Road To The Ranch

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I did this landscape painting of the road to the ranch long before I ever lived in the Southwest. I used to make trips out there almost every years to visit friends. On one of those trips I got a clear sense that  some day I would live there. It took [...]

View From Las Estrellas

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" This was my first home in Santa Fe, and it was like I had landed on another planet. I lived on a road that in Spanish means "the stars", and the view from Las Estrellas was incredible. I used to sit in this old, blue rocker from the front porch of [...]

Sea Of Sage

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" One of the first long walks I took in Taos was through a sea of sage. By the time I got to the other side of this sea, I felt like I had been purified and changed. No wonder the plant is sacred and used for purification. Giclee Prints 9"x 12" [...]

Hatch Chile Fields

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x36" The famous Hatch chiles are grown down in southern New Mexico. It's a colorful place to visit in the fall when all the fields are bright with the greens and reds of soon to be harvested chiles. It's really beautiful to look out across all the vibrant Hatch chile fields [...]

Aprons In The Wind

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I used to go visit the most wonderful black woman named Josie. She became a dear friend whom I cherished. She would always cook a meal when she knew I was coming. It was always the same meal, and it was always so good. You can't go too wrong with a [...]

Tuscany Trees

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" I do not know what it is about the captivating cypress trees that dot the Italian countryside. We hiked over to this outcropping, and had a picnic lunch. We were bathed by the powerful, sweet fragrance that comes from the essential oils in the wood of these Tuscany trees. An Italian farmer [...]

Poppies in the Olive Grove

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" This beautiful scene of poppies in the olive grove appeared on the other side of a hill on a winding country road. We were passing many olive groves, but none were lit up like this one with a zillion yellow flowers dotted with red poppies. I couldn't wait to paint this! [...]

Pienza

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" The beautifully preserved, hill top village of Pienza is a Tuscan, Renaissance gem. We spent most of a day here wandering up and down all the charming streets.This is a village that has everything you need, but it's unlike the one stop shop trend in America. Here, you go to the [...]

Spring Meadow

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" An Appalachian spring is as close to heaven on earth as I can imagine. The woods are all bursting with snippets of soft green, pink, purple and white while the spring meadow is showing off shades of yellow and bright green. A new cycle of beauty has begun. Framed in gold [...]

As Above So Below

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" This is a beautiful, autumn landscape painting of our Virginia farm. I tried to capture the reflections in the pond water...that is tricky to do! The pond is below the scene I was painting, and the reflection I was trying to capture was above. So, as above so below. In the [...]
