VALENTINE COMPLEMENTS 17 x 13"

On this last day of February I send you Valentine Greetings through this painting. I loved the complementary colors of the sky and the flaming maple tree. It was SO red it made me think of Valentine hearts. Notice the paint on the boulder on the left. The initials proclaiming their love for all to see were already there, but I changed them to reflect my maiden name and my husband's. D.K. + S.M., still together after 38, soon to be 39 years.

SUMAC

I enjoy painting in my studio in the winter, where I can transport myself to any season using my field sketches, photographs, and imagination as I try to recall my initial response to a particular time and place.

SNOWY BANKS 18 x 26

Deep snow covers the stream banks allowing very little vegetation to peak through. This painting depicts a cold, calm winter day; it seems the only thing moving is the stream.
