June Is Almost Here

Wow, where did this week go? My Italian paintings sit on their easels looking about the same as they did a week ago. Too much is going on outside and that is one of the problems of living in a snow state. All winter long we are cooped up in our houses,… Continue

Spring Is My Favorite Time of Year

It’s been a tough week for me living in to paint. For one thing, those of us who live up here in Central New

York are enjoying all the beautiful Flowering Crab Trees which we have planted in our yards, and are now bursting in an array of pinks, reds and whites. Now the pinks and reds of the Flowering Crabs are being joined by the lavenders and purples of the many Lilacs… Continue

Colgate University Graduation Tradition Inspires Local Artist

Around the country, it is college graduation time once again. As a Central

New York artist living so close to

Colgate University, my thoughts are with this year’s class. Many colleges and universities have traditions that they have followed for a long period… Continue

Venice Painting Helps Artist in Time of Grief

I am so excited to share my newest art of the Mediterranean Sea, an oil painting of Venice with you. I think you will agree with me, it shows the beautiful canal city in a very good light (quite literally). This is one of my larger paintings at 28” by 40,” and was painted on linen, so chances are the painting will outlast Venice itself!

I have so many hours in this particular painting, that if I were really living in Venice it wouldn’t surprise me… Continue

Archaeological Drawings Inspires Americana Art

I found myself in Johnstown, New York, last weekend when I had the chance to go to the 95th annual conference of the New York State Archaeological Association with dear friends. I attended this conference last year as well, which was located in the Catskills. Because of my great experience last year, I was really looking forward to this one as well.

I have always… Continue

Royal Wedding Horses May Steal the Show

I have written my past two blogs about the royal wedding horse carriage and the people that drive them, now let’s focus on the horses that pull them. From the numerous records kept about the horses in the royal archives, it seems that chestnut-colored horses have never been used as harness horses in the Royal Mews (royal horse stables). Coincidentally, many years ago when I was taking dressage lessons, my instructor warned me to never buy a Chestnut Mare because they are high strung and act…

Royal Wedding Horses Influence my Horse Art

While everyone is talking about the Prince Henry and Kate’s royal wedding dress, food and jewelry, I am more concerned with the details about the  Royal Wedding Horse Carriage. I have painted  horse and carriage paintings…

Oregon’s Artsy Basketball Court Over the Line?

As an Upstate New York artist living a mere 45 miles from Syracuse, it’s hard not to get caught up in “Big East Basketball” and our Syracuse Orangemen. Now that my teams’ playing season is over, I began to wonder what happened to the… Continue

Cinderella Castle

As a resident of Upstate New York, I can tell you that our winters are long and dreary. I don’t think a day goes

by all winter when I don’t hear about Florida’s Disney World. It’s either a TV commercial advertising some fantastic deal you would be crazy not to take or the AAA Club magazine’s feature toting a wonderful family vacation to Disney World, to the subtle hints of… Continue

A Walk Down Memory Lane

Often it is with regret when we have the opportunity to travel down “Memory Lane” and find things not quite as we remembered them. I had a different experience. My recent trip down memory lane brought back some wonderful childhood memories.

It was a transitional time in my childhood having left Central New York for the sunshine state of Florida. I was 10 when we moved from the small college town of Hamilton, New York, to the beach town of Fort Pierce, Florida. We went from an old… Continue

Artist To The Presidents

Since it is February and National Presidents Day is Feb. 21, it has made me think about the man behind the presidents. It is hard to think of George Washington without visualizing the famous portrait of him painted by Gilbert Stuart. In fact, Stuart painted each of the first six presidents (John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and John Quincy Adams).

One of my childhood memories is stepping into any classroom at school and seeing a painting of George… Continue

An Italian Fountain Overflows With Inspiration

I love painting Italy and as an Italian painter, I have painted Italy over and over again, although I have to say

this was a unique painting for me to choose. I usually find myself painting

Italian seascapes and Italian landscapes. I seldom paint an object by itself. That is… Continue

Hamilton NY--My Kind Of Town

As many of you know, I live in Upstate New York, just 10 minutes from the small college town of Hamilton where the prestigious Colgate University is located on top of a scenic hillside. Since I can only paint static paintings of this charming town that I grew up in, I am posting a YouTube video link so you can take a tour of this special place.…

Cabin Fever In Upstate New York

It’s the middle of January, winter has really settled in here in Upstate New York. During the winter months, the routine doesn’t change much for this

Central New York artist and things can become a bit dull if you let them. My world has gotten so small that I am beginning to see art where I am not so sure art exist.…

My Ah Ha Moment

While walking the dogs this morning I had an epiphany. I look forward to my routine walks with our two dogs and so do they. They love the freedom of wandering free over our Central New York farm fields following the various scents that cross their paths. In my own way I am doing the same thing, following wandering thoughts that are crossing my mind. Every once in a while I have an epiphany and I had one of these “ah ha” moments the other day.…

World's Tallest Church Transports Me Back to Germany

While out hiking my dogs this week, slogging through the drifting snow, it wasn’t all that was drifting, my mind was too. Once again I found myself thinking back to some of the wonderful experiences I had while visiting my daughter and son-in-law in Europe a while back. One particular experience rises above all others, literally; and that is Ulm Münster, the tallest church in the… Continue
