In early June, on a lovely sunny day just about noon, I was leaving a morning event and on errands traveling the back roads just for fun, knowing this narrow back road had some wonderful spots. Here is one of them, “A Bend in the Road”. We never know what’s around that bend in the […]

My First Solo Art Exhibit, 20 Years Ago Today

November Colors

This is Chartiers Creek, a view from a bridge in late November, not quite winter but feeling so, yet the honeysuckle berries are bright in the sun and all the rushes, grasses and brambles bear a soft warmth, and lots of color. I painted it en plein air, stainding on the bridge on that bright […]
