Easy Yummy Nut Cookies and Biscotti - A Theme and Variations
My friend Diane gave me a simple recipe for a Peanut Butter Cookie she had made for a gathering of friends. "Only 4 ingredients," she noted, and it makes for a delicious, easy dessert. After tasting one, I got her recipe. If you ever need a baking project w...

Life is but a bowl of cherries!
Not to be outdone by my strawberry harvest, my lone sour cherry tree is heavy with ripe fruit. The photo is this morning's harvest (minus those I ate while picking) and I've picked that much previously. The tree is a montmorency tart cherry. It's the only o...

No Garden This Year
I've witnessed some expressions of shock when I tell friends I am not planting a vegetable garden this year! The key word here is "vegetable" - I have plenty of gardens outside of the 20' x 40' plot we've dedicated to annual veggies for several years. In fa...

A fine artist, nature lover, gourmet healthy cook, organic gardener, banjo and beginner fiddle player
Introduction
Art has been a part of my life longer than I can remember; since early childhood I have loved to draw and paint. Today I am grateful for the opportunity to indulge in my passion for painting. I love capturing everyday subjects such as beloved pets, wildflowers, rural scenes, fishing boats, and landscapes, as well as depicting the exotic, such as frolicking dolphins and African wildlife. I paint in a highly realistic manner with intense detail which has won me many awards. Be sure to visit my web gallery.

My passion is painting, but my list of interests and hobbies is a very long one. Other interests include other arts and crafts, healthy gourmet cooking from scratch (see my food and gardening blog), organic gardening, perennial flower & herb gardens, seed saving, sharing plants, preserving the fruits (and berries) of my labors, identifying wildflowers (my property is a paradise), playing banjo, playing fiddle (a new pursuit!), mothering my pets, knitting, tatting, walking the woodland trails where I live, meeting new people, keeping in touch with long-time friends, and enjoying a busy social life.

Most of all, I love spending lots of time with my lifelong best friend, my husband Rick.
