1964 Dodge Dart


24 x 24


My first car was a 1964 Dodge Dart.  It was also a first car for each of my sisters.  At the time we didn't think it was such a 'cool' car but now I would be proud to drive it; especially with history rewritten in cherry red!

Waiting for Rain

One of many  Indiana farms battling the worst drought in decades. We've had a few occasional showers lately - but it's too little too late for many.

Bassin d'Argenteuil, c.1874

18 x 24

Not for sale

This is my version of Claude Monet's Bassin d'Argenteuil.  A framed print of Monet's painting came with our home when we bought it in 1996 and has hung above the fireplace ever since.  The old print had become wavy and warped and the frame had seen better days.  So, a couple of weeks ago I decided to repaint it.  Bassin d'Argenteuil will resume it's place in a new hand-crafted frame with a black crackle/gold finish.  I'm so excited to see this refreshed Monet!
