Summer is GONE!!!

Wow, I woke up this morning and it was 46 degrees outside. It’s pretty early for this chilly weather!

We were fortunate to take a tour of 9 National Parks this summer. The words wondrous, awesome, beautiful, incredible don’t even begin to describe the vistas that we saw – Everyday for 14 days. Needless to say, what a BLAST. I have TONS of painting material and have been busy trying to develop some of it. The first set of picture are attempts to capture Monument Valley. They are all works in progress, but I have been diligent about adding a layer every day (it’s that glazing thing).

The next set of pictures is my new passion – Linocuts. I love doing them. Especially the birds. Need lots of practice, but its a skill I WANT to get better at.

Let me know if you have any comments! I would be glad to hear from you!



It has been a long time, but spring is here and I am feeling the urge to paint! I did do some Franken-Art this winter. I had a great time craving into craft foam, slathering on some acrylic paint and pressing it onto Bristol paper (or pastel paper, or WC paper). Here are just a few of my efforts!

These were “small” 5×7 and I used this prints to make cards for various occasions. But then, I got BRAVE and decided to do a 11 x 14. So I sketched my sketch, and “drew” on my craft foam and made a number of different prints. The first was on sketch paper, another on Bristol paper, the next ones were on paper that I had already printed some type of background on.

I am not sure if any of these prints are “done”, the experiments are just beginning. Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear from you! Happy Spring!
