Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.

I started this 8"x10" oil painting before I went to florida and I finished it this morning. I love trees and I love to paint them. This particular tree is rather poignant to me because it grows in Greenwood Cemetery. My grandparents, great-grandparents, and other family members are buried there. Established in 1838 in Brooklyn, N.Y., Greenwood is the oldest uban cemetery in the country.  It has 478 acres and was designed by the same person who later designed Central Park. In early times, families used to spend their Sundays picnicking and strolling about the hills enjoying the breathtaking scenery.  I've...

Chattahoochee River Painting, "Autumn Infusion."

Chattahoochee River Painting, "Autumn Infusion."

I've long been enthralled by the Chattahoochee River.  Living north of Atlanta, it's one of the few places that a soul has to wander that's not too far from home.  It's possible to spend a nice amount of time gazing at the fast moving waters in complete solitude.  This particular area is called, Jones Bridge.  The old bridge has since come down and a new one is being built so that other wandering souls can cross from one side to the other. This 36"x 36" acrylic painting, "Autumn Infusion," on wide border canvas has a kinetic that carries your eye along...

Apples on Canvas Painting

Apples on Canvas Painting

As I sit here writing about my apple painting, I'm thinking of a scene in "Good Will Hunting".  After getting his love interest's number in a bar, Will Hunting (Matt Damon) taunts the man who didn't get her number.  Will bangs on the window of the coffee shop the man is sitting in, and asks him through the glass if he likes apples. When the man says, " Yes, a crisp Gala apple is delightful on a sunny fall day!" Will slams the number against the window and says, "Well, I got her number. How do you like them apples?"  So, I...

New Fall Aspen Tree Painting

New Fall Aspen Tree Painting

My newest original fall aspen tree painting is titled, "Autumn Brilliance" and it measures 48"x 60"x 1.5". Imagine these exciting vibrant hues and lively aspen trees filling your room and creating a mesmerizing focal point.  In the evening, if there's just a little light in the room, an ethereal glow radiates from this work of art.  I can guarantee you that photographs just can't do this painting justice.  When my clients enter my studio, the first thing they tell me is that my work is surprisingly better in person than online.  They love it online or they wouldn't come to...

Colorado Splendor

Colorado Splendor

September was ablaze with the splendor of Colorado's beauty.  My husband and I spent twelve glorious days with my sister and brother-in-law at their ranch outside of Aspen.  On this particular morning, my sister and I ventured out along the Frying Pan River.  That's a great name for a river, isn't it?  You know it must have an abundance of trout to have a name like that.  Around every turn of the road we discovered a new adventure as we parked the car and made our way down to the sparkling multi-colored waters.   How wonderful it was to be out...
