Tea and Clementine

Hot tea and clementines help take the chill off of a winter day, don't they? And it is always fun to settle in a warm studio and just paint.

I am a little behind in posting. This painting was from several days ago. Thank you for your patience.

I hope you're having a great week! Happy painting!

Little Black Baldy

Newborn calves are about the sweetest things ever, and little black baldy calves are my favorite. Working from life always feels more natural to me, but I couldn't resist painting this photograph. This was one of our babies from last spring.

I hope you're staying warm in this chilly weather. Happy painting!

Red Currants

The year of 2016 was a wonderful one for our family.  We celebrated the 80th birthday of my Dad, our nephew's graduation from medical school, the beautiful wedding of our niece, and the birth of a precious baby boy. A lot of other birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries were celebrated, too. Such a happy year! We feel so thankful.

Wishing you and yours a very blessed new year! Here's to 2017! Happy painting!

Remembrance of a Summer Walk

A few things collected from my morning walks: heart-shaped rocks and a bird's feather combined with a handmade amber bottle from Jury Smith's Bottle and Bowl collection.

Blueberries and Pussywillow


Love this sweet little poem by Aileen Fisher:

Pussy Willows
Close your eyes
And do not peek
And I'll rub Spring
Across your cheek...
