Something New From The Easel

This may be finished. I need to step back from it a bit to know for sure.

December Snow

Backyard Bundt Cake Party, anyone?

Winter Chill

The tv stations are calling it the "Arctic Blast." It's pretty darn cold and although it was beautiful and clear today, tonight and tomorrow warns of frigid temperatures and the possibility of more snow. It's a great time for reading, playing games, and sipping a lovely port to warm the insides. In the event of another snow day, I look forward to the opportunity to be in the studio.

Sad News

Unfortunately, sad news also travels quickly. I am sad to learn of the death of Terry Toedtemeier in Hood River last night. He was a fine and warm man, a valuable part of the community, and a wonderful artist. My thoughts go out to friends and family.

Good News Travels Fast

I am happy to hear from Larry Elder from the Elder Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina, that 2 of my large paintings have been purchased by a local corporation. What a nice Christmas present! Nothing like sales to spur me on to getting to work in the studio. The work has been going well recently, so no external push was really needed, but I am nevertheless gratified when my work strikes a chord.
