Back to the Creek and to the Easel (for now)

After what felt like a long cold winter Friday and Saturday’s warm sunshine felt like such a gift. I took Dini and Maggie back to one of our favorite places for walking, swimming, and inspiration. I also have returned to the easel in preparation for a couple of exciting events; the Art of Caring last […]

Welcome home

In situ. Recently hung Pool, a recent mixed media painting in my foyer and caught some lovely morning light as it dwelled among some of my sculptures and plants.   Whether you are coming, or going, living with art creates peace, and a sense of place.

And, besides the exercise, fresh air and natural beauty of Chester County, […]

We walked, we […]

Long Shadows

“The curse of cancer created a strange and strained existence, challenging me to be neither blind to, nor bound by, death’s approach. Even when the cancer was in retreat, it cast long shadows”.    Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air I can’t remember if I thought about death much before cancer, or maybe, I recognized […]

Each participant comes a few hours a day  to paint, draw, and this year, make prints with my table top press. “A most delightful […]
