From the porches and scenes of Lakeside, OH, to nearby Amish life to the winter wonderland that our area becomes, I find the local landscape to be ever-changing and a challenge to paint. There are other landscapes from my travels that you will also find here.

Music Street Melody

Music Street Morning

watercolor on watercolor canvas: SOLD

This is the street that my little Paintin' Place Studio was on, and I saw this every morning when I left to go into town. It was an enjoyable time, but I moved on, and the little house has been torn down.

Music Street Morning

Corner Store

watercolor: SOLD

Old buildings are captivating, and this one has fallen in total disrepair since I painted it. Even though snow is cold and blustery, I like the feeling that there might just be an old coal stove inside warming up the visitors.

Hillbrook Club
8" x 20" watercolor on Rtistx Board

This is a popular club in the hills north of town. Fine dining, swimming and tennis are offered in an English Tudor setting, with terraced gardens and a babbling brook.

SOLD

Winter Feeding Ground
40" x 60" watercolor canvas

Looking out my studio kitchen window this winter, I discovered that inspite of the severe cold, there was still water at the bottom of the hill, and the geese found a way to feed. In late afternoon the sun lit up the pockets in the snow on the hill, and I found the scene very serence.

 

Botswana Lagoon,
40" x 50" watercolor canvas $2000
This was a real challenge! I began very loosely, painting the sky and water....at such a slant that most of the paint slid off the canvas onto towels on the floor! I ended up having to work more opaquely and less of a slant to hold the paint on the canvas. This proved to be the best, as then I could just add a yellow over the blue to allow the two colors to mix into green. Of course, to intensify the green, I did use some green paint....cool and warm for variation. It is a very calm and serene scene and I am enjoying looking at it before it goes to a gallery.

Going with the Flow
SOLD
20" x 24" watercolor canvas
Utilizing the advantages of the watercolor canvas, I could create the counterpoint movement in the water by painting in one direction and lifting in the opposite direction. The lily pads are painted with more opaque pigments to bring them to the surface, appearing to float on the more transparent water.

Hughes Street, Cape May, New Jersey (Plein Air Painting)

8" x 10" watercolor canvas panel

This is a plein aire painting that was done in 105º hear. Fortunately I had a friend painting along side, and misery loves company. Our clothes were dripping wet and sticking to our bodies when we finished...and we were painting in the shade!

Hillbrook Stream

18' x 24" on watercolor canvas

This is the Hillbrook Stream that flows beside a private club and many homes in an affluent area of Chagrin Falls, OH. It is always a pleasure to drive beside this beautiful setting.

SOLD

The Hillbrook Club

9" x 12" on watercolor canvas

This private club was brought from England, brick by brick and placed in the hills of the Chagrin Falls, OH, area. From good food to an occasional game of tennis, a swim, or a wedding on one of the terraces, it is a memorable experience.

In the Midst of Winter
(original watercolor)

Image: 26" x 40"
collection of Michael Boysen

The winter of 2003 gave me much subject matter
to paint during the long winter hours. The scenes in our Chagrin River Valley are an artistic delight, though I take liberty with the landscape and design the paintings accordingly.

Autumn at Manakiki

Original Watercolor
22 x 30

SOLD


Woodland Path

Original Watercolor
22 x 30

 

This is a typical winter scene in the Emerald Necklace around Cleveland Ohio. Finding early spring plants peeping up through the snow is an invigorating activity......along with photographing the beautiful scenery for painting.

 

 


The Woods at Manakiki

Giclee Print: 21" x 28 5/8"
$650
Limited edition of 5....signed and numbered

This scene, along the edge of a popular golf course on the east side of Cleveland startled me as the late afternoon sun peered through the foliage. This is also a glazed painting, using a wet in wet technique for the background, then adding darker colors over the dried washes in a loose fashion to simulate the sparkle of the light and shadows. It is invigorating to me to create the illusion without going into photo-detail.

SOLD

unmatted Edition of 5

This scene jumped out at me as I drove home one evening. The long winter shadows added to the design as they crept across the landscape.


Music Street, The Back Drive

Image size: 22" x 30"
matted: 32" x 39"

collection of Michael Boysen

 


Woodland Light

Image size: 22" x 30"

The Emerald Necklace, a park system around Cleveland is full of scenes such as this, with streams, trees, rocks and picnic areas.

I love the way the light streams through the trees in late afternoon. All I can hear are the little waterbugs and the trickle of the water over the rocks.
