Last day on the lake.

I’m a bit delayed in getting my photo(s) up this week, mostly due to this blog being on the back burner, at least for the moment. After frittering away the entire summer in my sketchbook and otherwise doing nothing, I’ve finally gotten started on some more serious “frame-able” pictures which I will post in progress […]

End of Summer Swans

The Swan Family returned for a visit the other day, except with only three young ones this time. They have grown so much in only three months! I tried to make some sketches yesterday evening but my results were so shaky that I will put in more practice until I post anything!

Mountain Study

Swan Family

The swans were by our shoreline for over four hours, finding little bites to eat in our little cove. A family of seven!

Tree Reflections

I’m getting excited about getting out on the water!

Here is my finished painting: I chose the title Birthday Sunset because this was the sunset on the evening that I was hosting Cate’s first birthday party this past November. I was drawn to the peachy pinks and the dramatic clouds above. Although I based it on my own photo reference, I altered the final […]

Weather Blessings

The storm was such a blessing to me, as I was let off work early on Friday and got to spend more time with Cate and on my colored pencil work. We didn’t lose power at all, but we did have a small plumbing mishap (unrelated to the storm) which was a small damper on […]
