And now for something completely different…

 For whatever reason I have decided to start making Pineneedles baskets. They keep my hands busy and my mind at rest and they’re just plain fun. I’m sure I’ll never get my time back out of these as they take about a day each to make.

I’ll have a bunch of these at the sale at Trinity Episcopal Church Downtown on Sunday, 3 December

Canning pears SOLD!

 Canning pears

This is a painting that I did after my mom passed away. She wants describe to me one of her favorite scents and sights as a young girl was opening the cellar door to smell the bushel baskets of apples that were stored there, and to see the shelves lined with all different colors of preserves, and canned vegetables. We had just had a big harvest of pears ourselves and I was in the process of making pear wine and canning pears. I decided that I would run out and pick some flowers that were also blooming in the yard and create a still life in her honor. I just sold the painting a few days ago to a friend from church. I’m glad it went to a good home



This little painting was completed last year actually and then revisited this last week. I made a few changes so that the daffodils would be the main focal point. I had to areas that were fighting against each other, the daffodils and the flowering almond and so I knocked the almond down a bit.

Cathy’s painting

 My friend from high school asked me to do a painting for her of her favorite place in the world. This is the walkway that leads to her paradise. I used the photograph that she sent to me and one that I took earlier this year at the beach and combined them both for the finish painting.

 There was a leak in the gallery and it damaged one of my favorite paintings. I worked today to repair the damage.

These are out of order, but you get the idea.… Good as new!

Both are 6 x 8 and can be purchased for $90 each Via an email message to me using my nickname Margee and my last name and sending it through Gmail. Everything is lowercase

SOLD! A strange and stormy day a 20 x 24 oil painting

 A strange and stormy day A 20 x 24” oil painting. 

Coming out of the grocery store I noticed that a storm was brewing. I knew also that I only had moments to race to my car before I would be driving in the pouring rain. The clouds were too interesting though so I stayed and snapped several photographs before hitting the road. This painting was inspired by those photos. It is for sale for $700. My nickname is Margee and if you put that together with my last name in all lowercase letters you can send me a request through my  Gee mail Address. I would say click the contact button but I keep getting a lot of spam through that button.

The little creek on our land

 The little creek on our land is running now and is crystal clear as it usually is. This time of year phlox are growing at the edge of the stream and all along the railroad track… Or what was once a railroad track and is now just a pretty green path through the woods. I have been in the habit of doing little 6 x 8 plain air sketches of all of the seasons of the creeks and the land. This one is actually a little larger and is an 8 x 10 on board
