A Prayer and Art

Lord support us all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done.

Then, of Thy great mercy grant us safe lodging, and holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Nature notes and art.

The close observer of nature notes her signs with keen awareness. He watches the sky and landscape detecting changes almost before they occur. If there is a phenomenon he is first to behold it for his senses are tuned to the sights and sounds of the universe.

The Mountains are Calling


New painting.

Title:The Mountains are Calling -As an outdoors woman, the thought process with this one was to  leave hectic living at the front door and explore the great outdoors. I used thick organic shapes and flowing movement with the frosting of ice and snow to express the sights and sounds of the wilderness. The subtle earthy contrast hinting at the first dim lights of dawn and intimate size appeal on a gut level if you enjoy the meditative atmosphere of nature as I do.

Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas – sides are painted black. It can be hung as is or framed. I have several of this size on display on my book shelves.
