Maine Cosmos

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I used to go to Maine in late summer with my boyfriend. It was heavenly. All the flowers were so happy in Maine with the ocean breezes and cool air, and the Maine cosmos was particularly strong and prolific. By late summer in Virginia, many flowers are showing signs of exhaustion [...]

Perennial Party

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" Creating a garden is like having a party. You think of all your colorful friends to invite, how they will mix with other friends and establish the party mood. Plants and flowers are like people in their diversity and colors. I love to watch diverse and colorful perennial flowers return year [...]

Lilies of Destiny

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" When I was forty-five years old, I dated a twenty-eight year old man for about a year. It was one of the best years of my life, I have to say. He was special, and I learned so much from him. I knew it wasn't going to last as he was [...]

Jeffrey’s Irises

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" My beloved Jeffrey brought me these beautiful irises for Valentines day. I placed them on the dining table with my Peruvian tablecloth. One afternoon the sunlight came through the window, and cast these incredible shadows. It wasn't long before Jeffrey's irises became a painting. Framed in silver. Original Painting Jeffrey's Irises [...]

Villa Courtyard

  Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" A simple, lovely image of the villa courtyard at my home away from home on Margarita island in Venezuela. Many mornings the local chickens made their way into the courtyard slipping through the wrought iron windows. That was fine so long as they did not bring a rooster with them [...]

Blue Horizon Bougainvillea

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" Over Christmas in 1995, I took my two sons to the island of Tobago. It is truly a Robinson Crusoe island with a forest reserve on the entire north side of the island which is mostly uninhabitable. Everything and everyone happens on the small southern end of the island. This was [...]

Ann Mari’s Indoor Garden

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" My step-mother, Ann Mari, is an amazing gardener, both outside and inside. She turned the family sunroom into a veritable greenhouse so we could enjoy blooming gardenias, geraniums, orchids and every assortment of green or blooming plant all year round. We called it the sunroom, but it was really Ann Mari's [...]

Calla Lilies

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" Calla lilies are painted on everything, everywhere, in Mexico. Calla means beautiful, and they are one of my most favorite flowers being so elegant in shape. They are a symbol for purity and rebirth. They are native to South Africa, and I have yet to see them growing in Mexico. I decided [...]
