Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. In honor of Mother Earth I am posting a couple examples of her beauty. The first is of the rolling hills of Sonoma Valley in California. The other is of the mountains of Wyoming, early September, with low clouds hovering around the peaks. The other is of the rolling hills of Sonoma Valley in California.
More and more I find myself connected to this Earth. Certainly more aware and appreciative than I was in my youth. The Earth does earn her name as Mother for she is truly like a mother to all living things. Giving life and nourishment, providing us with shelter and beauty, singing us lullabies that whisper through the trees and grass and letting us know when we have been out of line when she shows us her anger. We certainly cannot keep taking and taking and destroying this source of life. If we continue there will be no more beautiful landscapes to enjoy, no more flowers to smell, no more songs of nature, no more us.
So enjoy the day... go outside, take a walk, sit by a stream, plant some flowers, breathe in the air and enjoy the sunshine.

They say it's my birthday

It's my birthday and spring is here. It's sunny, warm and judging from the squirrels in my backyard, love is in the air. Life is good! While I should have painted a birthday cake, I'm sticking to my ongoing fixation with flowers.

Waiting for Spring

Spring is taking it's time coming to Minnesota. I'm ready for some flowers. Trips to the nursery and immortalizing them in paint will have to do for now.

Red Onion

6 x 8
Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD
This red onion had such a beautiful deep coloring I couldn't resist painting it. I was also intrigued by the garlic scapes that accompanying it. So intrigued that I'm sure there will be more studies of them in the future.

The Promise of Spring

Although it is a snowy April day, I'm finding the promise of spring in this little bouquet of Freesia Buds.
