Winter Birds, Framed Set

In winter I have feeders visible from just about every window. Watching the birds gather, mill about, eat, leave is like watching waves or fire, the constant motion mesmerizing and meditative. I visualized these sketches over years looking out my doors and windows at the birds gathering on my walk or in my trees, and […]

“Safe” in Plain Sight

The deer were in my back yard this afternoon, well-camouflaged by the light and the muted colors. If you look closely, there are two in this photo. I had seen the most prominent one reclining on the ground, and all I had was my cell phone but I tiptoed around the side of the house […]

December Nature Desktop Calendar: Snow at Night

What looks more warm and welcoming in this month of holidays and celebrations than a home with warm yellow windows on a snowy night? From the window at the back of my house I can see out over the valley and the hill beyond. When it snows at night the scene is transformed from black […]

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 […]

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 […]
