Well used, this baseball reveals countless happy days when kids of every age tossed the neighborhood ball and ran the bases marked by a tree, lamp post, or even a sweatshirt tossed in a heap in the middle of the street as second base!

Casual Elegance - Capturing Nature's Transient Beauty - COMMISSIONS WELCOME

After dabbling in a vast array of subjects, I've finally decided to focus my new still life oil paintings predominantly on flowers which are my absolute favorite along with everything that can accompany them such as crystal, lace, glass jars, silverware, teapots and teacups contrasting with rustic, textural elements of painted wood, moss and nests. In other words, all my favorite things of beauty. As I state on my website homepage, "It's all about beauty in nature and antiques."

I was published in Visual Language Magazine

BLESSED

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.
