Warm Winter Sun, a Colorful Nap

Some of my cats have inspired several paintings, others in the planning stages, others, no paintings yet, sometimes it’s all up to how much time I have to work. But some of my cats have inspired more paintings than others, and Namir was one of them. Something about his demeanor and deportment, his confident self-possession, […]

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.

Warm Spots on the Coldest Days, Late Winter Sunbath

I’d always wanted to paint this photo of my orange boy, Allegro. I took the photo in 1993 or 1994 and painted it in 2017, and it was on my mind all that time. I wanted not so much to paint a portrait of Allegro as I wanted to capture that moment that was so […]

50% Off on All Original Art

My physical recovery from my hip replacement has been a breeze, but my financial recovery has been moving a little more slowly as I wait for show season to arrive.

One of the things that’s always drawn me out into nature is the free flower show each year from the first thaw to the last frost.

“In Afternoon Sun” Cabochon and Gift Box

We are looking forward to sunnier days. Mewsette and Mimi enjoyed the sun on the studio windowsill in June 2012, one of my favorite daily sketches combining ink brush pen to capture the deep shadows and bright highlights on the girls and watercolor spatters to capture the sun in the leaves of the maple tree […]

Featured Gallery: Dramatic Light

It’s hard to believe I captured these stunning photos on a morning in March! Really, it was March 10, 2017 when I raced to capture the sun breaking through heavy clouds after a snow and ice storm the night before. When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each […]

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 […]
