Sky Reflections
11x14 oil on wood panel

I am drawn to river views and love exploring the possibilities in paint.  We painted on an old bridge overlooking the river this week.  The water was low exposing little islands along the way.  The sky was filled with clouds that reflected on the water making a beautiful spot to paint.

Loving on Rosie

Now, during these times of required stay-at-home guidelines and pent-up frustrations, I cherish my precious pet, Rosie who provides us with unconditional love and happiness.  Making the decision to bring home our Mini Aussie during this time was the best decision we could have made.  We were fortunate to adopt her at 10 weeks old in early February before the Covid-19 pandemic had set in. She is helping us get through the isolation period and will help us have good memories of this difficult time. 


This is Rosie enjoying a belly rub in the warm sunlight.
This will be part of an on-line show centered on the Covid 19 pandemic with Dutch Art Gallery.
