My beloved collie, Rudy. I took extra care drawing him with wax-based colored pencils on mat board. We have many fun memories with Rudy !

Last Spring, I saved a baby tree swallow after his birdhouse was attacked. I took "Pipsqueak" to a rehab center in Vermont. Pipsqueak adopted a baby Blue Jay (Gupper) as his mother. Who could resist drawing this adorable couple ??

Here is my latest interest; colored pencil drawings of backyard birds. I have completed four and plan to continue. For bird lovers, visit the Birds of Vermont Museum. It is a picturesque museum featuring hundreds of carved birds by the curator Bob Spear (now 90 years old and still carving).

I just sketched this from a photo I took at the NY Museum of Natural History Butterfly show over 8 years ago. I still remember the fabulous contrast of colors as the butterflies landed on slices of oranges everywhere.

I love to use my art to remember my children when they were younger. This is my 9-year old spending her first birthday at the beach. I painted this on the plane last week using watercolor pencils.
