Tropical Country Garden

18"x 24", Acrylic on paper My step-mother, Ann Mari, loved to experiment with new plants and flowers in our farm garden.

Stonewall By The Garden

22"x 30", Acrylic on paper In the summer of 1993, I painted a series of 25 paintings to honor my step-mother's magnificent garden on our farm. I exhibited the series at a gallery in the spring of 1994, and my father bought this painting. I am certain he chose this one, not only for the [...]

Rain Coming

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" I owned a beautiful, old stone house once with a big front porch. I loved to sit on that porch in summer and watch the summer storms blowing in from the west. The sky would change colors, the trees would begin to dance in the wind and I would get excited [...]

Iris Splendor

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" I found this exquisite iris at a farmer's market, and planted it by the back gate. It grew like crazy! Every one who came to the house through the back gate always walked in the door saying how much they loved that iris. I spread that iris splendor all over the [...]

Road to La Saracina

We passed by this enchanting, long road to La Saracina late in the day, and promptly turned around to check it out. It's an old, country home turned B & B, and the setting was so charming and wonderful. We arrived just in time for a scrumptious, home cooked dinner in the grand hall with [...]

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 [...]

Spring Grazing

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x48" The deer come out in droves in spring to graze on all the new, fresh grass. On many spring mornings, I would see them gathered under a big oak tree in the field out my kitchen window. After a long graze, they would often play which I had never witnessed [...]

Under The Willlow

Aqua oil on canvas.48"x48" Sometimes I cannot sleep when the moon is full. I woke one full moon night, restless, and went down to the kitchen. As I passed through the hall to the kitchen, I looked out the window to see a small fox sitting in the moonlight under the willow tree, and behind [...]
