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 […]

Captivating Sycamore Moon

Today’s full moon is the last full moon of winter, when she sits like a pearl strung in a mesh of bare branches. This is most often called the Worm Moon, but I had always known it as the Sap Moon or the Sugar Moon because the sugar begins to flow in sugar maple trees […]

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 […]

“Safe” in Plain Sight

The deer were in my back yard this afternoon, well-camouflaged by the light and the muted colors. If you look closely, there are two in this photo. I had seen the most prominent one reclining on the ground, and all I had was my cell phone but I tiptoed around the side of the house […]

Plans For a New Year

My last year ended and new year began with sales of a few original paintings and sketches, including “Promises to Keep”, above, which I decided was a very fitting image to announce three plans for art and merchandise in the coming year. Selling an original painting opens up space in my studio, gallery and my […]

Original Painting Sold: April Cloud Study

I am so happy for this little painting, that it finally got to go home with someone. I painted it in 2013, en plein air, and decided to modify a frame to match it. Many people have looked at it, but until now no one even considered it. Once the weather turns warm and sunny […]

Original Painting Sold: Snow at Night

One of the paintings I sold this year, this one at the holiday season, “Snow at Night” went home with someone who loves it. I love all my paintings or I wouldn’t share them, but this one wasn’t a favorite at first. As soon as I finished it that January night in 2013 I thought […]

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 […]
