Sold, "GLOW" - one of my favorite paintings, to a collector in Pennsylvania.  This painting was done using a palette knife - I wanted so many times to pick up a brush - but I didn't.  Happy it has a new home.

Sold, "Nocturne" to a 13 year old who wanted it for her birthday present.  Her Mom was amazing and appreciated her daughter's taste in art.  Love having a young collector.

Snoqualamie last weekend - last time I painted this view George was with me - off with his camera while I played with my brushes.  This view and place is special to me.

Been painting roses in the garden before they lose all their petals.  Fall will be here soon.

Just off the easel - "Sunrise over Vashon Island."  24" x 30" Oil.  This is the first painting I have done in 11 months.  It felt good to get the paints out again and George really did help paint this one.  We have had a lot of smokey air in the NW the last few weeks - all the colors - sunrise, sunset, moon, are much more intense than normal.

Just sold - "Winter Pansies."  I have always loved this one - the plate with the fish was very difficult to paint - glad it has a new home.

I have sold several paintings at Gallery Row in Gig Harbor, WA during the last few months - inventory getting low. Maybe time to get out the brushes.  Selling Mom's Tulips was bittersweet. George took the reference photo when we visited La Conner on my Mom's 91st birthday.  It took me several years to get around to painting it.

"Big Yellow"

"Montana Spring" used "Road Home" as a study for this larger painting.

"Mom's Tulips" 

"The Wave"

As some of you know, I lost my dear husband very suddenly a few months ago.  Life will never be the same and neither will my paint brushes.  I have had trouble picking them up - not something he would be happy about.
