The newborns.
Glad to be alive. 
Frolic and dance, bounce and bob, jump, and scamper, and skip on the green.
Spring is coming.

Just as the trees, flowers, vegetation, and animals share the earth; so do we. All colors, all countries, all creeds.

We are all ornaments on the tree of life.

Celebrate this diversitree.

Pastel, 9x12.

Thanksgiving gift

Our good earth bestows a gift each fall. 

From its watery bogs pop plumb ruby red jewels, if sweetened, grace our tables of Thanksgiving. Cranberries. 

Like 2020 they are bitter, but can be sweet.

Our stars 
The men & women who fight and fought for us.
They place freedom in the hands of the children of the future.
Thank you.

Halloween House

"Halloween House, 2007"

Moonlit night, 

a scarey sight, 

glimmer of light, 

a dose of fright– 

Who dares to knock?

A thank you on 9/11
I put up this painting in April in honor of the Covid workers, but now I revised it to include the firefighters and state troopers that came to our aid when our camper van burned on our way for a Labor Day vacation. 
Since today is 9/11 it's a reminder of how appreciative we are, and should be, of our 1st responders. 
Prayers for them as they fight the fires in California.

We are all in a whirling windstorm right now that's for sure, but this pastel painting and design was specifically commissioned for the cover of the book "Operation Windstorm" by Alaskan author Lori Townsend.

Island Breeze

Watercolor & gouache, 11x14
Island breeze. 
Filmy Curtains billow.
Exposing the verdant view.
No AC, no fans.
For the gentle winds caress. 
Light air fluffs the dress for night.
A tropical drink in sight.
