Framing Artwork

Getting ready to frame landscape paintings for the Gallery. These two pieces of artwork are each 4×4″ inch miniatures.

Do you prefer buying or selling artwork that is framed or unframed? I sell a little of both.


Painting from life


Time is infinitely long and each day is a vessel into which a great deal may be poured,if one will actually fill it up.

New 8×8″ Late Afternoon Shadows / Pole Barn : oil on canvas.×8-pole-barn-farm-ranch

Only a wise man draws from life and from every stage of it, its true savour, because only he feels the beauty, the dignity and the value of life. The flower of youth may fade but the summer,the autumn,and even the winter of human existence have their majestic grandeur,which the wise man recognizes and glorifies. – Amiel



Summer isn’t supposed to last forever…


“Cold front is approaching”, is the prettiest phrase I’ve heard in months. Summer isn’t meant to last forever dear. 

I’m setting the stage in my studio for some instant inspiration , a pathway to winters door and some nature inspired artwork. I think some can relate to this type of experience. ☺️


Autumn danced in like a fairy queen touching her wand ever so lightly over the farm,changing everything,creeping along in a graceful,quiet,assured way,sweeping the pathways clean that lead to winters door.

Breaking Records on the Homefront

We had a little snow thankfully on Sunday which put out most of the ghastly historically record breaking wild fire we had here in Kansas. Between Okla. and Kansas 400,000 acres were burned. It didn’t take long to melt and the temps were back up in the 70’s the next day.


My son and I broke our walking record this week as we made it to the 13 mile mark which is roughly 4 hours on the trail. Good times.


Pictured also is my horse Redee. She was definitely feeling the crazy weather an did not care for the wildfire smoke that nearly blotted out the sun.
