I'm finding it very hard to believe that 2020 is nearly over. I wish I could say I was glad, but really I feel like we have a long road ahead of us still with COVID-19. Oh, I think we'll recover and life will go back to the way it was (more or less, because … Continue reading Space 2020-6
In my last post, I told you all about ACEO's and my little miniature artworks. Today, I won't keep your attention for quite so long and I'll just let you get to where you want to be: looking at the artwork. This is one of my early space ACEO's: Ice Castle 2.5" x 3.5" acrylic … Continue reading Painting Week #2
I'm declaring this a painting week for my blog. You'll still get your free fiction on Friday, but the first two posts of the week I'd like to be for a couple of my recent ACEO paintings.

I noticed the leaves on the trees starting to change color in the middle of August. Some people told me I was crazy, even as I was pointing to the yellow leaves on the trees. Per our calendar, we have made the transition to fall, yet some areas of Idaho are going to get snow … Continue reading Winter in the air?
When I'm painting, the whole world seems to disappear. Lately, I've been putting on the Gaia channel, usually to some interview or another, and listen to it while I paint.

Some views of and from my booth:
