In all their finery.

Some women in dresses inspired by birds.

I've heard talk that this is the coldest February in recorded New Hampshire history, a very good reason to stay inside and paint! Hoping spring will come eventually...

An ensemble of Esthers


mixed media on paper

After nearly a week of a bad head cold, I am finally back at work. To get into the groove again, I wanted to work small. 

Have a lovely weekend and stay warm!

frigid temps and thoughts of spring

I don't have a new painting to post this week due to three days spent on the couch with a head cold but a few collages to give us hope of the upcoming spring.

The southern part of New Hampshire has received 65-75 inches of snow this winter, I saw this online this morning along with a point of reference - shoulder high to a moose! Very cold temps predicted for the next week or so. I'll be painting while perching on top of my space heater for sure.


Freshly hatched.

A good man is hard to find.

I took most of the month of January off from painting and worked mainly on collage and did a lot of reading. Towards the end with several blizzards, I began to get restless and broke out the paints again with all sorts of inspiration from what I'd been reading. This piece inspired by the writing of Flannery O'Connor, whose short stories I've been re-reading the past few months.

Carol and Rudy, vacation in Malibu

January is really cold in New Hampshire so it was a nice fantasy to work on this painting of a warm California beach while bundled in sweaters sitting nearly on top of a space heater.
