May Nature Desktop Calendar: Social Isolation

When I considered which image to feature for May I decided it had to be my newest painting, “Social Isolation”.  Even through May the trees still haven’t fully leafed out, and at least at the moment we are still socially isolating.

Join Me for A Virtual Earth Day Celebration

It’s pretty apparent that I’m inspired by the earth herself and all her gifts. I remember the first Earth Day 50 years ago though I was only nine years old because it was such an accomplishment and was so big in the news. That was reinforced by all the changes I saw immediately following in […]

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 […]

Healing, Now and For the Future | Paths I Have Walked

April 3 was the six-month anniversary of my hip replacement surgery, a condition and event that totally changed my way of living and income over the course of two years. At this point I am as good as healed and have been working on getting back to “normal”, but that normal doesn’t exist right now, […]
