Nest Egg 12 x 16 Oil on Panel

I found this nest in the dogwood tree a few months ago, but there was never a bird in it. I decided to take it down and use it for a painting. I liked how the bird had gotten the day lilly leaves from the front island for the nest on the side of the house. A few weeks later a new nest was in the exact spot and I felt so bad about taking the first one. The bird once again didn't have any babies or sit in the nest. This time I will wait until fall to take it out then again I may just leave it there.

Flying Solo 8 x 10 Oil on Panel

Many times in life I have felt like I was flying solo. This happens to be one of those times. Thank God for my good friends and their support! Today I was reading the September issue of American Artist Magazine, and there was an article about Dan McCaw. In it he states, "that he has been particularly moved by the idea that we are all ultimately alone, even when surrounded by familiar people and places." I totally agree.

Summer Home 12 x 12 Oil on Board

I just got back from the beach a week ago and I am ready for another beach trip. I miss my family's summer home on the Chesapeake Bay. It wasn't much, but it was great being on the water. This summer we went to Cape San Blas, Florida. If you don't want any communication with the outside world this is the place to go.
