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.

End of Day Plein Air

The Pack River Flats of Lake Pend d'Oreille is one of my favorite spots for plein air painting. This little study is one I did about a month ago but felt it needed a few touch ups before it was ready for prime time. I think I'm done now.

Thanks so much, David. It's nice to hear from you and I enjoyed looking at what you've been capturing lately, too.

I like the complexity of layers here, with the super zigzag pattern.

Thanks, Mary. I liked that too! This place is always a challenge to capture, but so interesting.
