Hi All

It is a beautiful spring day here at our house on Vulture Mountain in Gaysville, Vermont.  We moved into our little log cabin full time last September after 25 years of traveling back and forth from Massachusetts and Virginia when our permanent homes were there.  What a gift!  No matter what the weather is, the view across the White River Valley toward the Delectable Mountains is always amazing.  Today it is every shade, tint and hue of green from the bright yellow green of new leaved maples and birches, to the dark rich green of the pine trees.
I’ve always loved landscape, so this is a wonderful place for me to land.  The newly plowed fields, the fast moving river, the rock formations, the hills and mountains and sky nourish me in a way that nothing else does.  And so my paintings reflect this interest—or maybe passion.   As abstracts, they reference the shape, movement and colors of land and sky. 
Most recently I have been working on a series of acrylics on gessoed paper that are based on nebulae as photographed by the Hubble Telescope.  The Eagle Nebula is a landscape in formation. Order out of chaos or chaos out of matter?  It is an amazing window into our past and future.
