|"The Grassy Roads" , oil , 12 x 12" copyright 2018|
There is a carriage road at Acadia National Park that is not like the other carriage roads that meander through the park. This road is not made of crushed rock that the horses clip clop along ......but this road is covered with green grass and runs through forest and granite embankments dressed in wild flowers and blueberry bushes. The horses quietly trot through this road, so peacefully with the only noise the clink of chains on the carriage, if there are chains, ......and the singing of the birds in the trees. It seems magical. And what could be more magical than to be riding behind a team of white horses. Thus.... "The Grassy Road" came into being.

|"Signs Of Spring" , oil on gallery canvas, 8 x 10" copyright 2018|
We have raised several foals on our farm....two Tennessee Walking colts and two Welsh Cob foals, a filly and a colt. I have painted them all over the years. I could not get through this spring without foals. So I have painted some.....not ours this time. I do miss having our own foals running around the farm, but I can paint them.

|"Young Does" charcoal on Strathmore Gray Scale paper , 9 x 12"|
Often, on my walks around our farm , I come upon wildlife that share our woods. These young deer were grazing on a patch of green that grows in our over grown woods. I've captured them in charcoal.... maybe to paint at some future point.
