A simple bouquet of Oenothera along with my garden scissors. This is from my garden in June 2009.

Eye-filling paintings and photos excite me. Mine are inspired by the interplay of color, especially when it creates a cheerful and thoughtful impression. I am a photographer/writer/artist and love both nature and tech stuff. I also publish garden books — see my website. Thanks for looking at my work.

    This is such a perfect composition for a painting, it almost looks like one!! Great work!! ;-)))

  • I have used this one for many homemade cards. Thanks for the fave and compliment! This photo is from last spring and was halfway back in my too many pages so I moved it to the beginning.
