The Owl’s Flight Chronicles 

The Grieving Tree

The gnarled tree has stood sentinel for generations, deep in the outer reaches of the Forest of Sorrows. It lives, never growing green, yet never dying  or rotting away, next to a chill, bottomless, crystal pool of water salted by tears.  The Grieving Tree can somehow...

The Return to the Virtual

Hello! It's been a awhile... After a hiatus of a few years, I've returned to dust off this blog and share some more scattered thoughts, special memories, and random insights into life and art. I've continued to write and paint often during my absence, but have been...

Within

Painting on the front porch during warm summer days is one of my "Most Favorite" things! This image is the result of a "just for fun" session on a hot summer day. I'd been finding little snail shells in the woods...left by birds, or fairies, as little treasures to be...

Braiding It Back Together

We all have those days! Those" not-so-great" sort of days that prompt you to call and vent to your best friend.  It was one of those days, and a comment she'd made during that call that inspired this painting. She was wishing we could gather up and braid  all the...

Rita’s Garden

I've been blessed with an amazing mother, and blessed yet again with my "other mother", my step-mom, Rita.  She is a wonderful addition to our family, and is known for her love of gardening and her incredible potato salad!  I'd been offering to paint Rita a special...

Winter Whimsy

This piece, depicting a father and his two young daughters enjoying a North Dakota winter evening will always have a tender place in my heart. It was commissioned by my friend and high school English teacher, Rick Hilber, for the cover of his book, "Down the Highway,...

Triplicity

A gathering of owls is officially called a parliament. Sometimes a group of owls is referred to as a brood, nest, looming or wisdom. These three owls seem to have been interrupted mid-conversation. They almost appear a bit guilty, as if they were caught plotting some...

Bliss

Wearing nothing but a smile...and such a smile! Bliss is joy, supreme happiness, the feeling of being in heaven or paradise. We all want it; we strive for it. It is usually the ultimate goal. Being "blissed out" is generally a wonderful thing! The title for this piece...

Whimsy

Whimsy...an unusual, or fanciful idea. I had just opened a brand new box of paints. 48 colors to play with, and that is exactly what I wanted to do ~ Play! I wanted to paint without worrying about perfection or realism. I veered away from my "normal" and ended up...

Wrought in Moonlight

The light of the full moon glimmering on intricately coiled wrought iron gates draws you along the darkened path to a peaceful and serene oasis. This is a place of quiet, of rest, of reflection amid moments of time that fade from one to another unnoticed. 11" x 14"...

The Little Blue Room

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” ― Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island Most mothers, in the midst of raising young children, can't possibly fathom what the house will be like when the kids are older. What would life be like...

Nothing is Constant but Change

"The Secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm." ~Aldous Huxley I'm a woman in my 40's going through major life changes. (I know, very cliché. This is the age where life changes are supposed to happen....

Shine

This piece is loosely based on a photo my daughter took of herself and emailed to me. (Having her live all the way across the country would be even more difficult without current technology!) Olivia has always been originally inventive with her make-up. Artfully...

The Song of Spring

Every so often I feel the urge to create a new fairy, and this beautiful girl was very much inspired by my cabin fever and the late March desire for Spring! I had an entirely different color scheme and background in mind when this piece was first sketched. But, as I...

Simple Pleasure

This piece is loosely based on a photo taken by my wandering little sister. She possesses a gypsy-soul and is currently vagabonding around Asia. She spent some down time on a beautiful beach in Thailand and snapped a photo of a group of young girls enjoying an evening...
