Bothin Marsh, visible from my studio, changes color with both the seasons and time of day. Here I created most of the artwork with a palette knife and sponge, using a brush for only the water.

This artwork was begun as I drove through the Napa Valley and spotted some grapevines which I felt compelled to stop and photograph.

I like the way the orderliness of the rows and stakes that are part of vine cultivation contrast with the wild irregularities of the vines themselves--the way the leaves grow in all directions and shooters poke out from above the vast sea of green.

A friend of my husband's photographed this scene.  I enjoyed playing with the color temperature of the snow on the hillside and barn roofs.

Less than a block from my home, I spotted an egret perched on the metal rack on a work truck with the marsh and bay as a backdrop. I pulled over to photograph him, and he let me get close without flying away.
