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.

Two Recent Sunset Paintings

Here are a couple of new little dailies: good warm-ups for bigger projects.

The sunsets are always intriguing for me and I continue to try capturing that final glow in the sky. 

It's a challenge that presents itself time and again, daring me to give it a shot. The snowy scene and the lake scene both had similar colors and that scarlet glow, but were each unique, as every sunset is.
