Secret Garden

Click here to bid

We each have a secret garden,
Where no one can intrude -
A haven of rest and quiet
and blessed solitude.

Lunch in Paris

Dang it! I didn't win the lottery. You didn't either? I know...let's console ourselves. We'll take the afternoon off and have lunch in Paris. I know a place...Restaurant Au Vieux Paris D'Arcole. It's just around the corner from Notre Dame, and right next door to Bertie's Cupcakery. There's a table waiting. We'll feel much better!

Newberg Oregon

Last July we took a walk around an old Newberg neighborhood and were stopped in our tracks by this wild profusion of flowers. I'm glad we thought to take a photo at that time - it was a joy to paint on this cold and foggy day.

The Out-of-Towners


I'm not sure where these little tulips originate. I found them at the market. It's way too cold for local tulips...maybe they're hothouse girls! Their hot color is certainly welcome on this frosty day.
