The Garden Nook


Sunflowers, hollyhocks, nasturtiums, lupins, and other pretty flowers make up her 'secret garden' nook. This painting was patterned after a real spot in the garden. I added the stone bench, more flowers and the young girl reading her favorite book.

Poppies and Buttons


Love these beautiful red poppies. Every time I passed these brilliant red flowers growing along the road, I made a mental note to paint them. Well it took awhile, but I finally did. Added the little purple-blue batchelors buttons for contrast.

Wolf Memories


I love wolves.
This is my first attempt at painting them.
I haven't seen many wolves in the wild, but as an adult, I have heard their song in the night quite a few times when camping.
As a child, when camping, I had to make a late night run to the privy, and as I stepped out of the tent, I saw a wolf drinking from the nearby creek as his buddies stood by. I remember standing quietly watching them until they moved on into the forest.
This painting is from that memory.
