Chicago in the Summer


It is hard to imagine Chicago in the summer when it is snowing outside right now. Here is another painting in my little mini series.

At the Riverside


Here is number 3 in this little series. These paintings are 8 x 10 and they take as long as a big one to paint.
Today is a sad day. One of my students/dear friend passed away today. She was about 2 years older than me. I still can't believe it. She will be deeply missed. I think I will do a painting of her.

Crossing over the Bridge


Thought I would work on another painting today. It is so good to be able to put Christmas aside and get back into the studio. Time to get some of those cookies. On to the next one for tomorrow...

Where have I been???



This is a VERY busy time of year for me. I am just finishing up writing my Christmas cards. This is the design for this year's card. Blessings for the New Year to ALL!!
It has taken me 2 weeks to decorate the house. I have trees in every room. The living room tree is the biggest (27 strands of 100 light bulbs, over 350 ornaments, plus garland). Then I had two new Winter shows to hang at the same time. Way to much at one time. But most of that is done so now I can enjoy the holidays a bit and begin baking. Any requests??
