February Nature Desktop Calendar: Biding Time

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, moving only slightly, perhaps waiting for friends to join them. These doves are waiting in the maple tree outside my bedroom […]

Wrap-up From Original Art Sale

My Spring Cleaning Special Discount of 50% off original art was such an incredible success I can still hardly believe it. I sold 20 original paintings and sketches, and the net from these sales after shipping and other costs pretty much made up for the income from several vendor shows I missed last year. I’ve […]

50% Off on All Original Art Through March 31

“Summer Back Road” is only one of many small paintings in my collection, which, framed, cost $100 full price, and only $50.00, taxes and shipping included, with the discount.

February 2020 Personal Creative Challenge, Day 18: Curious Fawn

I’m back to a painting for this day of my creative challenge. For this painting I once again used self-prepared smooth deep charcoal matboard coated with my favorite transparent pastel ground, Golden Acrylic Ground for Pastels, so that I would start with a dark background. I painted it without any guidelines, just hitting the surface […]

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 […]

Whale Tail, a Tiny Linoleum Block Print

I love the photos of whale breaches that tell the “whale’s tale” and I wanted to find the essence of the moment, just the whale’s tail, the water and the sky. “Whale Tail II” is a simplified, iconic image of a whale’s tail breaching the waves with the clouds over the water in the background. […]

“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 […]

Yes? Tote, Summer Accessory or Reusable Shopping Bag

I’ve always wanted to see my lady leopard, “Yes?”, on a jute burlap bag. This line of shaped jute bags are more like purses than totes and very versatile. This vinyl-lined medium tote has sturdy handles and is a great summer accessory with a sundress or on a trip to the beach, and it’s also […]
