Some Sales to Celebrate!

These paintings all sold at this year’s Bog/Bird Art Show at Volo Bog. I wasn’t sure how the show would go this year. To be safe, we did not have a reception and I think many people in the community are continuing to stay home. And yet, the show was a great success with aContinue reading “Some Sales to Celebrate!”

The Daily Painting Movement

Not long ago I heard about The Daily Painting Movement, and was intrigued. Not only is it an inspiring movement, but there is a website dedicated to it called Daily Paintworks. I jumped in and love participating. It is a wonderful way to push my creativity and to highlight bits of nature that I loveContinue reading “The Daily Painting Movement”

Fires were used to keep downContinue reading “Humans Co-creating with Nature”

Mourning Cloak on Felled Birch “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.” ~Rabindranath Tagore I looked through my records, and it doesn’t appear that I have ever posted this painting so I thought I would this morning. Some years ago we had a remarkably warm December and I went out toContinue reading “A Butterfly Moment”

Blue Camassia in the Garden

Blue Camassia There is a sort of dreamy quality that emerged when I was working on this painting that I quite like. I’ve been wanting to infuse my work with excitement and, for me, this is what that looks like. When I started my garden I was under the impression that both of these plantsContinue reading “Blue Camassia in the Garden”
