One of the best things about being artists is that we have some really great artist friends. Our friend Terry Miller gave us this beautiful drawing of our son. Paddy is sitting on the bridge in the village and he's in a mood. The heron was christened "Jimmy" by my mom. He's one of the regular visiters to this part of the creek.

Well folks , please be patient with my web site. I am in the process of redoing it . Go to Julia's... It's so great , I am going to copy her!! Oh by the way, I grew this monster 40lb watermelon this summer. I'm the chubby one in the hat, with my son Paddy and friend James.

Julia and I played hookie this afternoon. We took the sailboat out and watched the sunset.(this is one I painted earlier!!) The bay was so beautiful. The wind was constant, and we had it all to ourselves, except for the geese and a few eagles. I love it here!!

We live on Leeds creek, a tributary of the miles river. During the summer we spent many happy hours cruising up and down the river in and around St Michaels . The skipjack in my painting (the Herman Krantz) was returning to St Michaels harbour during the wooden boat festival weekend.

I have just finished this painting. It was my center piece for the Waterfowl Festival. I love painting the ocean. I love the power of the breaking waves contrasted with the elegance of the laughing gulls. My horizon looks rather wonky in this photo... very annoying.
