This image that I shot in mid-autumn at Crall woods is inspiration for my current painting series of the four seasons.


I have had a very busy autumn schedule which is why I have not made time to post on my art blog. You can see my other projects from viewing my other blogs.  I used to be excited to be so busy!  Now I want to slow down and focus on my interests.


For some reason I did not add my winter paintings to this photograph…but I’m happy with the progress I’ve made.  This is my most productive year since closing my last studio in 2006 and completing grad school in 2011.  I hope to begin posting again on a regular basis.  The gallery at my studio is closed for the winter so now I can focus on painting.



I made an early morning trip to the studio this past Saturday,


Later my dogs and I explored the frozen landscape of the Willard park.


It’s interesting the prints that we leave behind, the marks we make on the landscape around us.  We think they are so permanent…yet they are just moments frozen in time soon to be washed away with the thawing and melting of spring…our days are very brief.
