I usually paint my reaction to the physical environment around me.

At the moment, I needed to paint something I have a hard time putting into words. 


This is my expression of the blazing rise of the spirit.

This painting and creating it, has calmed my fervor.

Thanksgiving Woods

Thanksgiving Woods is 72" x 60" oil on canvas.  It is my impression of the light in late November in New York state.


I find it hard to capture with 1 image so I took side shots to better represent the painting.

Thank you for visiting!

Painting has become necessary in my life.

The inquiry, colors, surprises and challenges are all food for my soul.

The more I try, the more ideas I have.  Beauty in nature inspires my creative impulse.


Author Brenda Ueland’s remarkable insight in, “If You Want to Write” reminds us 

“there is something necessary and life-giving about ‘creative work’.  A state of excitement.  And it is like a faucet: nothing comes unless you turn it on, and the more you turn it on, the more it comes.”


The act of painting is my hook, when the image turns out close to my expectations, contentment.
