“Safe” in Plain Sight

All summer long the deer are pretty well camouflaged by all the leaves and dappled shadows from the trees. But suddenly most of the leaves have fallen, yet the deer think they are still well hidden. It’s kind of funny. That was where the idea for this painting “Safe” originated. Though they nibble on some […]

Wildflowers and Butterflies of the Panhandle Trail Pendants, and a Discount Through August 31

The cabochon pendants I’d made for my Seasons of the Panhandle Trail exhibit sold so well the first day that I made another set the next morning! Sunflowers and sweet peas, daisies and St. John’s Wort, and butterflies, in all the colors of summer! Above is a photo of the Panhandle Trail Collection of cabochons. […]

Birds and Butterflies and Wildflowers Cabochon Pendants, and a Discount Through August

I chose a dozen designs for new cabochons inspired by nature, from my gardens to the woods and trails. All are made from my photographs of butterflies, garden flowers, wildflowers and a hummingbird too—they were popular enough that several of then sold already at my open house this weekend but that just means I’ll be […]

Yes? Tote, Summer Accessory or Reusable Shopping Bag

I’ve always wanted to see my lady leopard, “Yes?”, on a jute burlap bag. This line of shaped jute bags are more like purses than totes and very versatile. This vinyl-lined medium tote has sturdy handles and is a great summer accessory with a sundress or on a trip to the beach, and it’s also […]

Tired of Winter, Join This Gull

What can you say about gulls that is unique, since this is pretty much what they do all day? I’ve done a few other gull paintings and intend to do a few more, but unless I start numbering them I have to find something about this gull, “[Adjective] Gull”, that will make this painting different […]

February Nature Desktop Calendar: Sparkling Gems

The reference photo for this painting was taken on a bright January day with lots of snow cover, and waited about five years to be painted. The mallards were floating on Chartiers Creek where it flows under Main Street on my walk to the bank and post office. The water is shallow there, and with […]
