This beautiful scene was captured in Upper Austria in the Salzkammergut region near Hallstatt in April 2014.

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.

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 […]

I photographed these delicate dried hydrangea blossoms on a sunny winter day in Central New York. Earth tones of beige, brown, tan, ivory, and gray are featured, and the ice crystals in the background create a beautiful bokeh effect. I enhanced the image with fine French script and layers of light textures.
Those of us who have braved a frigid Upstate New York winter are seeing the first signs of Spring. I am getting ahead of things, but there is nothing like the scent of fragrant lavender in the air on a summer day. This image is new to my shops!
Peonies are some of my favorite flowers with their velvet petals and lovely fragrance. This image has layers of light textures for vintage appeal and has a soft, dreamy glow.
The butterflies in this display are actually a pretty butter-yellow, but today I made them pink and added some vintage texture and faint script. How pretty they would be fluttering across a little girl’s bedroom wall or a baby girl’s nursery. A click on the image will bring you to my Fine Art America website.
