Safflowers of Hope


A few years back there was a safflower field just south of Hope on State road 9. It was always lit up when the sun was setting. I thought of it as a sign of Hope.

First to Bloom


My family and I were in Georgia visiting my family and we went to the Nilo Plantation to visit my cousin Pat and her husband Kenny. We were at the old cabin by the pond. There on the water, near the edge, was a lump with a small white spot. I took a stick and lifted the moss off the lump and when I did this White Lily unfurled in front of us. It was just awesome and will be a sight I will always remember.  

Evening Glow


One of the most photographed skies in the Hope Indiana area ever recorded. I painted this the next day. This painting was donated to the Hope PTO for the fun fair silent auction. Thanks to my daughter Jacquie Carman for her inspiration.
