Cottonwood Trees in Nevada Sunshine

Cottonwoods in Nevada, oil on canvas 24" x 30"
This Nevada landscape captures the cottonwood trees which turn to brilliant yellow at the first onset of cold. The mountain desert is spotted with color in the Fall at the eastern base of the Sierra Nevada Range in the Carson Valley. We'll be up there for the holidays and I hope to find more inspirational views. This trip will likely produce snowscapes!

Koru Cottage Vacation Rental in New Zealand

Koru Cottage
Imagine a riverside house nestled in native bush on the Coromandel Peninsula, with a
vibrant artist community. Go fishing, hiking, kayaking, bird watching.
Dine on New Zealand fare, fresh from the ocean or homegrown local produce.

This lovely house is available to rent overnight or long-term.

Working on the Koru Cottage website has inspired dreams of learning about Maori art, enjoying music festivals, and hiking on the Coromandel Peninsula.

Designed by Margot Duane and Philip Chudy, in collaboration with Jenefer Duane and Ron Spinhoven. The site is coded in XHTML with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and we worked hard to ensure elegant, consistent cross-platform and cross-browser viewing.
