Sold Original: Emerging Spring

Emerging Spring was the featured artwork for this year’s Seasons on the Panhandle Trail exhibit. I had the feeling I would sell this original painting around Rock the Quarry this year, but I never take it for granted. There are a few people who have purchased different genres of my original art over the years, […]

June Nature Desktop Calendar: The Perfect Place

Just one little careful study of sun on the bench and flowers, from anothers’ garden. My own garden bench should be so well landscaped. I loved this scene and the way I managed to capture it with the coarse board I had prepared, but in the years since then I have found this little painting […]

April Nature Desktop Calendar: Emerging Spring

A scene tucked away along my favorite trail, I’ve visualized this spring painting for probably all the 20 years I’ve been walking this trail. Carefully tiptoeing through the brush at the edge of the opposite bank I leaned out, holding on to a sapling for balance, to see the suddenly brilliant mosses contrasting with the […]

New Painting, “Social Isolation”

It’s a phrase of the times, but it’s kind of how I always felt when I walked in the woods, and I always enjoyed that time alone with the trees and the shadows and the sun. Two years later, I finally had the chance to return to the woods in spring, after my hip replacement, […]

Along the Trail in “Spring Woods”

Off in the woods in early spring to photograph the fresh new wildflowers, I love the woods itself, damp, muddy, brown and green, the sunshine suddenly muted by young leaves, the very air a pale green, the water far below running fast with spring rains. This trail is the one I walk to photograph most […]

Signs of Spring, Pear Trees on Main Street

A familiar scene will change almost imperceptibly over time, and sometimes also suddenly and irrevocably. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street seems more colorful than usual with big clouds of soft white pear trees all along the street. Even though I painted this in 2003, it carries the memories of Carnegie’s Main […]

Morning Brilliance For Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on a perfect sunny May morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. […]

Three Spring Originals as a Group or in Pairs

Brighten up an area that needs a little springtime all year round! I love that bright spring green and the way shadows are shaped as the leaves begin to fill out the trees. I painted these three small pastels en plein air, in my back yard and walking around Carnegie. From the left they are: […]
