Your work is beautiful! My favorites are Aspen Forest and the bird with the holly, but then there is the snowman... at first I didn't care for it but it's so cheery I can't help but smile when I look at it.

Still haven't figured out what to paint my other little sister. She's so damn practical.

I enjoy your paintings so much! Soft...but with strength. (Sounds like a toilet paper commercial, but you understand what I mean.) Love them!

I do believe you just answered your own question. What is the most pratical item she owns? No matter what you paint, I'm sure it will be wonderful

Holy Cow! Those are just amazing! I love them all! How long does it take to paint one? How long to paint the Aspen? Do you have showings or a studio? Have I asked enough questions???

Thanks for the kind words

Time depends on the painting. A feather might take me around an hour. The aspens took me about 8-9 hours. We're opening a shop/studio downtown (my husband owns a glass shop, I own a photography studio). I'll be painting up there. He totally wants me to put up "gallery" too but seriously there's just not enough room. I'll probably display some pieces there just because I love it.

Our local museum education director is really hot to get me into the museum. I'll be working this winter (my off season) to paint 25 pieces just to show the museum in HOPES of getting a show in 2 years. (at that point I'll be expected to have around 100 pieces) This is a huge lifetime goal of mine. I swear I'll probably faint over dead if it happens. LOL.
My theme is "rural america" and I want to put some emphasis on local heritage as I think that'd be very interesting and more likely to get a show. Plus all show pieces are for sale, so I think it would increase my sales.

I'm thinking of approaching the museum and seeing if they'd like some of my prints in their gift shop. Apparently it does well, they expanded it recently.

I just *LOVE* all of your work!!! You do amazing stuff.

I have to admit that the snowman/cardinal one is my favorite, but that is because those two things bring back some great childhood memories of people who are now gone.

Wow. You do great work!! I really like the heart in the rocks. If you do an on-line shop please share with us I would love to buy some note cards with the love-rock one.

I have an oil painting a friend did and I went and had it framed and it's all fancy shmancy, I just love original art work.

Just Beautiful!!

I love the Botanical prints.

I think some people like the idea of being able to buy a little bit from several artists instead of spending their entire budget on one piece, kwim?

Plus, smaller items are good for gifts.
