Flowers for Lynne

Flowers for Lynne
6x8 oil

This is long overdue and  I admit I've been taking a bit of a break. I participated in a show and a studio tour a couple weeks ago and other than wrapping up a couple commissions I haven't been painting much. The tour went really well but the best part was hearing from my new collector how happy she was that she stopped and how proud she was to have the painting hanging in her home.

I love her.

Mostly just taking it easy, with a little fun thrown in and catching up on all my lost sleep. But I'm starting to feel the itch to paint again (always!) and hoping to get some other projects and ideas in the works.

This is a little painting of the flowers from my daughter's wedding last year. For her mother-in-law.

Today will see the northern migration of thousands of determined Minnesota anglers in search of the elusive walleye... It's the Minnesota Fishing Opener, one the most beloved events in MN. The local news has just informed us that the Governer will be on the water at 7 AM and will be using a jig and minnow. I wonder if they Tweeted that? I should go paint a fish.

Go Walleyes!
