Dusk in the Woods

I took the reference photos for this painting on January 30, 2005, so it’s an anniversary of sorts. It’s a painting of the woods in snow, but in addition to how I love snow and to be in the woods, it’s also deeply connected to several other things in my life in a special way. […]

Featured Gallery: Dramatic Light

It’s hard to believe I captured these stunning photos on a morning in March! Really, it was March 10, 2017 when I raced to capture the sun breaking through heavy clouds after a snow and ice storm the night before. When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each […]

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 […]

Curving Tracks in the Snow

We have just enough snow that the landscape is changed to nearly black and white, clear contrasts and every little branch with its tiny frosting of snow. Driving errands today I loved the look and remembered this sketch. The graceful curve of the tracks in any season, because I admire it all the time, is […]

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 […]

February Featured Nature Artwork, Register for a Free Print

When a bunch of blue jays get together, you know it. This one particular section of the mulberry tree in my backyard is a favorite place for jam sessions. I saw this group in the bare branches, noising it out like a random atonal brass quintet, and went to get my pastels and paper to […]

Promises to Keep

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. Excerpt from Robert Frost, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” from The Poetry of Robert Frost, edited by Edward Connery Lathem. Copyright 1923, © 1969 by Henry […]
