Welcome to"Behind The Canvas", my reflections on what inspired a painting or a series of works and my feelings toward living a creative life. People often ask me about my work, hopefully, this blog will answer some of those questions. Enjoy! LP
I’m very pleased to have just received news that my painting of “Alliums” will be part of the 12th Annual Best of West Virginia Juried Exhibition at Tamarack to open September 26. If you’re traveling by Tamarack this Fall, I hope you’ll visit the gallery.

Steve and I have been spending time at our camp house on the Greenbrier River, the perfect spot to stay away from crowds. It’s a wonderful place for appreciating nature and finding inspiration for our art. We take daily walks and have enjoyed the respite that is so hard to capture during “normal times” when the demands of work keep us all so busy. The extra days at the camp house also have given us time to discover unintended projects, like needed repairs to the porch and the roof. We now have a good idea of what it’s like to be featured in one of those home improvement shows on HGTV!
Do you remember making a wish before blowing on the dandelion puff?
