Willow Ridge Pond

Willow Ridge Pond, 2.5" x 3.5"
A pond near my home, painted in the spring of 2016.

Favorite part: the grassy shadow.

River Sky

River Sky, 2.5" x 3.5"


Another view of the Niagara River, where the clouds seemed bigger than the river. 

Favorite part: the dark cloud at the middle top, containing so many colors. 

Niagara River


Niagara River, 2.5" x 3.5"
Painted from a photo taken on my 30th wedding anniversary, August 7, 2016. My husband, Dan, and I stood on the rocks lining the river, holding hands, and absorbed the fresh air, comfortable breeze, and waterside view of the clouds. 

Favorite part: the sparkling water. 

Erie Canal

Erie Canal, 2.5" x 3.5"
I wanted to catch the interesting aqua color of the water in the canal on this August day.

Favorite part: the way the light changes as the canal turns.

Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden, 2.5" x 3.5"

Painted from photos taken on an outing to Delaware Park in Buffalo NY, on a hot summer day.

Favorite part: the multi-colored tree at the top of the steps.

Akron Falls Park

Akron Falls Park, 2.5" x 3.5"
Catching up here, after a half-year of little artwork. This painting was done from photos I took on a delightful day painting at Akron Falls Park, NY, last summer.

Favorite part: the shimmer on the bank of vines at the bottom.
