A Sweet Summer Memory: Geraniums and Parsley

An artist in one of the groups I post in said she could feel the “absolute joy” in this painting. Yes, the exuberance of nature on a beautiful summer day, and my joy at even just a little bit of life and color to be inspired by in the year I didn’t have a garden. […]

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 […]

It’s That Time Again: Geraniums and Parsley

Typically when I look out my back door I see my big vegetable garden, lots of perennial flowers and wildflowers, and my everlasting pink and red geraniums, some of which are 15 years old and saved in the basement each winter.

February 2018 #30PaintingsIn30Days Review

I jumped into this painting challenge when it was halfway through, and even at the best of times a new painting every other day is about as much as I can do. I had planned on participating but found out about the cat show February 10-11 and decided to sign up as a vendor. I […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 22: 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 […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 21: Summer Sunset, Robinson Run

I love tackling the complications of woodland and water. So much detail and color, yet I want to simplify, share what I feel instead of everything I see. This photo was from an August visit to the Panhandle Trail when I decided to cool off before I went home in the evening with a little […]
