Long Time, No Post!

Opabin's Glory, oil on canvas, 20 x 24"

It has been a long time since I last posted. This is due to the hectic nature of Christmas along with my solo show, which frankly kind of left me kind of drained. It was a good show, very well received and 9 paintings sold, which is my best show yet. (I actually sold 11 but 2 were bought as Christmas gifts and the wife didn't like them -no accounting for taste!!) I did do a commission painting, posted above which is a larger version of the Opabin's Glory sketch I made at Lake O'Hara this fall.
Other than that I have been being creative by knitting and making jewelery. Sometimes I just need a different outlet for my creativity! I have this week to paint before I return to teaching, so hopefully some good painting will actually come out of that.
I wish you all the best of a new year of wonder and light!

Sharon, I LOVE this painting. Those yellow trees and reflections are yummy!

Breath taking! You have captured not only the color, but a feeling of peace and tranquility. Absolutely lovely.
