April 8, 2006, the Day I Took the Photo of “Blue and Yellow”

I download my photos from my DSLR into daily folders named with the date and today I happened to be in the folder for April 6, 2006 and saw the photo that became the reference for this painting. Yes, it’s that magic light as the angle of the sun rises and sunlight reaches way into […]

A Framed Print of “Blue and Yellow”

I like wide mats around small paintings, especially highly detailed small paintings. It helps to isolate them so there is less visual competition, and it makes something small seem like a bigger deal. The person who purchased the original of this painting didn’t want the original 16″ x 16″ white frame and mat. I chose […]

Subtle Colors Under Overcast Skies: Biding Time

February may be the shortest month, but it seems the longest in its often dull, overcast days when winter seems to have overstayed her welcome. Imagine that waiting game for the wildlife in our midst. The mourning doves are just sitting quietly, taking it all in, possibly knowing that, in time, this too shall pass. […]

Winter Birds, Framed Set

In winter I have feeders visible from just about every window. Watching the birds gather, mill about, eat, leave is like watching waves or fire, the constant motion mesmerizing and meditative. I visualized these sketches over years looking out my doors and windows at the birds gathering on my walk or in my trees, and […]

This could be anywhere, but Carnegie really is a place where people still use their backyards to hang laundry, including me. And it really is my neighbor’s laundry in the back yard on a lovely summer morning. I […]

“Discovery” Poster, Plaque or Print

I took a little side trip into the woods today. The trees are suddenly nearly in full leaf and in today’s sunny warmth the path has the feel of a summer afternoon. I took a few photos, of course, but I have so many already, as well as paintings. For Earth Day 2017 I designed […]

A Block Print for Eagles Hatching

Watching the eagles busy at their local nests, keeping house, feeding, hatching their eggs, it’s time to share this print. This linoleum block print captures the moment of landing for an eagle, head pressed forward, eyes focused, talons extended ready to capture the branch, wings extended, all feathers unfurled to put on the breaks for […]

Watching Birds in Snow

These birds were actually pecking around in the snow under a bird feeder, but their random order and little shadows were intriguing. This was done en plein air—but not outside so I wouldn’t cause the birds to fly off. In winter I have feeders visible from just about every window. Watching the birds gather, mill […]

The Mourning Doves Are Biding Their Time

The sun is shining, the deep cold is lifting, and the mourning doves are just sitting quietly taking it all in. What do doves do all day? Just kind of hang out waiting for something to happen? The doves always seem to have some purpose beyond just sitting there, but sit they will for hours, […]
