Well Loved

12 x 12 oil on gessoboard

The holiday season is upon us and it seems like everyday just gets more busy than the last.  I have been diligently working on my commission and have finished the first painting of two.  I have titled it "Well Loved."  it makes me smile that someone likes their Converse as much as I do.

Saturday December 3rd 11-3pm is The Art of the Gift at Elevation 486 in Twin Falls. I will have a table set up with my small daily paintings, cards, desk calendars and gift bags for sale so come on out and give or get some local art for Christmas.

This week is Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection week so I have been busy at church packing up the boxes that have come in.  The last day for collection is Monday November 21st from 8:30 to 10am at First Christian Praise Chapel in Rupert.  If you have packed boxes make sure to get them to me by then!

24 x 24 oil on 7/8" cotton canvas

I was challenged to take a small painting and transition it to a larger canvas. Once again I chose my favorite shoes, the red converse. I painted it during the election which inspired the red white and blue color scheme.

Not Much to Show

I really am painting most everyday but don't have a lot to show for it.  A few small paintings that are meh and being scrapped.  Most recently I have been framing, planning, going to meetings and fixing our wifi that keeps going out.  I just sent paintings to the Full Moon Gallery in Twin Falls so if you are down at Elevation 486, stop by and see them.  Also, some of my work will be out at the Twin Falls airport through December so if you are flying anywhere form Twin check it out.  The artists of the FMG have been asked to provide art for the Weathervane Home home show in March which means I need to come up with 10 large paintings by February 1.  As of today that is my focus along with a commission I received from Pennsylvania and cover art for the Wilson Theatre Gala - yea, I'm really busy! Thanks for all of your support, I will keep you all up to date as things progress.
