Familiar Winter Scene

The graceful curve of the railroad tracks in any season, because I admire it all the time, is an inspiration to create. In the starkness of the snowy day, the minimized palette honestly black and white even in a photo, the trees rising straight up all around, marching up the steep hill toward the sky […]

Two Summer Waterscapes from Canoeing on My Local Creek, 25% Off

From photos taken while canoeing on Chartiers Creek on hot summer nights a decade or more ago, I still remember that perfect sunset and the still water at that bend in the creek, and the storm that crashed through and left a delicate pink mist in the air. I also remember painting each one and […]

Holiday Greetings from the Backyard Birds

I truly love winter paintings because the light is wonderful without the shadows from trees, the reflections from the snow illuminating shadowed areas with soft purples and blues, and the patterns made by bare branches are mesmerizing. This set of four paintings of birds are ones I’d done “from life”, actually standing at a window […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

Allegheny River Reflections

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 […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: Deserted Cottages

I painted this 20 years ago, and still, each time I look at it, I see something new. And I can see the leaves flutter, watch the shadows trace over the cottages, hear the grass whisper in the breeze and the waves break on the beach. It’s on the short list of favorites of my […]
