  "Potted Daffodils"   This original oil painting measures 16" x 12" unframed. It's painted on panel. There are a few blooms that I try to catch every year, and daffodils are some of them. The winter (in Michigan) fruit is still in the picture, but soon the spring will give way to summer and we'll be on our way to the full fruit and flower. This is framed in an espresso brown frame and measures 18.5"x 22.5". Expert packing and shipping available.  $1400  (please message me to ask questions or arrange purchase)

In the frame it measures: 26h x 22w x 2 1/4 deep.  Packing and shipping available.  $2200 (please message me to ask questions or arrange purchase)

  "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.  $2200 (please message me to ask questions or arrange purchase)

  "Lucretia"   This painting was painted from life in Florence, Italy. The model was a young woman from Sardinia, but my initial concept for the piece was based on a Rembrandt painting of Lucretia.

In its custom American-made frame it measures: 53"h x 48"w x 1" 3/4d.   Please inquire for delivery/shipping options and price.

  "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.  Inquire for price
