Summertime!!

 Summer is here and so is the 2022 Kutztown Folk Festival!!  I have been putting together my art in to prints, frames, note cards and fabric for several months.  I am excited to be in the Quilt Barn this year!!

The heat and humidity are here as well as beautiful summer flowers, lightning bugs, sunshine, thunderstorms and more that is all the part of Summer.

After Kutztown, I will be back in my studio that has been collecting dust since March, with getting ready for Kutztown, I can hardly wait to paint some summer scenes!!  I have been collecting ideas!

Have a wonderful Summer!  I hope to see you in Kutztown July 2-10, 2022!

It is Spring!!

 It has been a while since I posted my blog.  I was very busy creating my painting for the Kutztown Folk Festival 2022.  It was delivered last week, and I had a great time painting this very special watercolor for the Festival in July.

I also have been creating fabric for a website that has fabric that is made here in the USA.  I am very happy with my collection so far.  My fabric collection will be available at my summer shows and also at:

I promise to post more as my shows start.  Enjoy Spring and all the beautiful flowers!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

 Here it is already February!  I have noticed that daylight is longer and this morning for the first time I heard cardinals singing Cheer! Cheer!  All our snow melted due to several days of rain that with the cold temperatures leaving behind ice.  So, I am careful when I step outside to feed my birds in the morning!

I always love the month of February with my Birthday and followed by sweet Valentine's Day.  A special day of love to your family and friends. Enjoy this sweet month!  💟

Happy New Year 2022!

 Welcome to the New Year of 2022.  Wishing everyone a very Happy, healthy and creative New Year.

The Christmas season went by so fast for me.  I am still painting my new Christmas art that I usually complete on New Year's Day.  I enjoyed the Christmas season very quietly in my studio and celebrating Christmas Day itself with my sisters Mary and Anne.

I will leave my holiday decor up a few more days as I enjoy the lights in the dark mornings and evenings.


I hope everyone had a great Christmas Season!  Always sad for me when it is over for another year!!

Christmas Season 2021!

 I have been very busy this Autumn with a few shows and a creative painting time.

I can't believe the Christmas season has officially started. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you all did too!

Time to get out my Christmas cards with new art painted especially for Christmas.

I hope to get a lot of Winter painting done.  I love Winter and find this is my favorite time to paint.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!  And enjoy the Christmas season!

Welcome Autumn!

 Today begins the Autumn season!  I love the beautiful changing of leaves to orange, red, yellow and gold.  This is always my favorite season. Pumpkins in the fields along with flowering mums.  The geese are honking past my studio window!  Enjoy Autumn!

September Gold

 September is the golden month when Summer becomes Autumn.  The days are still warm, the morning hour sunrise is later.  I love seeing the Summer and Autumn flowers as well as ripe red apples appearing on the apple trees.  There is a hint of red, yellow and orange in the trees.

Enjoy the arrival of the Season of Autumn!
