Florida. Here we are for the week while Ted works. It’s quite different than the the places I call home in the northeast mid and south west. Different flora and fauna, lots of water everywhere and not all that walkable. Skyscrapers ans doublewides dominate the cities. Mosquitos and seabirds are all over the grasslands andContinue reading “Tropic of Cancer-Causeway”

East Brunswick Storage Unit
We have a lot of stuff…too much. We have a storage unit to accommodate all the forgotten memories, boxes packed decades ago, abandoned projects and other extraneous ephemera of the ages. We go there seldom because none of it really matters any more. It’s just that it’s hard to let go so we pay overContinue reading “East Brunswick Storage Unit”

San Pedro Cactus 2
The San Pedro Cactus is a gorgeous plant. They grow tall and wide and have straight regular columns or can be quite gnarly and contorted, depending on the growing environment and genetic mutations. The one I’ve painted is of the gnarly type. It grows at altitudes of 2-3,000 ft and is a known hallucinogen. What’sContinue reading “San Pedro Cactus 2”
Small Mouth Bass
Small Mouth Bass are found in waters of the US, north to south East to west. The fish shown here was caught in the Adirondack Park in New York. It’s a little unusual in that it was a yellow ocher color. Most are in the green grey range. Perhaps the anomaly can be explained byContinue reading “Small Mouth Bass”

Birdseye view of Buck the Cat eyeing the bird.
I painted a masonite board with QOR watercolor ground which allows me to paint on a surface that, untreated, will not absorb the watercolor pigments. After an under painting of watercolor, I filled in shading and detail with casein, a more durable water media. Usually I use 140 or 300# watercolor paper. Comparing the hardboard groundContinue reading “Water Plants”
Daily Cat 211
Daily Cat 211 – Buck is vacationing in Wisconsin for the summer. He likes it there, sort of. There’s a big, husky white and tabby queen that thinks Buck’s encroaching on her domain and has nicked him in the ear to make certain there’s no misunderstanding about what’s hers and not his. Other than that,Continue reading “Daily Cat 211”

Hairwing Western Green Drake
The internet says that this fishing lure was ‘created by Rene Harrop in the 1980’s.’ It’s used in the summer when insects are hatching and fish are eatin’ ’em. I prefer chips and salsa…
Muddler Minnow – Traditional
The Muddler Minnow was first tied in 1936 by a guy from Minnisota, Don Gapen by name. It imitates a sculpin and is of the ‘streamer’ body type. It’s a very popular pattern, tied by many with a lot of variations. The one shown here is basic and traditional. My husband says the nose coneContinue reading “Muddler Minnow – Traditional”
wild Burros of Maricopa County
When we go fishing at Lake Pleasant in Maricopa County, AZ, we sometimes see some of the burros that live in the surrounding hills and gorges. They’re skinny little creatures but they go and do what they like, a condition of being feral. Desert Life suits them.

There’s and old, old apple tree at the Comanche Venable trailhead in Colorado. No one tends it now but the browsing deer. It’s grown scraggely and wide as the years pass. In spring its whitepink blooms billow in the montane sun. By September the fruit finally ripens to a sour, wormy greenred, hard and plump, abundantContinue reading “Wild Apples”
