Still Waters

available for sale 8x10 oil $175 framed

I am definately going back to paint this peaceful oasis. I listened to birds and relaxed so completely I added 10 years to my life this day. This painting is for sale at the Driftless cafe until the end of June.

Showing at the Fair

available for sale 11x14 oil $150 unframed $225 framed
My ex-husband Terry is a great photographer. He has captured hundreds of glimpses of people living their lives. This painting was done from one of my favorite photos in my stash. I think I will enter this one in my local fair. It was taken there close to ten years ago.

Midsummer Pond

available for sale watercolor 12x12
This painting started out as poured paint on watercolor paper. I knew it would become a landscape, but wanted to let the painting happen on its own to a degree. Once I can see areas forming, I can develop them more. This technique is very good when you need to loosen up, and reconnect with your intuition.

Pastel tree

sold pastel 8x8
When I drove up to the painting site yesterday, I was amazed how many painters were there and already set up. We really had a great turnout. I had a nice time visiting though I came home empty handed. I found another older tree portrait in my files to post.

for sale watercolor 6x10
I was doing a lot of tree portraits a few years ago, this is the only one I have left. I think it is time I start a new tree series. This time in oil.

"Red Hat" - Grace Anders

Available for sale 9x12 oil on canvas
Grace was a recent portrait model. I made her look slightly older than she really is - she didn't seem to mind.

9x12 oil on panel
My first venture outside this spring. This little waterfall was so inviting, three of us set up and painted the same scene. I am going to take a new photo, it is not quite right.
