Long Night's Reading

6"x 6"   oil

I love the way the light catches the edges of this stack of old classics. Although this is not the stack of paperbacks I keep beside my bed, they make a better looking still life!

Fog In Whale Gulch

7"x 5"   oil

This is a view from the top of Whale Gulch looking down the length of the gulch to the ocean beyond. It is a truly spectacular view.

Last Bite, Last Light

6"x 6"   oil

While walking on the beach not too long ago I noticed this lone fisherman in his boat. The late afternoon light seemed to make it glow.

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers...

6"x 6"   oil

" 'Hope' is the thing with feathers--
That perches in the soul--
And sings the tune without the words--
And never stops--at all--"

Bedside Bouquet

4"x 4"   oil

This is my first painting since my husband's hip surgery--hip-hip-hooray! He is getting around remarkably well, sometimes even walking without crutches. Modern surgery is amazing! This little painting is of the calendulas and hyacinths that I picked from our garden to put by his bed. I love their bright and cheery colors.

Reflections at Low Tide

6"x 6"   oil

My husband's hip surgery went well and he is healing rapidly. We got lots of help from neighbors and friends getting the house ready for him and also helping us deal with the storm damage that caused many trees to fall and block our driveway. Now, we can move forward and get used to the 'new normal'. Needless to say I have not been able to do any new paintings yet, but I was cheered to find out that this one, and some others, had recently sold. Yay!!

Hip Surgery

I may not be producing any new paintings for a while as my husband had to have emergency hip surgery. So, if you don't see anything new that's what's happening in my world.
