The Visitor

Upon hearing a loud "thump" on my dressing room window, I looked out to find this little guy knocked out. He was so still that I thought he was a goner. I realized that he was a Cedar Waxwing and I had never seen one up close - he was SO beautiful. I was inspired to do this little painting as a remembrance and as I started sketching, he began to awaken and slowly sat up in a daze and moments later, flew off. I'm grateful to have fully embraced the moment.

 


One Size Fits All...

Snow might be in the forecast, but when I gaze at my painting of these colorful sandals, I am instantly transported to my favorite place... the BEACH! These sandals are the quintessential footwear of many chic resort towns along the coast.
And these paintings are sure to set the mood of a room to one of sunshine and relaxation. Let's go on vacation! One size fits all.


Cicely In The Morning Light

The early morning hours pass too quickly. I awoke early this morning to the faint light of the sky. After some reflection & reading, the room was a glow in sunbeams. Soon the day will be a buzz with voices and activity. I just want to savor this moment. And, here is a painting from another early morning when I caught Cissy in the act.


Sisters

Sisters

Ruth Anderson and Lillian Burgess were sisters that shared the house across the street from us. They were complete opposites from each other. Lillian was ladylike, always in a dress, her white hair piled in a high bun on her head. She drove around town in her vintage powder blue VW beetle. Her sister Ruth dressed in pants, was cantankerous, and loved a good joke. They have been gone for over a decade, but Lillian's hydrangea bushes live on in our garden. The painting resides in the permanent collection at The University of Charleston.
