New Moon Fireflies

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" One of the most wonderful spectacles of  Appalachian summer evenings are the fireflies.

Ann Mari’s Indoor Garden

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" My step-mother, Ann Mari, is an amazing gardener, both outside and inside.

We called it the sunroom, but it was really Ann Mari's [...]

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 [...]

Bowl of Trix

Hay Bales from the Sky at Llangollen

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" Llangollen farm was on the road to our farm. They had bigger front fields than we did, and in summer they were full of hay bales. There were so many that to me, they looked like they had dropped out of the sky. And so it was called hay bales from [...]
