What are YOU expecting? Thoughts for the start of a New Year…

marshwalkway

“Expecting” is one of many paintings I created during the summer of 2016. But this one was special. I painted it with a friend in mind. A friend who was expecting. Expecting. Hoping. Dreaming. But with a heart that was understandably guarded. A heart that had been on this same course before, but disappointed many times. […]

Shadows with a plan. (February calendar!)

Coneflower is part of my “Sad Flower” series — a series of four botanical paintings, representing four heavy-hearted flowers I found growing in various locations. In the twelve-plus-years I’ve been painting, I have never created a “sad series.” I guess I’d never felt such a heaviness of heart before as when I was planing this new group of […]

Labor Day 2009: Sandy Sheets for a Greater Good—

I do not like sand in my bed. I do like crisp clean sheets, multiple throw pillows, and a dust ruffle.

The Sunflower Story: Our Final Chapter

 Sunflower is now packed up and moved out.

Thank you Sunflower friends, for creating such an interesting and beautiful memory. Our […]

My painting “Sunflower Field” was the image that was chosen to promote the show this year. It was on everything — signs,  posters, bags… all of which I was asked to autograph throughout both […]

Too much of a good thing. (A lot of overgrown Camellias)

It appears we are moving. I fell in love with a little house that is right across the street from my shop. And then Tim fell in love with it. And then Nathan… And now, it is just in the process of getting re-zoned so that we can actually live in it. The landscaping is […]

What is 13 minus 7?

Six? Has it really been SIX years since I painted this bowl of eggs? (Or is it SEVEN? I’m not so good with math.) It seems like NOT that long ago that it was Easter-time in my sunny kitchen that overlooked BayView’s Humboldt Park. Every year I would put this green striped bowl, filled with […]
