Close Ups

Here are some more direct photos of the 2 plates I painted for the Salt Lake City Art Access 300 plates Show.  I sure enjoyed painting them.  These two types of flowers symbolize the lives of two perfect little souls who left this world too soon.  I painted them because my heart felt the need to reach out toward a friend.  What is your favorite flower and why?

2014 300 plates show

Hi readers! Check these out...I had fun painting them and I especially like the way the poppies turned out.  They look like ordinary flowers to most people but isn't there always more than meets the eye?  :) These two little beauties are on exhibit at the Art Access 300 plates show in SLC. Its a crazy-fun show to be a part of. Thanks for all your support! more info on this site:

Fresh Off the Easel

available through the artist
framed $100

For you local readers, how did you like that crazy blizzard midday today?  After a storm like that I am always grateful for when the sun comes out and I finished this piece right as it did.  I couldn't help but notice the clouds outside a bit more today because I had been painting this.  What a glorious sky! Happy February to you, wherever you may be.

Plein Air--From the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains

If you are familiar with this area you know that we are having exceptionally beautiful Fall weather right now.  With the threat of winter right around the corner I am feeling a rush to get outside and PAINT! 
This is one of my very good friends joining me....and getting a bit of a sunburn.  We later added umbrellas and a hat for shade (thanks to a nice gentleman in a golf cart and later a sweet husband on a bike).  

Here is my finished piece, 10x12" painted in 3 hours (photo taken with an iphone...). It is titled "From the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains" and is available through the unframed for $290.

*In case you are curious, here is a bit of trivia: "Plein Air" means painting in the open air and was the defining style of French Impressionism.

Also, stay tuned for some images of my newest series...three paintings of the Ten Virgins.  I will be posting part of my process along with the finished works.
