Camille’s room

While in Alberta I painted my niece Camille’s room then a mural based on her ideas, the bedding design, and colors. I love that creativity is portable!

Orange Milkweed

Orange Milkweed, Kentucky, USA

These ultra-vibrant milkweed flowers were blooming beside the highway in Kentucky, like fireworks in the ditches. Happy 4th! (1776 – 2007)

Maple leaves, Kingston, Ontario

…back after two weeks of driving from Texas to Ontario and back the long route this time through North Carolina just so we could see it, and thanks to the invention of the digital camera my daily image requirements remain satisfied! Maple trees are common almost everywhere between Texas and Canada, here are some branches in honor of Canada Day, held on July 1st. This shot was taken at Jones Falls Dam near Kingston, Ontario.
