Mountain Stream. 30x40. Oil. Available.
Mountain Stream. 30x40. Oil. Available.I spent many happy mornings at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park doing studies and drawings for this painting.  The little stream that runs by the entrance to the Y and feeds into the Big Thompson River is named Aspen Brook.  I admired the young elk that had come over from the national park and the emerald hummingbirds who flit around to inspect my progress. An occasional trail rider on horseback clip clopped by in an unhurried fashion.  The sound of the brook was as sweet as any symphony by Mozart.

Wetland's Pond. 17.5x20. Oil. Available.This painting was done from memory and  drawings of a Wetland's Pond in Estes Park near Mary's Lake.  I loved observing the pond on a misty morning and watching birds fly overhead. The trees on the far right are Ponderosa Pines. The number of grasses in the water were amazing- so many different textures and colors. In  places it was hard to tell which areas were grasses and which were the dark reflections of trees in the pond.  I imagined the house in the distance as a place where I would like to go when I wanted solitude.

The Rocky Mountains. 24x40. Oil on panel. Available.In the distance you can spot Long's Peak and Mt. Meeker and a waterfall. This was created from several combined drawings when I stayed with my artist friend, Deborah Paris at the YMCA of the Rockies in June 2015. For many years our family vacationed there and enjoyed hiking and watching the afternoon storms roll in and smelling the sweet mountain sage. The composition features several opposing diagonals to give the piece some drama.

"The Promise of Spring" Oil on Panel. 12x20. AvailableThis painting is of multiple pastures in Clarksville, Texas.  I loved the streams in the land and the promise of spring- new green grasses and bare trees on a misty morning.  The diagonals in the composition lead the viewer into the scene. 
The Guadalupe River.12x20.Oil. Available.
The Guadalupe River.12x20.Oil. Available.This painting was inspired by a trip I made with my husband to the Guadalupe River at dawn one Sunday morning.  It was so quiet- the sky was  pale rose, the water barely moving except a tiny ripple here and there.  This was painted in the studio from a memory of that still morning in early spring.
Big Sky. Oil. 33x42

Italian Countryside, Oil on panel, 12x12
Italian Countryside, Oil on panel, 12x12This painting was done from memory of the Italian countryside near Buon Convento in Tuscany.  It features olive trees, an Italian villa with cyprus trees and distant hills.  In the foreground there are wild anise flowers.

"Still Waters" 27x40. Oil on panel. Available.This painting features three horses drinking from the still water. Two stand watching and looking at the viewer while one drinks deeply.  The time is spring when the redbud trees are  blooming and most of the trees are green.  There are distant hills to draw the viewer back to the horizon line.  The clouds and trees are reflected in the water- the day is calm.  It has feeling of great distance.
