Wetlands, an Original Oil Painting

On of my favorite places in northwestern Pennsylvania, the wetlands of Erie Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, gives me numerous opportunities to paint. The scenes are delightful in every direction you look! Plenty of wildlife as well as waterfowl and many plant species. I felt as if the pines were whispering that day! This happens to be north of Cochranton on Rt 173.

Sunset Painting and Effects, an Original Oil Painting

I was commissioned to do another painting of "Forgotten Loves", however not really wanting to do an exact rendition I chose to do this one as a sunset. I think I like the results.

Just Cluckin' Around

I wanted to take a break between commissions,
 and what better way to do it than celebrate spring by painting a couple of my hens!
Just a quick practice piece to loosen up...

American Cafe #2

A commissioned piece with additions and changes from the original.. It was kinda fun painting this again as I had added more background and that beautiful Chevy Bel Air convertible! I can imagine riding in it on a beautiful summer day and feeling the wind in my hair, then stopping for a burger at this American Cafe!

Painting Practice, a Warm Fall Day

This was supposed to be a practice piece, but I turned it into a full painting. Just could not stop myself  😊
I really enjoyed doing this piece. It looks like the water goes even further back in than what it shows. Maybe a good place for ducks to hide, feed, or nest. Though the sun is shining, I can feel the crisp fall morning air and it turns my thoughts to hunkering down for the winter with my paints and brushes, a crackling fire and my pup keeping me company. Well, still a month of good days to enjoy outside.....

Pretty Cactus Study

These young cactus plants were growing and beginning to blossom in my brother's back yard south-east of Tucson AZ, when I visited there in late winter this year. I have fallen in love with the scenery of this area of Arizona!!
