Some Favorite Things.

Some Favorite Things
8"x6" oil on Canvas Panel  SOLD

Artist Note
I just enjoyed a wonderful 
few hours in the studio.

I gathered a favorite porcelain vase
to go with some beautiful flowers
I was given over Christmas plus
a table runner that was my mothers,
and blissfully went into 
a zen zone.

Christmas was very, very special 
as I hope yours was too.

This will be the last post of the year.
Once again I thank you all for
following my blog.
Also for the friendship as well as
the encouragement I feel
you give me. 


I get so much pleasure out of 
visiting your blogs 
and being inspired, 
 not only with the images 
but also the words you write.
Thank you.

May 2018 be one of good health
and personal happiness for you all.

Bosque Del Apache, NM. Sunrise

Bosque Sunrise 
8"x 8" oil on canvas panel $200.
Purchase HERE

Artist Note
I finally had time to paint this 
amazing sunrise view
from my visit to the Bosque in the Fall.
(If you look carefully at this
on the early morning of the 25th 
you will see the Santa's sleigh 
going across the light!!)

I held my annual December 
Fracturing Technique Workshop
and it was a pure delight for me
 due to a very compatible  
and also
 a talented group of artists 
who were willing to push themselves
into new territory.
Thank you all for honoring me 
with your painting trust.

Now it is MY time to paint 
before the new classes start in January.
 I have a Do Not Disturb sign on
my studio door.
 My friends are honoring it!

We have been blessed with 
not selling the house yet 
and so my kids & families 
are coming in for one last 
holiday blast in the home we all love.

Wishing every one of you who 
follow this blog, a wonderful
Christmastime of Love, Peace, and Hope.

May our fine military forces,
the first responders everywhere
and  especially the amazing firefighters 
in California
get to be home or at least be able to 
skype/facetime their loved ones
for the holidays.

I will be back before 
the New Year.
