We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Spring Peeper Triptych, 2'x4' acrylic on linen panels

Well, here they are together finally. I originally thought all three panels would be the same sizes, however it seems that by waiting to paint the last panel almost a year later, I miscalculated the size. Oh well, I still love the three together and the sepia monochromatic center almost gives the cattail an excuse for being a different size.

Peeper on Cattail, Acrylic on Linen, 24x48

OK, I'm thinking this will be the last of my "frogee" obsession! This painting completes the three frog paintings I intended to place together. I've painted my little Spring Peeper on a Dandelion, a Day Lilly and now a Cattail.... I'm done!

white moth on white peony 2'x4' Acrylic on linen

I don't know if I enjoyed painting this more than I enjoy looking at it finished.  Every time I view
it I seem to get caught in the petals and the journey starts again. This is the second time I've painted
this image. The original painting was one of eight sold to a corporation and the paint was barely dry.
I think I missed the "getting acquainted" time after a painting is finished, that happens for me as an artist.
One thing that I noticed about this piece is that it can be hung horizontally or vertically and the composition still works. I'm going to have a difficult time letting this one go.

"North Country Wind Blown" Acrylic on Linen 9x16 SOLD

I began this painting with a palette that reminded me of the old slate from Vermont. There's something warm about the underside of the leaves that the cold colors can't touch.
