30 Paintings in 30 days!

I'm warming up in some pretty cold weather to paint every day in 2016. I've wanted to do this for a couple of years. Intentions are to become a better painter, form good art habits ... not to have 30 framed masterpieces. But wouldn't that be nice too? "Up the Road" 8x10 - Pastel on sanded paper.

My latest hand made wool mittens (made from 100% wool recycled sweaters, lined with fleece) for sale to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. Pin cushion cupcakes designed by Betz White and made by me, will send as a thank you for a donation to the Alzheimer's Association of Colorado! Thank you!

Palisade peaches are in!

I ended up with 2 cases of peaches this year - they are so very good but having 50 or so ripen within a few days takes creativity to use up. After painting these I made peach muffins, mmm.

The Narrows in Zion

Travels to Utah this spring provided lots of beautiful scenery to paint. We visited Canyonlands, Arches National Park, Zion and Bryce Canyon NP. Favorite places to paint were Dead Horse Point State Park and Zion NP. The Narrows have walls as high as 1,000 feet and the river is as narrow as 20-30 feet wide in places. Hiking in rushing water (the Virgin River) isn't my thing so I relied on Ed for this great photo to paint from.
