Happy Holidays!

"A Path For A Poet"
Oil On Linen 11x14

This is a piece I did for a friend who, you guessed it, is a Poet! He and his friend go on a 50 mile hike each summer along the North Shore in Northern Minnesota. It was important to him to have this painting done as a surprise for his hiking pal as a gift. It was fun to play with all the textures in the grasses and the depth of the darks.
Happy Holidays!
Well, the last time I checked in was November. Time does fly! December always seems to just zip by with all the holiday excitement. It's such a magical time with kids!
It's been a busy month in the studio finishing up classes for the semester and finishing a couple studio pieces I've been working on for a while now. I love this time of year for fresh starts and new goals ahead for my painting! January is now one of my favorite months. I seem to get quite a bit of painting done and am REALLY looking forward to it!
