The Swimming Hole on a Hot Summer Afternoon

On a hot summer afternoon out on the trail, there is nothing more refreshing to me than wading into the deeper area of a stream and cooling off. This painting was actually visualized during one of the visits with my great nieces and nephews and I knew I’d have to paint it, but it came […]

Let’s Go For A Ride

When I was little I remember hearing, “Let’s go for a ride”. This meant going for a ride in the car to look at things, to see new places, and just to get out of the house, but usually it was to drive along country roads to look at the scenery. Funny how just riding […]

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 […]

Original Painting Sold: Summer Sunset, Robinson Run

I’m thrilled that this painting is now in a home that will love it as much as I do. This family had purchased another original as well as a couple of portraits from me—and adopted one of my rescued cats, so we have a friendship as well. We also share a love of trails and […]

A Peaceful, Quiet Sunset Cruise

I took the reference photo for this in 2005. It waited 12 years to be painted. It was indeed a sunset cruise…down Chartiers Creek on a perfect July evening. Not only the delicate light on the nearly still water and the clear sky gradating up to deep blue, but the curve of the hills on […]

Cool Off in a Summer Sunset

Imagine a summer afternoon so hot you had to soak yourself in the shallow stream in the woods to cool down after your day on the trail, cool water flowing around you, holding your place in the current, and watching the sun drop toward the horizon through the trees. What a great way to spend […]
