Inspirations and sketches from my studio in the Catskill Mountain. The solitude of my Artist Retreat compels me to keep exploring, seeing, experimenting, and painting all the picturesque quality outside my window.
Really like the snowy nocturne sketch from the other day. I added some wildlife to this winter landscape, to tell a better story. I might find time today to post it as a greeting card. Would you buy this card?
Winter has always been one of quiet pleasure. This sketch is from memory. Driving home at night, the snowy fields glow in the semi-darkness, despite not having a full moon. When there's a full moon, the whole landscape is bright & magical.
New year, & new resolution to design a card a day. This teddy bear valentine design just got sold, which is why I'm working on a series of teddy bear & hearts today. My images are in layers these days, it's a matter of playing around with different combinations of layers. I love it best when my creative juices are flowing.
