We Had A Happy Thanksgiving - And My Latest Watercolor -

"Arriving Back At The Barn-Acadia" , watercolor, 10 x 19 3/4" ©2014

 Snow steadily fell over our farm on the eve before Thanksgiving and we put the horses back into their cozy stalls. I did the baking for our Thanksgiving Day celebration that we spent with family. I hope you all had someone to enjoy the day with. I am so thankful for our life on our small farm with our horses, and that I am able to paint works that make my heart happy.

This is the latest work finished, “Arrival Back At The Barn – Acadia”  is a watercolor depicting a lovely 4 in- hand of Kaldruber horses pulling their happy party of passengers, as they all come back from a lovely ride on the miles of carriage roads of Acadia National Park.

I am working on commission work now, that of course, I can’t show, as they are going to folks for Christmas. I will continue my "Fall Clean Up Sale" for a bit longer. Some folks have nabbed some great buys in this art sale…….Were you one? If you haven’t bought anything yet, take at look at the work available while it is up… offering easy shopping from the comfort of your home!

Have a warm cozy Thanksgiving Day tomorrow. 
From our house to your house!
God bless!

My Fall Special Making Room Sale.... Or "Cleaning Up The Studio Sale"


It has to happen!!!  Another Fall Clean Up The Studio Special Sale!!....I did it last year with great success...... but my studio is getting too crowded again....and if I want to continue painting, [and I do] I HAVE to move out some of my art works. Some are framed. Some are not framed. They are ALL  being offered at very low prices and my space dilemma is your gain. So grab a cup of tea, coffee or a glass of wine and virtually walk around my virtual art sale. It is a great way to collect my work at discounted prices. Collect for your own walls... or for that special person on your holiday shopping list.


These are just a few that are listed in the sale. I am going through my inventory and will be adding a few more over the days the sale is running. So have some fun looking through my inventory sale....and good luck! Hope you nab a good one...........for yourself, or for that someone special for the holidays!!

One Oar - A Painting And My Life

It is difficult rowing a boat with one oar, but that is actually the scene I saw on our Maine coast and that I painted in one of my latest works. It seems to be a metaphorical description of my life lately. Right now I am working with ‘one oar”.  ….Actually I am working with one good eye, having just gone through cataract surgery. What a different a day makes. With one new lens implanted in one of my cataract clouded eyes, I am now looking at a world that is bright with wonderful whites in my left eye. My right eye awaits its turn, as it still sees a gray and yellowish world. I am wondering how this will affect my paintings. I have had a hard time painting details, mixing colors…..even seeing. I am excited about what I can see now out of one eye…..!! Can you imagine how it will be when both eyes are seeing a brand new world ?
So until then…..I will be rowing with “One Oar”.   This painting is available on my website.
Thank you for your interest in my art!!
