Sanctum of Moss

Oil on Canvas 18" x 32"
Late in the days of spring with over saturated ground cover, water collects and spills into long carved paths over monkton quartzite (red rocks). Herb Robert, false solomon seal, and a butter cup needle thread through a blanket of moss that lays under a labyrinth of buckthorn and honeysuckle.

Unpicked Flower Bouquet
oil on canvas 10" 20"

Walking down along a path that meanders through a summer field of woods, Patches of wild flowers cluster together, swaying in the breeze. Black eye Susan, Queen Annes lace, and wild Bergamot look up toward a patchwork of bumbling clouds.

May Composition
30" x 24" oil on canvas

Walking through the forest during a May rain shower, the cascading sound of water echo’s deep into the roots of all things. I wanted to capture the feeling of being on the forest path, looking off into the woods and wondering “ what is That!” All the flowers and plants that grabbed my attention during this May spring hike are arranged in the painting. Jack in the Pulpit, Thimble weed, Golden Fairy Helmet (mushroom), Liver leaf, Two leaf Mitterwort, Columbine, False Solomon Seal, Trillium, Viola, Bluets, Choke Cherry, Garlic Mustard, Lilly of the Valley, Canadian Mayflower, Foam Flower, and Venus Maidenhair Fern.

Appalachian Autumn Movement
2018 24" x 48" oil on canvas. 

The sound of Rusty Black birds comb through the forest canopy with song as they migrate down the mountain chain into the south. The motion of transition between summer and winter, the curtain of leaves drop off giving a hemlock tree access to the open sky. The roots of the hemlock tree spent all summer digging deeper into the rocky ridge tilling stone and breaking them down.

Sunflowers Keep Better Time

12” x 12”  oil on canvas

On a hill overlooking the farm barn @ Shelburne Farms is a garden of vegetables and flowers. A large patch of sunflowers bob up and down in the wind “looking” around and at each other over watching a group of verbena. Human time falls short to the dance of the sunflowers.
