Talkin’ Baseball is a reverse painting on glass that depicts an 18 month old country boy and his Papa discussing strategies and statistics concerning the major leagues
The first time we took Wyatt to the town park where we live, it was truly an experience for all three of us. He seems to be drawn in more by men than women, so I have to work hard to gain his favor. However, I do love to see him and his Papa at play and talkin’ baseball.
The second time our country boy took us to the park! When it came to the baseball field, Papa found an old used up, skinless baseball, and there was no stopping us! We threw the ball, we ran after it, we watched it roll to us, and the best part? We ran the bases! I must admit, Nana was a bit exhausted, and Papa slept like a log that night. But as reported by my daughter, Wyatt woke up the following morning saying “Papa, Nana, base-ball?”
I can’t even begin to say how good that made both of us feel. My husband was unsure about taking him there a second time. He thought it might be boring for Wyatt. But at this point, I think it might become one of Wyatt’s favorite places!
This country boy in the clover is an example of my reverse painting on glass, However, I painted it on plexi- glass.
One day when our grandson, Wyatt came over to visit, my husband, Rich and I decided to take him to the park in town. I had wanted to show Rich a trail there that intersected a trial I used to ride horse back on as a teen ager. And what a beautiful day it was to take Wyatt. Along the way, I picked up a tiny toad to show it to Wyatt. I put it back, and we went a ways before Wyatt pointed out another tiny toad.
He then claimed a pine cone from the trail as his own. Rich called it the souvenir we had bought him. We rode on the slides, swung on the swings, climbed on the climbing things, and had a wonderful day in all. It made for some great photographs to paint with later on, so I still got to see and enjoy our grandson, while painting, even while waiting to play with him again the following weekend.

Some country boys were born to be a Tractor man
They are always around the machinery, working with it, using it or doing repairs. Whether it be planting or harvesting, a tractor man can be seen with a big machine. The model for this painting is none other than my grandson, Wyatt. He is a little hay seed, and loves to find out how things work! He even looks under his bouncy house looking for the reason it blows up. When the child’s car he has wont work, he gets off and immediately opens the hood to get to the battery. If something doesn’t make sense, he looks for the reason behind it.

‘Little Hayseed’ is a reverse painting on glass of my grand-son, Wyatt.. Maybe he isn’t really a little hayseed, but he does look like one in this reverse painting on glass, and he is a bit of a country boy, which is alright with his grandma!
It was a little hard not to laugh yesterday when I went over on a surprise visit. When Wyatt saw me, he started yelling :Nana, Nana!, only to run right past my out-stretched arms to my car. He was looking for his Papa. But on the other hand, he was very happy to see our Border Collie, Toby, and get a kiss from him! He has let me know repeatedly though, that I am very useful to him in the kitchen when I make “Mmmmm” for meals, and especially likes deserts! I am also the one who gets to fix problems when there are stinkers in the diaper. Lucky Nana. I have tried to remedy this affliction, bus to no avail so far.
This Country Boy is all boy. This reverse painting on plexi-glass depicts my grand-son Wyatt. He prefers his Papa over Nana, and at home he is always helping his Dada work in the garage or around the lawn. He has friends who are female, and even kisses them now and then! He will be a heart breaker!
He is shown by his father, a country boy grown up, how to do things for himself and help others when he can, and for this, I am grateful. He dearly loves to help out in the garden with his mother, carrying the produce as far as needed to get it where it’s needed. He even brings fresh vegetables to his Nana when he comes to visit! I do love that Wyatt is growing up in a rural environment, and that for now he is a Country Boy.
At first, I was afraid to try to paint people, but seem to have overcome that fear by painting children. To see more of my work in reverse painting on glass of people in paintings, such as ‘Country Boy’, please go to

Fire Cracker is without a doubt an American horse, even though she may be one of a different color. I actually finished this reverse painting on glass in time for the fourth of July, but with the unusually rainy seasonal paintings we had in central New York, there weren’t many good days to photograph her. In fact, it’s raining again today. Alas, she did not make it to the fireworks show. Though I have done several
there was no series of paintings in progress when I painted fire cracker, it was just a whim that struck me while I was having a metaphorical case of writers block. Yes, people who paint can get that too. Fire Cracker unblocked it for me.
Even though is has been many years since I’ve had horses of my own, the beauty of these animals is impossible to miss, and don’t we all like to feast our eyes? So if I paint one now and then, it’s just me remembering what magnificent creatures horses are, and yes, there are a few who could be classified under the ‘fire cracker’ category.

Rain on Pine Bough is the last reverse painting on glass in the Spring Rain series. The colors of the reflections seen on the surface tension of the raindrops are from natural fauna in the area. With the wetness all around, the raindrop reflections are also everywhere. Yesterday I was in the woods with friends, when I noticed that there are times when one can’t focus on everything at one time, and certain areas of the vision just become color until the focus of what is being viewed is altered. I found this to be odd because the light pinks and purples I had seen became the prettiest flowers! I don’t know what kind of flowers, but the were beautiful. We had originally met there for a group picnic, but the response of attendance was exceptional, and there was more good food than could be eaten. The good company took time to enjoy as well. As a group, we toured the park at Pixley Falls. Executed on plexi-glass, this painting measures 11″ x 14″ inside the frame.
