Early Snow

Our February snow reminded me of the last snow in November...the leaves were late falling and I came upon this pretty scene just down the road.  I took a snap and have painted an acrylic 3.5 x 5" miniature.  I love that there is so much beauty just around the corner from my home...it is all about seeing it.  I will be entering it in the Miniatures show at Gallery North in Edmonds in March.

Loving Memories

How we love our pets!  Grammy and her cat... sadly, I don't know the kitty's name, but she looks just like my own little Daisy.  This was painted from an old black and white photo, is in acrylic and is 3.5" x 5".  It is available at the Whidbey Art Gallery in Langley, Washington.

We love the heat of summer and paradoxically, the cool, refreshing shade of large trees.  I painted this in Winthrop in Eastern Washington State.  The trees and hayfields were large --from one edge of my field of view to the other in all directions, but captured in a 4" x 6" acrylic miniature.  This little treasure was SOLD at the Whidbey Art Gallery in Langley, Washington
