Like many, my husband and I have found comfort, peace, and connection by simply taking long walks during our Corona quarantine. The other day we were exploring a new trail — at least new to us — when we happened on an old abandoned shed which once housed a tourist gold mining business. This 24×24 oil on canvas painting was inspired by that discovery.
As we continue to shelter in place, our bluebird neighbors are busy doing what they do each spring. This little jewel of spring caught my attention the other morning. 14×18 oil on canvas.
Seeking new subject matter during my Corona shelter-at-home, my 5-year old granddaughter suggested a butterfly while I was FaceTiming with her the other day. What a great, positive idea, given the state of the world just now. Butterfly Kisses is 18×24, oil on canvas. Enjoy!
In spite of the pandemic gripping the world right now, Spring — and all it’s wonder — is moving forward as scheduled. Inspired by the blossoming Candytuft growing along the stone wall I can see out my back window. Oil on canvas, 24×30.
Wind, sun, water. Always changing. Calling this one “Swept.” 36×36 oil on canvas.
A bright and cheery nod to a better day to come. Brilliant sun rays sparkling through the early morning sky. 40×30 oil on canvas.
Inspired by a picture taken by my son during a recent visit to Brazil to visit his fiancee, I tried to capture the relatively small place we occupy in a larger, more vast eternity. When we pause to look up, down, and around, it’s easy to realize there is most definitely something more — particularly in these very uncertain times. Oil on canvas, 36×48.
This is a slightly different take on the “Engaged” painting I created a few weeks back. I used a different color palette for this. 48×36, oil on canvas.
The snow fell, to a surprising depth. I peered down to the end of the driveway, the stone wall pointing the way. The world was muffled into near silence, save for a few Jays crying out here and there in search of a morning meal. Another of my paintings created during my Corona shelter-in-place. Oil on canvas, 18×24
