Peacemeal Pinks

We are fortunate to live across the road from The Peacemeal Farm.
Not only are they wonderful neighbors, they grow every kind of organic vegetable you can imagine. I find endless inspiration in their fields, gardens and produce.

This was painted on white Wallis sanded pastel paper stained with India ink. This dark background allowed for the vibrant colors. I loved the deep rich color of these peaches...and the deep recesses of the stemless holes.

These are the drooping remnants of some of the hundreds of sunflowers my husband plants every year. They're even graceful in their winter state...but wait til you see them come spring!

Long Distance

A section of our backyard. You see one of the apple trees. What you don't see are the two small pear trees planted a couple of years ago. I'm growing my own pears for painting!

Strung Out

Christmas lights strung on the wild roses in our backyard.


What struck me was the back lighting. I hoped to capture the striking contrast of light.

A New Day

The first painting of the new year...with MANY more to come!
