Burlingame Farm

This past Monday I painted at the Burlingame farm. What a joy to sit in those fields on a summer day, clouds floating in a blue sky, fresh giant hay bales scattered beneath

Echinacea and Butterfly Bush

This is an area of the Fellows Riverside Garden in Mill Creek Metro-park near Youngstown Ohio. The coneflowers and butterfly bush are so paintable!!.

Maxwell's Hospitality House

One day at Lakeside Chautauqua I sat in front of this warmly lit and welcoming Bed and Breakfast. What fun to try to capture the atmosphere of this lovely home.

Lakeside Garden

I spent one week at Lakeside Chautauqua on Lake Erie this month. My Friend Michelle and I taught at the Rhein Center. My classes were, you might guess, Plein Air classes. This was a demo for my class. It has sold since then.


This was a beautiful day with storm-clouds threatening! Our group met at a farm near Winona on Winona road. Finished painting just as the storm let loose.

Simon's Fields

I scheduled Simon's hay field for our Monday Plein Air meet-up. My hope was that the round bales would still be sitting, throwing some shadows onto the fields. The clouds too were making a wonderful display of rolling light & shadow. Thankfully the dramatic landscape held. The wind was somewhat gusty, forcing me to hold the easel still with one hand while painting.
