Two pastel yellow and terra cotta – colored buildings with hunter green shutters blend into one in Venice, Italy.
As lake effect snow piled up outside yesterday – the day before New Year’s Eve – I enjoyed editing this sunny, colorful image. This beautiful field of vibrant golden yellow sunflowers is in Central New York state, outside of Syracuse. A click on the image will take you to my Fine Art America page.
This beautiful scene was captured in Upper Austria in the Salzkammergut region near Hallstatt in April 2014. In the foreground, green trees stand tall along the steep incline of the mountains, while snow-capped mountains of higher elevation and a blue sky with white clouds complete the scene.

We took a wonderful trip to Canada in late August to Montreal and Quebec City. A walk down by the St. Lawrence in Montreal yielded this dramatic sight where the morning sun casted dramatic shadows of a metal staircase running up the side of an industrial building. Just this week I began to set up a gallery on Saatchi Art, which is where a click on my image will take you.
A red panda sleeps with her head and one paw hanging out of her zoo enclosure. The red panda is also known as the lesser panda, the red bear-cat, or the red cat-bear. Its native habitat is in the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. A click on the image will take you to my Fine Art America site.
On a sun-dappled, grassy lawn canopied by trees, two Adirondack – style chairs await tired visitors in the Montreal Botanical Garden – Jardin Botanique de Montréal. There is a light, gauzy glow to the image. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery – is prominent here.
We had a fantastic trip to Montreal, enjoying not only the botanical gardens, but also a bit of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, as well as the France vs. Germany soccer match during the Women’s World Cup which ended with an exciting penalty shootout.

I took a hike with my family at Highland Forest, part of the Onondaga County Park System in Central New York State. We go there often and while it is lovely in every season, I prefer the scenery in autumn when the foliage is colorful and vibrant. Here, a mottled but bright red sugar maple ( latin: Acer saccharum ) leaf contrasts against brown logs and green moss, ferns, and other plants.

While traveling in Venice can feel as though one is in a living museum, there are scenes such as this where one is reminded that people actually live here! The original color of this building was drab, so I took some liberties and made it a raspberry – pink with a soft glow. Clean laundry flutters in the Spring breeze. Forest green shutters flank the windows. Clicking on the image will bring you to my Fine Art America page.
