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 […]

December Nature Desktop Calendar: Accent

Cardinals brighten my back yard all year round, and are especially brilliant on a snowy day. My back yard is a registered Backyard Wildlife Habitat and I have let brush and brambles fill in at the corners; this cardinal is in a tangle of wild grapevines with a fresh fall of snow. This was done […]

Nature and Wildlife Quarterly Sampler Box

I’m pleased with the idea of being able to give viewers an inexpensive sampling of what I sell. Shopping on the internet isn’t always easy, and for images and handmade goods, well, these are best seen in person. That leaves me with a very small audience, though.

Frosted, Fairyland

When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each branch and twig in the tree outside my window I knew what my destiny would be if the snow stopped and the sun came out. It did, and I headed for the Panhandle Trail, on foot just planning about an […]
