It’s been a while…

So Christmas came and went and I found myself wrapped up in all the usual activities and enjoying my family immensely!  I did create and print a bunch of linocut cards…was only going to do a couple and then the project just grew.  And grew.  Sold enough to make it worthwhile, and frankly, I just love printing!  I majored in printmaking when I was in college (minored in painting) but now I think of myself as a painter and not the other.

Finally got back into the studio for painting and have posted the results today.  Both of these are mixed media as I am exploring combining oil pastels and tissue paper with oils on canvas.  Don’t know what the deal is with so many trees but will think about that.

The trees in field painting MAY not be finished, but it’s close and then I’ll add my little signature.  A former co-worker and fellow artist is now retired and can be counted on to take photos of sunsets and sunrises (it’s so difficult for me to do that on the way to work while driving up I-95!).  She posted a photo in December that I fell in love with and she’s been gracious enough to let me use it.
