Meadowlark Heron
Meadowlark Heron

On a recent trip to Meadowlark gardens in VA, I spotted this heron waiting by the side of the pond for something tasty to swim by. He saw me standing beside a tree with my camera, and gave me a look that seemed to say "go ahead and photograph me, just don't come any closer." Then he turned his gaze back to the water.

I had the good fortune to be out with the Sketch Club on a perfect day for being outdoors. I happened upon this peaceful pond as the clouds were sauntering across the sky, and the birds were serenading the artists swarming this beautiful property.

The Path to Peace

I painted this from some photographs I took at Stone Tower winery over the weekend. It was another beautiful spring-like day, and everyone in Loudoun County seemed to have the same idea we did. In an effort to find a little space for ourselves, we followed the path down to the pond, where there was less people and noise. I am calling this painting The Path to Peace.⠀

Obsessed

I used to be quite obsessed with orchids. I had a huge collection of unusual varieties. But that was in the days before I had children. Once the boys arrived, one by one, my orchids began to succumb to benign neglect. I've had this tiny one for a few years now, and I'm beginning to think it might be time to start collecting them again.
