise the hill comes […]

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 […]

Keep the Colors of Summer With the Summer Nature and Wildlife Sampler Box

I’m happy to see gold-toned autumn colors creep into the local palette of trees and wildflowers, but the blues and pinks and bright greens of summer seem to leave too soon. That June morning when I found the back road in “A Bend in the Road”, the July morning I photographed the angel amid the […]

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 […]

August Nature Desktop Calendar: The Swimming Hole

For the last full month of summer I had to share the cool, the green, the rippling waves and sunshine of “The Swimming Hole”. Even today, 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. I […]

Summer Morning from the Deck, a Memory Painted in Midwinter

When I participated in Leslie Saeta’s annual “30 in 30” painting challenge last January I had prepared myself with reference photos I’d taken because I really wanted to paint them that could be done as a fairly quick sketch. Often those quick sketches are really familiar things, like this view out my kitchen door, over […]
