New Moon Fireflies

Aqua oil on canvas, 24"x48" One of the most wonderful spectacles of  Appalachian summer evenings are the fireflies. This was a scene one summer night off my back porch when the fireflies came out by the thousands to light up the field. It was especially beautiful under the new moon, thus the painting was called [...]

Early Evening Light

Acrylic on paper, 18"x24" This old farmhouse had a big, picture window facing northwest. I could grow all kinds of flowering house plants without them burning up. There was just enough western exposure for the early evening light to set the fields and trees glowing, and cast some lovely shadows through the window.   Giclee [...]

Down The Hill

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" How can one not love autumn when all the trees turn such amazing colors? One crisp, fall day I went for a long walk on our Virginia farm. I was coming down the hill from the barn, and the trees lining the road were just on fire with oranges and red. [...]

Afternoon Grazing

Acrylic on paper, 9"x12" I had a painter friend in Taos who lived in a beautiful valley with lots of horses. I used to go visit him from time to time, we would sit in his studio and talk art and painting and life, then we would go riding. When we didn't ride, I would [...]

Galisteo

Acrylic on paper, 12"x16" Galisteo is a special village in New Mexico at the heart of the pristine Galisteo basin. It was the first place I landed on my first visit to the land of enchantment. I lived in many other surrounding areas, but for whatever reason, my heart always found it's way back here. [...]

Summer Storm

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" I went to visit an artist once who wanted to show some paintings in my gallery. She said they were too big to bring in her car, and if I would come out to see them, she would make me lunch. I was always ready for an adventure. When I turned [...]

Ojo Cottonwoods

Acrylic on canvas, 22"x28" We all love the Ojo valley not just because it's beautiful, but because it is home to some of the best mineral hot springs in the world. Driving to the hot springs in fall was the best as all the Ojo cottonwoods were in their golden glow. And on the way [...]

Evening In The Wash

Acrylic on paper, 14"x20" One of the benefits of living in Santa Fe is all the sandy arroyos throughout town that make great, natural walking trails for you and the dog. They are also called washes because when it rains, they fill up with water and wash everything in them away. I had a wonderful [...]

Snow In Taos

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" I had a great view of Taos mountain from my old hacienda in town. It snowed like crazy there. I was cooking for 18 people one Thanksgiving day, and it started snowing early that morning. By 4 pm that afternoon, there was about 30 inches of snow on the ground. The [...]

Desert Mermaid

Aqua oil on canvas, 36"x60" In the high desert of New Mexico, the summer monsoons usually arrive in late July, but sometimes they come earlier which is a good sign. And sometimes the monsoons just spit some rain, and never cut loose. Those make for hard, dry summers. One hot day I was out walking [...]
