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 […]

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 […]

Harvest Still Lifes in Oil Pastel

I got to visit a few of my original paintings from the 90s last year when I visited a customer/friend’s home with some framing. These two paintings are “Squashes” and “Green Apples” painted in oil pastel back when I was first experimenting with them 20 years ago. It’s always interesting to see earlier works and […]
