Let’s Go For A Ride

When I was little I remember hearing, “Let’s go for a ride”. This meant going for a ride in the car to look at things, to see new places, and just to get out of the house, but usually it was to drive along country roads to look at the scenery. Funny how just riding […]

Along the Trail in “Spring Woods”

Off in the woods in early spring to photograph the fresh new wildflowers, I love the woods itself, damp, muddy, brown and green, the sunshine suddenly muted by young leaves, the very air a pale green, the water far below running fast with spring rains. This trail is the one I walk to photograph most […]

Upcoming Exhibit: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail, August 23 and 24

NOTE: I had planned this year’s exhibit in early spring, well before I learned my hip was on its way out for usefulness and needed to be replaced, planned for October. As the exhibit drew near I found I couldn’t print and frame all the photos I’d intended, so I decided to save that idea […]

Open Water – Today

I found open water and lots of color even though it’s still just early March. Sometimes I need to awaken my creative senses with a taste of the natural world. Often these aren’t planned excursions but extemporaneous visits to places I know well while I’m running errands. I return with more than I’d set out […]

A Peaceful, Quiet Sunset Cruise

I took the reference photo for this in 2005. It waited 12 years to be painted. It was indeed a sunset cruise…down Chartiers Creek on a perfect July evening. Not only the delicate light on the nearly still water and the clear sky gradating up to deep blue, but the curve of the hills on […]

February Featured Nature Artwork, Register for a Free Print

When a bunch of blue jays get together, you know it. This one particular section of the mulberry tree in my backyard is a favorite place for jam sessions. I saw this group in the bare branches, noising it out like a random atonal brass quintet, and went to get my pastels and paper to […]
