Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

This small long painting is one of my favorite little studies of the area in north Idaho, the Pack River Flats, off Lake Pend Oreille, near Sandpoint.

Thank you, David and David. I'm so glad I'm remembering how to paint after traveling so much this summer!
