January Nature Desktop Calendar: Sycamore Moon

There are two large sycamore trees near the entrance of the Panhandle Trail, but because they are growing against a hill I don’t see them from this angle against the sky until I am headed back home, nearly at the trailhead, and often at dusk, especially the early dusk of a winter night.

Familiar Winter Scene

The graceful curve of the railroad tracks in any season, because I admire it all the time, is an inspiration to create. In the starkness of the snowy day, the minimized palette honestly black and white even in a photo, the trees rising straight up all around, marching up the steep hill toward the sky […]

Thoreau-inspired Winter Walks Holiday Cards

“Take long walks in stormy weather or through deep snows in the fields and woods, if you would keep your spirits up.” I realize that walking in cold temperatures and snow and ice are not what many people find a comforting thing to do, but I have always found the winter silence of the woods […]

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 […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: Allegheny River Reflections

I had had another autumn painting chosen for my October calendar, but was secretly hoping I’d paint one of the autumn views I had planned for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, and I did. This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk […]
