The Letter

Oil on canvas
30 x 40

Despite all our technology, or maybe because of it, receiving snail mail from a loved one is still a special moment. It calls for a cup of coffee, a comfortable chair, and enough time to read slowly and savor the connection with the sender.

Empty Nest

category: Waterscape Portraits

Oil on canvas
30 x 40

After raising five children it was a surprise to find out how quiet the house could be when the last and youngest got married and went off to establish his own home. It only lasts for awhile though because they all come back for baby-sitting, food and conversation (and I do believe it’s in that order).

Not Quite Summer

category: Waterscape Portraits

The weather is not quite nice enough, the water’s not quite warm enough, it’s not quite summer  until you can jump off that pier. Waiting for something you really love is crazy making.  I don’t think that ever changes.
