The other day, I was going through Grayling, and saw that my artwork is now up at the AuSable Artisan Village gallery. They did a really nice job with the exhibit, and there are some incredible artists there, as well as being genuinely nice people. Plus, the coffee is good – a huge plus forContinue reading “AuSable Exhibit”

The Family Complement: Acrylic Painting
I saw some sandhill cranes with gray plumage several months ago, and decided to create a painting that highlights the complementary tones between their gray-blue plumage and the rust colors of the autumn grasses. “The Family Complement”, acrylic, 16 X 20 inches.
Chickadee on Wild Roses: acrylic painting
“Chickadee on Wild Rose Arbor” acrylic 11 X 14 inches. I have a friend who has a beautiful arbor with wild roses that grow on it. A few months ago, I painted this picture, with a chickadee sitting as they often do on it. It is a nice reminder of the late summer time!
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah
I want to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah. This is a season when we think about the true Light of the World: Yeshua HaMeshiach, who was born 2000 years ago. This is what gives hope in a time when things can appear dark in our world: that He has overcome theContinue reading “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah”
Heron in the Marsh: acrylic painting
A few months ago, I found a heron in a marsh off of Misery Bay, and wanted to paint him. I used sgraffito technique for the grass, and wanted to experiment with getting a sense of light on the water. This was painted using my typical palette of ultramarine, yellow ochre, yellow hansa, burnt umber,Continue reading “Heron in the Marsh: acrylic painting”
Bunnykins in the Grass
This summer, I came across Bunnykins (the young rabbit that visits my feeder in the wintertime). He was sitting in the grass by the side of the road, looking sleek and happy. I knew it was bunnykins due to his coloring, and the fact that he was not shy at all when I walked near,Continue reading “Bunnykins in the Grass”

Chickadee on the Well: acrylic painting
As a Michigan artist, one thing I have learned to paint is snow in various lights. This is a painting of a chickadee, sitting on a friend’s snow-covered well cover. I did get a bit experimental, using alizarin crimson in some of the snow shadows. Otherwise, I used my normal palette. I love to watchContinue reading “Chickadee on the Well: acrylic painting”
Sparrows on a Fence
I painted this in acrylic a few months ago. My emphasis was on the shadows and lights. I used my typical palette to create this painting.
Chair on the Beach
Last fall, when bird watching, I happened upon this stone bench by the shore. It was lovely, with the water all around it, and I decided to paint it in acrylics. It was a challenge – and fun- to paint the light on the water. I added in a bird resting for a moment, sinceContinue reading “Chair on the Beach”
