Don’t Miss the Show

The leaves are coloring more each day, it was frosty last night but today it’s sunny and will be a little warmer than the last few days. It’s the perfect time to hit the trail to slow down and see the show that nature produces each year, absolutely free. See that little patch of sun […]

October Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Allegro Moderato”

Some paintings wait decades to be painted, and when they have their chance they press on until they are fully realized. This was one of those paintings, one that monopolized the last four days of my life. I am not complaining in the least. My orange boy Allegro came to me in 1986 and left […]

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 […]

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 […]

August Nature Desktop Calendar: Evening Wildflowers

On a sweltering, sticky August evening I discovered an incredibly beautiful patch of native wildflowers intentionally seeded at Scott Conservancy Kane Woods. I forgot about sweaty hands and the pulse of the sun directly in my face because it was also touching each and every flower on that hillside, filling leaves and petals with brilliance. […]

A Very Special Commissioned Portrait, and a Review from the Recipient

I painted a very special portrait recently, special because it was commissioned as a gift for a friend’s significant birthday, a friend who I know as well, and because it was to include all the cats with whom she had shared her life to date AND include the red maple outside the window seen in […]
