Happy Holidays everyone. Thanks for all the kind words this past year!

My Christmas Present

Here I am with the wonderful Christmas present my husband and son got me this year. It is a painting by Carol Marine called Red Light District. I absolutely love it. Thanks Noel, thanks Evan.

What Did You Say - It's Windy - SOLD

Another beach scene. I may revisit this one in a larger format, I think I could push it further.

You Don't Say

The reference for the painting is a photo I took this summer of my Dad and Uncle standing in Lake Huron. I took quite a few photos at the beach that I have been wanting to get at for some time. Why now during the winter you ask; I believe I am procrastinating from stretching canvas on the 9 large stretchers that are leaning against the wall in my studio. These stretchers are for a series of large landscapes I have planned, I guess rather than procrastinating I should say I am percolating my thoughts for these pieces.

DSDF Portrait Challenge

This is my submission for the DSDF Portrait Challenge. I really tried to concentrate on the eyes in this painting and figuring out the structure of this fellow's face.

Blue Ornaments

There is a touch of snow on the ground here, but it still does not seem like Christmas yet so I thought I would try and get in the mood.

Stripes and Limes

I am finally finished. I set up this still life wanting to challenge myself and I did. This took me about 2 weeks to finish - between painting, contemplating and experimenting. My husband feels it is too busy for him, I shall see what he thinks now that it is finished.
