The Inspiration of “A Bend in the Road”

June 1, 2014, 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 […]

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 […]

Spring Cleaning, a Little Magic and Memories

I regularly passed the backyard of an old farmhouse near me and was drawn at first by the forsythia, which was right on the edge of the road as I drove past, then as I slowed down I saw the colorful hanging laundry, always a favorite subject. That hazy spring sunlight with long shadows on […]

Frosty Morning, Just Before Sunrise

It looks like this out there this morning. The coldest, frostiest mornings always seem to come in January, right after all the warmth and color of the holiday season. I painted this in January 2012, standing at my bathroom window overlooking the back yard, the streets below me down to Main Street, and the hill […]

Walk in the Woods, Especially in Autumn

“Walk in the Woods”—that’s not just an idea, that’s an imperative! Take the time, go and do it! I’m so glad I did. Time was running out for the amazing leaf color in October 2022, and I’d really wanted to take some time more than once when the leaves were at their prime to at […]

“Winter Sunset Abstract,” Custom Commissioned Painting

Another customer sent me a photo of her custom commissioned painting on the wall in her house, and this is one I haven’t shared here before. Winter Sunset Abstract is a pastel on matboard, which I use sometimes for larger paintings. This painting is 24″ x 32″, and with an ice blue mat it’s 32″ […]

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 […]
