Sweet Thoughts


A little bit of springtime is sitting on my table.

Golden Gardens Pond

Click here to bid.

My painting buddy, Victoria Biedron, and I went over to Golden Gardens on Tuesday afternoon to do a little painting. It was cold, but so, so beautiful. It was a delight to be outside.

With this painting, I tried to repeat the lavender-blue in the sky, the Coburg hills in the distance, and the pond toward the front of the painting. The fields are mostly a golden color, but bits of green are beginning to show through.

Ricketts Road


This afternoon was perfect for painting outside - brisk and cloudy, but dry. Although much of the landscape still wears winter drab, hints of spring color are beginning to break through.

Primroses are one of the first harbingers of spring. So happy to have this little plant to paint - it makes my heart sing!

Pass Creek

On Monday, my painting buddies, Patti McNutt and Victoria Biedron, and I drove south to the little lumber town of Drain, Oregon to do some plein air painting. We found an ideal spot to paint on the bridge over Pass Creek - the little creek that runs through the town. It's still winter here, but there was a hint of spring in the air. It was a joyful day.
