Dusk in the Woods

ABOUT THE ARTWORK That “blue time of day”…a quick walk in the woods after a heavy snowfall as clouds parted and the sun set on the distant horizon, bare trees like sentinels. This time of day always carries a certain melancholy for me, as if a deep instinctive part of me realizes the sun is […]

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 […]

Red

Virginia Creeper is festooned on a neighbor’s hemlock like a holiday garland, and just this past week it turned its characteristic bright, warm red. It’s considered a weed, but I find it essential to the autumn landscape because no other leaves are the same brilliance, and the berries feed birds and wildlife all winter. Sometimes […]

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 […]
