Sunset Through the Leaves

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSunset Through the Leaves

When the setting sun hits my garden wall just right, the leaves all light up from behind just like organic jewels.

This view is right outside of my office, so I get to see it every single afternoon as I sit here and work!

Lucky me!

The original is SOLD! Thank you!

When you get these original paintings, you help me support the cleanup of the nasty plastic drinking water bottle trash we’ve created on the planet.

Because out of each piece I sell, I donate to an organization that helps research the problem and how to best approach it and where, or do the actual cleanup needed.


You can get a mousey-pad of it here:

And since you missed getting the original, I invite you to get a print (on paper or canvas) starting at $104:


Painting #25: Rosey Lover

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Painting #25: TITLE: Rosey Lover. Someone sent me an image of this rose…only it was lavender. I decided that rose, magenta and reds were better suited to this beautiful spirally shape. Roses always remind me of lovers.

Today I had such a nice surprise. I was talking with the help guy at Message Broadcaster ( at ) – he saw what I was doing and said he’d sponsor the 100-days 100-paintings with 100 days of messages! My first Official Sponsor! Very cool. Thank you!

And if you miss getting the original, get a giclee print (a giclee is a high-quality print on canvas – so good you almost can’t tell the difference between it and the original) here

Looking for great gifts? I invite you to get a gorgeous, gem colored mousey-pad of it here:


Painting #22: Prickly Friends

Artists for A Pristine PlanetToday as I was out in my front garden looking at the variety of cacti we have there, I was thinking how absolutely precious water is.

When I lived in New Mexico, I remember how one rain could make the golden desert turn into a fariyland of gem-greend speckled with little desert flowers.

Water is precious, indeed.

Want the original of this one?

Here’s how you get your original of Prickly Friends: Email me at Lyon at with APP Prickly Friends in the subject line to get this one.

You can get a gorgeous, gem colored  mousey-pad of it! Cactus lovers! Celebrate cacti!:

And if you miss getting the original, get a giclée print (a giclée is a high-quality print on canvas – so good you almost can’t tell the difference between it and the original) here


Painting #19: Out My Door

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Painting #18: TITLE: Out My Door. This is what I see when I look out my door from my office. I keep the door open at all times so I can see my tiny little lanai – the sun is too intense there to sit for any length of time, so I filled it up with my little green friends.

Maybe you’ll recognize the birds-nest fern leaf on the left, the star-shaped sweet potato leaves and the lovely coral-red hibiscus.  I really love the contrast between the coral of the hibiscus and the gem-green of the leaves. And those little pinkish-lavender spots at impatiens and begonias peeking through here and there in the shadows.

Someone asked me the other day if I had painted all the images you see here. Yep, I did.

Get a mousey-pad of it here: Out-My-Door-MP, and get high quality prints in different sizes (starting at $104) here Out-My-Door-Prints. The image you see here is a darker than the actual painting.


Painting #15 & 16! Rosey Lips

Artists for A Pristine Planet

SOLD. Rosey Lips. Are they really that colorful? Yep, they really do look like that! (Go to google images and see: flapjack succulents, or Kalanchoe Luciae.) There are some I saw there that have deep, lipstick-red lips! Amazing, and so lovely to be able to go out and see in my garden every day. This original painting was done in acrylics on 9″ x 12″ canvas.
