As a child growing up on a farm, my family and I raised a wide variety of waterfowls and rare breed chickens. The Hen and chicks (pictured here) are brown leghorns, which I raised as a teenager. This evokes special memories for me. 16×20

This was a still life I set up shortly before we put an addition built onto our home. Only on a very sunny day, at certain time, the sun would shine through my “special window” casting shadows with incredible darkness and intensity. Since I lost the window, due to construction changes on our house, I have tried to duplicate this shadow effect. However, I have been unsuccessful. That moment in time is lost, but now it is forever captured in this painting!
This Amaryllis flower was painted in the middle of a winter season. The plant was in full bloom. I attempted to capture it’s beauty, and added the triangle to give the painting depth and perspective. It was accepted in a juried art show and received a merit ribbon as well. 16×20.
