Oh, my! I knew it had been a while since my last post, but I didn't think it was that long! So much has been going on...I had a piece juried into the NAA Winter Show; I am now sharing a studio space with a terrific artist, Heather Karp; I am starting spring painting classes this Friday (info at left), we are having open studios at our new space (visit: ); and recently found out that the above piece I entered into the NAA Regional Show was juried in! If I missed anything, I'll let you know!

"Lil Bit O' Love"


5" x 5", Oil on Gessoboard

My family likes all kinds of 'junk' candy....sour patch, peach rings, skittles, and even these heart shaped Gobstoppers. Although I am more fond of chocolates, these were too pretty not to paint!

This is a painting I am currently working on (one of MANY). I always feel as if I should only post completed pieces, but today I decided that I will show some works in progress every once in a while. This piece is 16" x 20" and is in pastel on sanded paper. It's one of the paintings in my 'fog/mist' series I am working on....

Heather from my weekly painting group recently started a group blog for us where you can see some work from our weekly plein air outings, although most are hesitant to post their works in progress too! You can check it out at or you can click on the link on the left. From there you can visit the websites of everyone in our group. Have fun!

"Big Dog"

7" x 12", Oil on Mounted Linen

So much has been going on: the holidays, 9 (yes, NINE) days without electricity in an icestorm, art shows, etc...but I am still managing to get some painting done! I have been working on 2 series: landscapes with a mist/fog theme and figures in the landscape.

This week our plein air painting group met indoors - can't say I was too upset considering it was about 5 degrees outside! I used the time to paint this guy; it was good to take a break from the larger more serious pieces to paint something fun. Hope you like him!
