Apple Pie


Remember the "Windfall Apples" painting from last week? More than just good to look at, they made a tasty pie. Perhaps we could call it Mahatma Apple Pie, being that the usual array of spices have been replaced with Indian flavors of jaggery and garam masala.

Reflection


This is my reflection in the window as I paint before sunrise, a phalaenopsis orchid and Radio Paradise for company.

Lowden Headstock


The headstock on a Lowden O25c guitar has a sweetly lyrical form adorned with the best of machine heads. This is the art of the luthier at it's finest.

Five Acorns


Signs of late summer - five acorns and a cicada husk arranged on a wing of driftwood.

Two Fields


Both fields have been mowed and rolls of hay lay about like giant grazing beasts. A large flock of crows feed on the exposed grasshoppers. In the hedgerow growing flocks of starlings, blue birds, goldfinches are gathering, feeding on the chokecherries, insects and grass seeds. I hear the sound of crickets, the wing beats of a hawk passing close and farm machinery in a far field.

Jack In The Pulpit Berries


The brilliant red berries of Jack In The Pulpit are a startling contrast to the overwhelming green of August.
Found in the shade of wooded areas, these berries are best left untouched.

Thistles


Backlit by the rising sun, the spines of thistles are haloed in light, floating on a bed of Queen Anne's Lace.

Welcome


Painting inside on a rainy day, looking out the front door.
The aroma of wild blueberry muffins baking in the oven and a fresh pot of coffee brewing. Wouldn't it be nice to see a friend coming up the steps?

GumBalls

Happy birthday Kristina.

Who hasn't heard "don't play with your food!" Well, I suppose gumballs aren't actually food, but they are fun to play with. A painting for the child in all of us.
