November Colors

This is Chartiers Creek, a view from a bridge in late November, not quite winter but feeling so, yet the honeysuckle berries are bright in the sun and all the rushes, grasses and brambles bear a soft warmth, and lots of color. I painted it en plein air, stainding on the bridge on that bright […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink with watercolor washes

I remember, after I’d spent two weeks on the ink drawing that is the basis of this work, holding a wet brush full of yellow watercolor, not sure it was the right thing to do, and absolutely sure I’d screw it up if painted it in. I’m so glad I took the chance. We have […]

This painting may look like a recent Carnegie scene but it goes way back. I was just out of college and painted it long before I’d decided to devote  part of my career to art, and I marvel that I created this when I did, in 1983. We’ve had a very rainy October and very […]

There are birds fluttering and chipmunks racing back and forth across the porch, Fatso the squirrel runs up and down the tree now and then, butterflies and bees fly around, the leaves flutter in the breeze, now and then a car goes by, […]

A Simple Ink Sketch of Our Parents’ Home

I have profiles on a number of different art sites, and this customer found me on a site for local artists to list themselves so that local people wanting art, either existing or commissioned, could look for local artists. In this case parents were moving out of the family home and selling it, and the […]

Commissioned Home Paintings: A Unique Childhood Home, 1992

Sketches and paintings of homes were at one time a popular gift for children moving away, parents selling the big family home to downsize, or grandchildren who’d never seen the place but heard the stories. Photographing a home well enough to make it a framable portrait of the place is not an easy task as […]
