"Peonies and Pears" Those of you who garden know that peonies (at least in Michigan) bloom for little more than one week. If I'm lucky, I get two peony paintings in a summer! While I used peonies as minor players in a couple other pieces this year, this is THE peony painting of 2017! Giclee prints on paper and canvas are available of this piece. No reproduction will be made the same size as the original, and while the ink is archival and lasts over 100 years, prints are made for one life of pleasure but do not make heirlooms or retain the value of original art. If that's what fits your wants and budget, please visit the cards and gifts page! This painting is an original oil on panel and measures 24"x 24". If you buy it now, I can frame to suit. Expert packing and shipping available. $4,600

"Hydrangeas and Shells" This original oil painting measures 20" x 16" unframed. It's painted on panel. It's hard for me not to love natural found objects, books, and flowers together. They represent the calming and safe qualities that I seek for. I have a champagne/silver frame that fits this painting, although I'm considering framing all the florals of summer 2017 in the same frame series. It's available framed or unframed. Priced for framed. Expert packing and shipping available. $2,600

In the frame it measures: 26h x 22w x 2 1/4 deep.  Packing and shipping available. $2,600

"Hawthorn Hill" "Hawthorn Hill" was painted on my second year painting at this beautiful land trust farm. It's a lovely painting, and probably kicked off my pastoral landscape series. To me, pastorals are relaxing and sometimes slightly idealized places that make a sort of portal to a happy place. This painting is a 16"x20" original oil on linen. In the frame it measures: 22 1/2h x 26 1/2w.  Packing and shipping available. $2,600

"The Bride" I have titled this painting Ophelia, The Bride or Annunciation, but it really could bear many titles.  I don’t intellectualize my paintings while I work on them.  I choose my subjects intuitively.  Titles are slow in coming because I try not to anticipate where a painting will take me. A young woman is seated alone in her wedding dress in an undefined space that can be past, present, or future- all of which tumble about in her mind.  It is an iconographic moment.  Anna, as The Bride, represents to me those times of struggle between the ideal and the real.  She could be Mother Earth (Gaia), a struggling nation, or Mary at the Annunciation.  It is the moment when we recognize the real has supplanted the ideal, when the real subverts all imagined ideals.  The painting measures 40x36 and is oil on linen canvas. Being sold in its current pictured frame or in an alternative. Inquire for delivery/shipping options. $12,000
