These daylilies were everywhere in Cape Cod last July. They are the essence of summer, bright and cheerful. I pumped up the background color quite a bit so it jumps off the wall.
I painted this with a client in mind, one who likes poppies. He bought it, and now the poppies have a good home. I love how the red poppies vibrate against the turquoise sky. They almost jump off the canvas.
This is a wonderful marsh with a bright blue creek running through it that can only be photographed standing on top of a fence on a highway with many cars rushing by. Quite a challenge! I try to paint it every year when we visit Cape Cod. You are looking out towards Cape Cod Harbor here.
When we stayed in Tuscany, this was our view of Pienza from the villa. Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to have this view of a golden medieval town every morning while you drink your coffee! I can't imagine ever getting tired of it.
This is a plein air painting I did over the Christmas break while visiting Big Bend Park. We stayed in a house on a mountainside in Terlingua, Texas. The views from the porch were spectacular. We saw many road runners and javelinas in this desert landscape. Only in Texas!.
I painted this for the Biblical Art Museum's 8X8 Exhibition & Auction. I took the photo for the painting at St Andrews Scottish Church across the valley from the Old City in Jerusalem. It was a beautiful sunset! The event is this Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 7-10 pm.
The sail boats are racing on White Rock Lake in Dallas at sunset when the wind picks up. This was a plein air painting that I finished in my studio.
Flaming red-orange quince bushes are the very earliest sign of spring in Dallas. There are not very many of them, probably too old fashioned. I am lucky to have a beautiful one on my street, in front of a lovely arts and crafts house.
This is a plein air painting I did last week which features the skyline of the Cathedral of Seville, the 3rd largest gothic building in Europe. I wanted to capture the mystery of it against the glowing sky. I also want to portray how spiky these gothic buildings are! They are all points and scary gargoyles.
Here is my first painting from the trip to the Texas Hill country. For those of you have gone on the Willow City Loop in the past month, you will recognize this spot! It is gorgeous and one of the few places that is not fenced. Disney could not have done a better job here! I will be painting more from this location.
I painted this on a cloudy day, and the sunflowers really added some sunshine.

This is a beautiful old crape myrtle in front of my house. It is probably from the early 1920s. We lost a big piece of it in an ice storm several years ago, but it still looks great all year round. There are giant bright pink blooms all summer and the shiny apricot bark all winter.
I caught the last light over the lake in this painting. The sky was glowing and the water shimmered with oranges and pinks. The dark tree skeleton and shore anchored the scene.
