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 Plein Air Paintings

Last week I did several pieces on location in the Palouse, even though the weather was somewhat grey. 

The challenge to make an interesting painting in various conditions is a good opportunity to learn something.

Not all the paintings I did are worth showing, or trying to save, but I tweaked these two small pieces a bit. A little more color and contrasts helped them work better.
