THE HIGH ROAD TO HUMILITY

Former Senator Alan Simpson, in his eulogy for the late President George H.W. Bush, remarked that "those who travel the high road of humility in Washington D.C. are not bothered by heavy traffic." This painting feels like that exalted path we wish was more traveled.

TRANSITORY ENCHANTED MOMENT

"Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby's house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder." The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

SHE ONLY SMILES, I LAUGH

In Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth claims, "I am happier even than Jane; she only smiles, I laugh." This piece felt full of laughter and joy beyond a smile.

CARNEGIE LIBRARY

I belong to Sketch Hunters, a group of artists working together to capture our city in our art: its people, places, and moments. This piece was created from one of those sketches from a crisp autumn morning, sitting on a curb with my people, painting, telling stories, and laughing.

THAT LOVELY MORNING AT THE FARM

Unknown to most people, the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs has a small farm. I spent a June morning there painting, and these cone flowers were just one memory of that day.

MORNING IN OLD COLORADO CITY

One chilly November morning in 2018 I ventured down to Old Colorado City with my daughter. The morning light cast fantastic shadows everywhere, giving me an opportunity to experiment in just two colors: transparent orange and indanthrone blue.

WINDOW IN SARLAT-LA-CANÉDA

Travel is always inspiring to me. A trip to the Dordogne in 2015 led us to this quaint, walled medieval city. This was just one of many windows like this I found, but the stones! I could have spent days just exploring their color and beauty.

CHELSEA ABSTRACT

While on a trip to New York City, I spent an afternoon walking the High Line through Chelsea with my husband. We passed an apartment building with fantastic curved architecture. This piece is an impression of that fantastic building.
