A Walk in the Park

I should be finishing up some Christmas stuff, but no, I would rather paint.

Here is another illustration for The Quiet Bear by Gretchen Leary.  Coming next year!
If you look really hard, you can see a little family walking on the bridge, and if you look even harder, there is a reflection in the water of a little girl peering over the bridge.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Something New

I'm busy working on a Christmas present for a cousin.  Our family has a name drawing at Thanksgiving and I got the name of one of my girl cousins.  I can't say who it is, but she likes pink! At least, I think she does.   Anyway, here is something new...in pink.

I think it will look nice when it's framed.

Here is one, sort of good photo I took of my Holiday Show at Sybaris in Albany OR.
I guess I need to go back and take some more photos.  But, you can kind of see how fun it looks.

If you live in or near Albany, I hope you can come by and take a peek.  The show will run through December, and all paintings are for sale!

and the Holiday Show goes Up !!!

For the past 4 years I have shown a holiday show at Sybaris restaurant in downtown Albany.  It's a really fancy pants restaurant.  Anyway, this is my 5th year, and maybe my best so far.  It turns out, that it's a pretty fun little art show (I guess it's not that little, I painted 60 paintings) and it decorates the restaurant for the season.  I also sell a lot, go figure?  So, here is a little peak into this years show.

All of these paintings are done in acrylic paint on canvas.
Hope you enjoy!
