Spring Cleaning, a Little Magic and Memories in the Air

I regularly passed the backyard of an old farmhouse near me, and was drawn at first by the forsythia, which was right on the edge of the road as I drove past, then as I slowed down I saw the colorful hanging laundry, always a favorite subject. That hazy spring sunlight with long shadows on […]

The Sun and Mist, Spring Comes to a Bend in the Creek

No leaves on the trees yet, but strong spring sun fills the misty air as the creek rushes by with its spring volume. Rain and snowmelt rush over rocks and gravel and hurry around the bend, the sycamores reflecting white in the stark early morning sunlight, a little bit of mist wafting among the trees. […]

Winter Sunset Reflections on Leaving the Trail

I painted this scene for my August exhibit “Sun Shadow Ice & Snow: Seasons of the Panhandle Trail” during Rock the Quarry, the annual fundraiser for the Panhandle Trail. I decided to do this painting at pretty much the last minute, though I’d been visualizing it for years. The scene is one I’ve often seen […]

February 2018 #30PaintingsIn30Days Review

I jumped into this painting challenge when it was halfway through, and even at the best of times a new painting every other day is about as much as I can do. I had planned on participating but found out about the cat show February 10-11 and decided to sign up as a vendor. I […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 24: Dusk After the Storm

A storm overtook us as we paddled canoes and kayaks down Chartiers Creek one July evening. We took out and watched it from among trees on the bank as the world turned black then fogged with rain, lightning struck just over the hills around us and the creek ran faster and faster and rose foot […]

#30paintingsin30days, Day 21: Summer Sunset, Robinson Run

I love tackling the complications of woodland and water. So much detail and color, yet I want to simplify, share what I feel instead of everything I see. This photo was from an August visit to the Panhandle Trail when I decided to cool off before I went home in the evening with a little […]

January Nature Desktop Calendar: Sycamore Moon

There are two large sycamore trees near the entrance of the Panhandle Trail, but because they are growing against a hill I don’t see them from this angle against the sky until I am headed back home, nearly at the trailhead, and often at dusk, especially the early dusk of a winter night. Because the […]

Familiar Winter Scene

The graceful curve of the railroad tracks in any season, because I admire it all the time, is an inspiration to create. In the starkness of the snowy day, the minimized palette honestly black and white even in a photo, the trees rising straight up all around, marching up the steep hill toward the sky […]
