Email me for purchasing information

This beautiful work was created from a photo my daughter, Andrea, took on the grounds of  the Yaddo Artist Retreat in Saratoga Springs, current home town.

It's not possible to appreciate the beauty of this painting from the photographs. My ongoing attempts to improve my painting skills and patience culminated in this painting. Notice the little heart shape just above the leaves toward the bottom right...this is actually how this spark of light appeared in the original photograph! Amazing, isn't it! I like to think it represents the love I have for my daughters and granddaughter, who are my greatest blessings in this life.

This painting is leaving home for the month of May to be exhibited at The Saratoga Visitor's Center in Saratoga Springs, NY along with twenty of my other paintings. Stop in if you're in town. They would love to see you.
