Our wisteria is now in bloom. It is a grand specimen and is well over 50 years old.

Sometimes it is too cumbersome to travel with my painting supplies. So while staying at my mother’s house in another state, I needed to find something quiet to do while it snowed outside. I went to the local Ben Franklin store and bought some student quality oil pastels and a pad of drawing paper. 11″x 14″

I love to grow flowers.  This watercolor was especially fun to create and is of plants growing in pots on our back deck.

Nasturtiums on Victorian Porch


This painting developed from a photo that I snapped on a walk.  This Victorian stood empty for a long time. The nasturtiums took over the front porch creating a delightful subject for a painting. Since I painted this, the porch has been rebuilt, the nasturtiums have been removed, and the house has been put up for sale.

Plowed Fields Along Highway 20

I love when we drive past the plowed fields along Highway 20 heading west from Williams, California.

This small painting was painted on Yupo, a synthetic paper made out of recycled plastic.
