Charlie is a terrific musician, versatile in a variety of instruments and a great teacher. He is also our son-in-law and it is the greatest pleasure to be in the room with him and colleagues as they jam, playing wonderful music. This painting is actually not quite finished, as I... Continue reading

I had a wonderful time painting this picture while out with several friends along the James River. Unfortunately, one of the artists stepped in a nest of chiggers and sufferred greatly for a couple of weeks afterwards. It is a good idea to use a barrier mat of some kind... Continue reading

What a pleasure it is to walk down this street many times a week, and an even greater pleasure to sit and paint it on canvas right there. I do love Plein Air painting and do as much as time, energy and weather allow. Let me know the scene you... Continue reading

This is a dear sister-in-law whom I have known for well over 50 years. She is a great example of kindness and charity, always thinking of others rather than of herself. We need more people like her in the world. Suedanehyart@gmail.com Continue reading

Our Daughter, Patsy, is pictured in a rocking chair that had been a wedding gift to her great grandparents. She has been a potter so a reminder of that part of her life is shown in the background, along with a painting indicating that she is also talented in that... Continue reading

"Rosie" was a model at last year's Portrait Conference and was the first of the pencil drawings I did over the winter. I found it comfortable to draw in the evenings when there was less light available, with color removed from the equation. Suedanehyart@gmail.com Continue reading

It was a lovely day in Williamsburg, near my friend's house, and as luck would have it, a mama duck and her ducklings swam by as we were painting. What could be more fun than painting near water on a nice day, visiting with people walking by who wish they... Continue reading

This large stone is actually a composite , according to the seller. I can not tell the difference, but take his word for it as he is very knowledgeable. The texture on the "plate " is random but relates to the patterns of the texture of the stone. This is... Continue reading

These beautiful stones were rather similar in color and idea, but one was in horizontal position and one was vertical. My friend commissioned me to make these for his sweetheart, who likes large earrings, and would be up for having something a bit unusual. They turned out beautifully, and the... Continue reading

I really enjoyed using a variety of blue paints to create this image of the beautiful vases that were set up. Sometimes a color dominates a painting, and this one certainly does. If you have a favorite color you would like to see explored and exploited (!), please let me... Continue reading

At my monthly drawing class sometimes I have a good enough likeness to want to work on the drawing a little more at home. This is one of those cases. Sharon was an excellent model and I spent a little time later working on a few details. I had not... Continue reading

This portrait was done at the request of Shelly's husband and is now hung in their home. The colors and values displayed here are rather weak as the original is more intense; however you are able to get the idea of what I have done recently. Now that the New... Continue reading

Here is the back of the bracelet which is nearby on the blog with the lovely rhodonite stone. danehyms@verizon.net Continue reading

This sterling silver bracelet was designed for someone who wanted a stone to coordinate with some earrings she had purchased a while back. I had purchased this lovely rhodonite stone in Colorado last year and thought it would be just the right thing for the customer. To make sure the... Continue reading

This is a picture of one of the cases I keep at my gallery. I am one of 14 artists at the gallery and I have 4 cases of jewelry as well as freestanding forms on which I hang some necklaces. In this case you can see two necklaces with... Continue reading

We were fortunate to take a cruise through the Panama Canal, and our first stop after leaving San Diego was Cabo San Lucas.. I have always wanted to see this lovely arch that is its signature picture in ads. Not only could we see it very well early in the... Continue reading

Someone asked me recently to make some classic silver earrings with the posts in the middle for her uneven holes so I made several pairs. Usually I put the posts toward the top but one earring looks lowerer in the case of uneven holes. Symmetrical shapes with posts in the... Continue reading

Everyone loves to purchase pieces to remind them of trips they have taken. This is a stone purchased in China, I believe, and is wrapped in sterling and gold filled wire so it can be worn rather than just sitting in a drawer. If you have a treasure from one... Continue reading

I have been fortunate to obtain some beautiful aqua terra stones to wrap in square gold filled wire. There are lovely variations in this stone, with rusts and blues along with creamy squiggles. A sight to behold. Drop me a note at danehyms@verizon.net to purchase thisnice addition to your jewelry... Continue reading

These lovely jaspers in triangle shape needed something special to surround them, something that related to the lines in the stones themselves so I left a rim of sterling silver and pounded random lines on them. These are post earrings, hot off the press, and are now in the New... Continue reading

My granddaughter was sitting at the counter in a very relaxed manner when I took out my camera to snap a picture.. A couple years later it seemed like just the right image for me to paint so I was happy that the judge of the show saw some merit... Continue reading

This is for a man who does not like to wear a tie! A great solution is a bolo with an interesting stone surrounded by sterling silver and several gold balls. danehyms@verizon.net will get you in touch with Sue, who has had much enjoyment designing and executing bolos. Continue reading
