Summer is Over!

 This Summer went by so fast for me!  I can't believe that in a few days Autumn will be here!  I see mums, pumpkins and pumpkin flavored everything including my morning cup of coffee.

This is my favorite season, and I am sketching an Autumn scene to be painted in my studio.

Enjoy this beautiful season of pumpkins, color of leaves in rich reds, yellows and oranges!

 I just finished two of my biggest shows of summer, the Kutztown Folk Festival and the NE Ohio Quilt show.  I enjoyed both shows so very much!  I am planning on painting in my studio in August and having some time to enjoy summer.  My next shows start in September.

I am getting ready to print some new Christmas card designs and new card packs.

I hope you are enjoying the warm, sunny, thunderstorms of summer!

Happy Summer!

Happy Mother's Day

 A personal note on my blog as I remember my beautiful Mom on Mother's Day.

I was so blessed to have a kind and loving Mom.  It has been so difficult missing her every day.  She loved her family and gave my Dad and her daughters a great home full of love, family meals and celebrating special occasions and holidays. Forever in my memory and heart.

Thank you, Mom!!

 I have been very busy!  I did not realize I last posted on my Blog in February!  I have been continuing my fox series of paintings.  In my studio I am painting a fox in the spring with tulips, dogwood blossoms and more!  I am also cutting mats, framing and getting my note card packs together for my upcoming summer shows. Happy Spring!!

The Winter with no Snow

 Yes, so far this has been the Winter with no snow in Pennsylvania!!  Although I don't miss the shoveling, I sure do miss the beauty of a snow-covered landscape.  I finished my Christmas painting for 2023!  I really enjoyed this painting. Look for the squirrel peeking out of the branches in the pine tree!!  I am sharing it here first on my Blog.  It will be my Christmas card this year.  I am still excited about my fox series.  So next it will be more foxes with flowers!!

Enjoy the rest of Winter!  I know I am!!

Happy New Year!

 Happy 2023!  Enjoy the New Year!  I have a few months to create before the shows start.  I hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas Season.  I know I did!  I am always sad when it is over, and I see all the decorations being taken down.

I am painting a series of foxes in my studio.  I have a fox that appears in my yard often and I love watching him! 

Enjoy my first fox of my series!  He may become my Christmas card for 2023.

 Yes, the months flew by once again!  Here it is 16 days until Christmas!  I exhibited at several shows and am now back in my studio painting and filling holiday orders.

Today is the first snow, wintry mix of the season.  I love the snow days best!  I hope to begin my annual Christmas painting today!  I am so behind on my painting schedule.  I am happy to show you the painting Christmas Tree Farm that was painted for 2022!

Merry Christmas and a very Happy 2023.  Enjoy this special Holiday Season with family and friends!
