Serenity on The Pocomoke River

8"x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel

This is the view from a dock near our home. The Pocomoke River is lined with cypress trees and lily pads. It is a narrow river in many places and a local favorite for waterskiing and other boating activities. Our family takes our boats out on a regular basis in the summer for fun and great fellowship. We also have hosted many family reunions there. I was actually baptized in this beautiful river!

Chili Peppers

8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel

I love spicy food and the fresher the better! I am famous for my spicy chili. When my son asked me for my recipe, he added fresh jalepenos to his batch. WOW, was that fantastic! It adds a fresh spiciness that's really yummy. That’s how I make it for my husband and I now. These three red chili peppers were so warm in color, I decided to use a cooler brown for the background. I think the contrast is pretty interesting. What do you think? This painting is a bit more impressionistic in style than many of my paintings and I really like the looseness that resulted. I hope you do too!

Pear on Blue

6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel

I enjoyed painting and eating this pear and am happy to say it tasted as good as it looked. Have you ever eaten pear butter? It is very much like apple butter but with it's own rich flavor. My mom has fruit trees on her property and last summer while visiting, my cousin Dean made pear butter. It was delicious! It is surprising how very popular the pear is as an object to paint. I hope you like mine.

8" x 10" Oil on Canvas

Another in my bird series, this painting was fun to do. The Carolina Chickadee lives in the U.S. only and has a wingspan of only six to eight inches. A pair bond between a male and female Carolina Chickadee can remain intact for several years. Reference photo from BSWilson1147 of WetCanvas. I added a close-up of the head but you can always click on the painting to view it in larger format.

6" x 6" Oil painting on Canvas Panel

Summer is my favorite time of the year. My husband loves to plant a few tomato and pepper plants each year. We wait and wait, forever it seems, until he is finally able to harvest one or two. We eat them faster than they can ripen...for awhile. All of a sudden we're giving them to friends and family because they're coming off faster than we can eat them! I enjoyed painting this beautiful tomato in anticipation of what's to come!

Dear Friend

8"x10" Oil on Canvas

A portrait of our sweet Megan. Words cannot express how dear she is to me. Always by my side and always eager to please, she hates the mailman, adores kids and lives to tear up her toys!

"The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too." ~ Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912

Skipping Stones

8" x 10" Oil on Canvas Panel

This little fellow was having fun at the park with his mom. He was obviously trying to make the stones skip across the surface of the water but not quite succeeding. He still seemed to be delighted at the "kurplunk!" sound and the ripples that resulted with each toss. This little painting is a study for a larger painting in the future.
