Kelly’s Morning Bath Linoleum Block Prints

I often feature “Kelly’s Morning Bath” […]

A Gentle, Quiet Snowfall

It isn’t always eternal summer on the trail, though memories might make us think so. Winter is my favorite season to paint. I love the subtleties of color and shape with snow in the air and on the ground, and on the trail I am often all alone with the quiet of a winter day, […]

“Bath” Decorative Dishes in Peach and Violet
