Note: There will be no prints made of this painting. If you are interested in the original, please contact me.

I wrote of this painting in my Quarry House Blog this morning.  In the blog, I wrote “….  All the same, I am glad to be painting again. I am glad to be in the studio a couple of days a week. Glad to see my thoughts and emotions showing up in color and line again. This little painting, for instance, is called “Homer’s Garden.”

I was thinking about my former father in law, Homer Duty. I loved that man and I was terribly sad at his loss. I still feel it some days, particularly in the spring. He loved his yard and loved his garden, and he loved the people around him.

He would have been sad that his daughter and I divorced, but he was of such a spirit, that had he lived, I believe he would have stayed a friend. And he would have liked the woman I am marrying in a few weeks. He would likely have given me something from his garden.

The forsythia are blooming, and one of them came from a cutting from one of his forsythia bushes. I have carried those cuttings with me from place to place ever since he passed, and when they begin to bloom, I think of him.

Art for Christmas


Christmas is coming, and for some, that means thinking about original art work as a gift.  I am offering any of my original paintings at 20% off between now and Christmas.  This applies to any painting except those in galleries (the gallery owners who show my work deserve to get full price.).

In some cases, this makes the originals cheaper than prints!

So peruse the blog, or look through the galleries at Fine Art America and if there’s something that catches your fancy, drop me an e-mail and we’ll arrange shipping.
