Summer Lighthouse

I want to share Summer Lighthouse for the upcoming Memorial weekend.  Although Spring is still very chilly here in Pennsylvania I am dreaming of the ocean and warmer days ahead.

  I love Adirondack chairs and I feature them in many of my paintings.  I painted them red in this scene with a red, white and blue Mariners Compass Quilt and matching pillow.

A field of daisies and butterflies surround the Lighthouse.

May Day!

Welcome to the beautiful month of May!  Flowers are bursting forth everywhere!  All of the trees this year are so colorful with the many shades of pink, white, purples and pretty red and fuchsia. 

April Showers do indeed bring forth May flowers.

The watercolor, "Floating Over Sisters" was painted when I resided in Oregon.  The Spring was so very beautiful there with snow covered mountains, and spring flowers of clover, rhododendrons, poppies, bear paw, and lupine. Enjoy the beautiful month of May!

Spring Joy!

 Spring is appearing more and more every day!  Spring Joy is a painting I did with the same red country store and home.  The rocking chairs have Spring Quilts surrounded by tulips, cardinals and dogwood blossoms.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 I just finished a fun watercolor of a Gnome celebrating St. Patrick's Day!  This is the first in a series of Gnomes in Holiday and Season paintings.

  I enjoyed painting something different!  I have prints, notecards, home decor, puzzles, stickers and much more of St. Patrick's Day Gnome on my Fine Art America website located at:

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
