Sunflower Gloriana

I love late summer, because the prairie land is blanketed with sunflowers. They grow wild here in great bunches on thick green stalks. Before the wind changes to the north, nature provides us this one last show of glorious color to remind us of her goodness. My rendition has undulating stone texture, deep layers of […]

Mudpie Moon

The Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumn equinox, a brightly lit orb to illuminate the field. Nature’s gift to help us be industrious to gather in our work before a season of rests sets in. It is one of my favorite moons, an orange lantern ascending from the Eastern sky. My […]

The Blue Flower

Blue flowers are unique and rare, symbolizing a journey to discover ourselves. A longing to find our place in the world and find beauty in all things. My rendition has undulating stone texture with rust, rainwater, acrylic, oil stick and sea salt. It is smudged with cleansing wild sage. May it inspire peaceful meditation on […]

Moonrise over the Bones of the Earth

Happy Like a Zinnia

Zinnias are flowers of endurance. I like their style, bright and joyful in the face of searing summer heat. Because not much stops a zinnia, they were my flower of choice in my childhood gardening days. I couldn’t wait to see what colors the flower packets produced. This painting is a homage to simple pleasures. […]

Blue Moon

Growing up on the Kansas prairie strongly influenced my love of nature. Here it is so dark that the moon takes center stage amid a canopy of stars, inspiring wishes in the hushed silence. It inspired a new series of minimal moons featuring an orb of heavy stone on canvas molded with organic grain to […]
