Women's Outdoor Wire

Today was the first installment of a new monthly column to be published in the Women's Outdoor Wire newsletter. The article was introductory and touched on the importance of observation and about painting what moves you. This is an exciting opportunity and future articles will touch on painting tips, inspiration behind certain paintings and really anything that has to do with wildlife art. Here is a link to the website for more information - click here.

Local Show

I have a show coming up at the Elsinore Gallery in downtown Salem, Oregon that will run through the month of November. The show will focus on my daily paintings, which are affordable miniature original paintings in the 4"x4" to 5"x7" range. There will be a reception from 3-5pm on Saturday, Nov. 1st. The exhibition will also feature a couple of larger originals as well as a selection of limited edition prints. The purpose of the show, however, is to showcase these unique originals. Below are some examples and if you would like to see more of my daily paintings, there is a special blog dedicated to them at this link - Daily Paintings Blog. There is also a subscription link on the blog where you can receive a new painting each time one is posted.

Back from Minnesota

I just came back from Wild Wings' Fall Festibal in Minnesota and had a great time! One thing that is really enjoyable about the show is hanging out with the other artists. Many topics come up and it is great to be able see everybody. Below is the group that stayed over an extra night.
