The Last Peonie


I brought it in last night, figuring it wouldn't survive the rain. It smells wonderful. 12x12

Kitchen Sill


I've always liked having a flower on my kitchen window sill to look at while doing the dishes. That's why you may have noticed this set up before! 8x10

Spring at Birch Grove Park

I was going to title this Green on Green on Green. A beautiful afternoon. When I sat down to paint this scene there were three canadian geese sleeping on that ridge of ground...they promptly moved when I started. I figured the view was nice enough without them. One came over and sat very close to me ( then went to sleep ) while I painted...the perfect painting companion! 8x10

I realized after I was finished with this 5x7 that a great number of my wetland pics have a clump of grass in the lower left. I'm going to try and avoid that with my next composition. Sorry for all the reflections, they were caused by sunlight,,what a glorious thing it is!

St. Pete's

I keep putting my painting gear in my car and then taking it out...another weekend of heavy fog, clouds and rain. This is from a photo. I wanted to get a pic of St Peter's Roman Catholic Church with the flowering trees blooming( had to settle for a cloudy day of course ) I heard it's closing and I'm afraid the building may dissapear....another Pleasantville landmark. 9x12
