View from Beechwood, A LIttle Time Capsule

This painting may look like a recent Carnegie scene but it goes way back. I was just out of college and painted it long before I’d decided to devote  part of my career to art, and I marvel that I created this when I did, in 1983. We’ve had a very rainy October and very […]

Birches 2, Radiance, ink and watercolor

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 […]

My Studio Window in Autumn

All the years I’ve been here I’ve loved my time in my studio, which was also once my foster room. I often remark how my cats enjoy spending time with me in my studio because they sense my own enjoyment of what I’m doing, and for frightened fosters not only can they sense that but […]

Don’t Miss the Show

The leaves are coloring more each day, it was frosty last night but today it’s sunny and will be a little warmer than the last few days. It’s the perfect time to hit the trail to slow down and see the show that nature produces each year, absolutely free. See that little patch of sun […]

Autumn Showers, the Magic of Birches

Near me, the leaves are beginning to change color in earnest, and autumn rain has been falling. In this experimental oil pastel from 2000, using oil pastels with turpentine to soften and blend them, I tried my best to capture that sense of the blazing white trunks and leaves against the woods darkened by overcast […]

Allegheny River Reflections

This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk through the park along the river on a beautiful autumn day and took as many photos as I could. The hill is very high and steep behind this row of trees and otherwise the hill comes […]

Red

Individual leaves of Virginia Creeper are beginning to turn its characteristic bright, warm red here and there. It’s considered a weed, but I find it essential to the autumn landscape because no other leaves are the same brilliance, and the berries feed birds and wildlife all winter. Sometimes the scene is just visually stunning, especially […]

October Nature Desktop Calendar: Deserted Cottages

I painted this 20 years ago, and still, each time I look at it, I see something new. And I can see the leaves flutter, watch the shadows trace over the cottages, hear the grass whisper in the breeze and the waves break on the beach. It’s on the short list of favorites of my […]

Autumn Rainbow

This is the colorful sugar maple that stands by Chartiers Creek on my way to Main Street. It’s like an old friend. I chose this angle because it had every color of leaf in it and filled the whole frame with just bits of that brilliant complementary blue autumn sky. Because the leaves are almost […]
