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.

"Storm Lights" Landscape Sunset Daily Painting

I've been working on some larger pieces, which always take longer than a day. Plus I've been varnishing and framing pieces for an art and music festival in north Idaho this weekend. I'll be one of 30 regional artists showing work at this fun venue.

I did manage to paint this small study today, though. I hope you like it. Those rosy storm clouds and glowing water tower just had to be painted!

I sold paintings and I also bought a couple! It was fun discovering what all the artists who were there have been painting, seeing friends, and meeting new ones.
