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 […]

Unnamed Tributary, en plein air

On a quiet sunny winter afternoon this little unnamed tributary surely had a lot to say, babbling along over rocks and shelves of slate and limestone on its way to Scrubgrass Creek a distance away. Off in the woods on January 12, 2012, I stood in the snow and painted a little pastel sketch as […]

Autumn Colors, En Plein Air, On the Trail

I played hooky today and ran off into the woods. Autumn has been developing most beautifully and I keep trying to find the time to get out there and have a few hours in the woods to paint and photograph and just walk barefoot on the trails at least one last time this year. A […]

Deserted Cottages, a Long-ago Image, and a Childhood Friend

Sometimes a painting holds far more than just the image, and connections that hold many people together, as these deserted cottages did in life, on paper, and inspiration.

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. […]

September Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Kelly in Warm Colors

This sketch is a sweet memory, still one of my favorites, and one through which I still feel a deep bond with Kelly. The sketch is from April 17, 2012, and the light is coming around to that angle now as the daylight approaches the same position a few weeks before the autumnal equinox as […]

An Original Sold, and Sometimes Customers Have the Darnedest Ideas

I love this painting, and I was determined it would only go to the most loving home. Three years later, finally, it did! And in a very interesting circumstance. A longtime friend and customer has commissioned a number of portraits for herself and to give to friends as well as purchased several original pieces of […]

A Cool and Leafy Spot at “A Bend in the Road”

In early June, on a lovely sunny day just about noon, I was leaving a morning event and on errands traveling the back roads just for fun, knowing this narrow back road had some wonderful spots. Here is one of them, “A Bend in the Road”. We never know what’s around that bend in the […]
