Winter Magpies

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" When I lived in Taos, the winter magpies would appear and fill this big, bare tree out the living room window. I would sit by the fire, and watch them swoop and dive and spin and soar in and out and around the tree for hours. It was an acrobatic show [...]

Rain Over Pedernal

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" There is a long, narrow mesa near Abiquiu in New Mexico called Cerro Pedernal, known to the locals as just Pedernal. I believe there is a particular type of rock common there that is collected by the native people for some use. But what makes Pedernal especially sacred to me is [...]

Sacred Union

Aqua oil on canvas, 30"x40" I was inspired to paint this after I wrote a book called Shells From The Mountain. And the book was inspired by a collection of sea shells, and my life living on a secluded mountain with a man I loved. I wanted a sacred union with him. I wanted us [...]

Bowl of Trix

Watercolor, 18"x24" This is another early, landscape painting in watercolor of our farm. I had to paint the mountain in all its glory of autumn colors. I just sat on the grass in front of that fence, and painted away. All I could think of when I was done was a bowl of trix from [...]

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 [...]

Daisies in the Wind

Acrylic on paper, 22"x30" I had a delightful surprise on another one of my summer walks through the country hills. I came across a hillside covered with daisies in the wind. There  was not a single daisy anywhere else except on this one hill. They were all blowing in the wind, and I wondered if [...]

Evening Redbud

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x36" An Appalachian spring brings the beautiful blossoms of the redbud trees. The color of the blooms in the day time is a soft violet with hints of rose, but the evening redbud comes with deep shades of purple and fuchsia. It is an exquisite setting against the deep green rolling [...]

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 [...]
