Spire

The view behind the tennis courts,
springtime.
First time out this year, on a cool and windy day.

Les Andelys

private collection

Spring is in the air! I'm looking forward to going outside!

I painted this canvas almost a year ago.
Nice to recall that afternoon on the banks of the Seine.
In the distance is the old Hotel Saint-Jacques,
now a hotel dieu - for the elderly - l'hôpital Saint-Jacques.
On the right is La Chaine d'Or (hotel and restaurant).

about the artist

White Salmon, Washington, United States
I have always enjoyed making things - learning to use the tools and properties/qualities of materials. My favorite place to renew is in a Forest, Alpine Meadow, or on a Lake; all are wonderful templates for living simply and elegantly! I started drawing at age 5 and worked in several media, eventually taking a minor in Fine Art along with my Science degrees. Later studies in Fiber, Surface Design, Book Arts and Painting support my work today. I continue to study painting through workshops and perseverance at my easel. I work on location and sometimes in the studio.
