Willow sunrise

I was asked to participate in landscape show at the Accola Gallery, in Wisconsin, and this is one of the pieces I will be sending. ( The show runs from October 7 through Thanksgiving. Jean Accola (owner) does beautiful watercolors and oils, and we share an interest in the prairie landscape of the midwest.

Morning Trees

I painted this a few weeks ago and I think it will be the last really green painting of the year... one of our maple trees already has a lot of orange and the grasses are shades of gold and flax.
There is a new excitement in the air as the warblers are beginning their migration and arrows of geese are moving across the sky.

Two Strawberries

Some of you may already know this but my sister and I are planning a studio sale here at the farm on Sunday, October 12, from 1-5 pm.   I will have paintings and ceramics on display for sale and my sister Mary  (check out  will  have her hooked rugs and silk scarves that she hand dyes with local botanicals.  Everyone is welcome so feel free to pass on the information.  This week Mary and I will be designing a mailer that will have more information, including directions, and I will post it here when it is done.  I will be busy between now and the show with framing and getting this place in shape so I may not get a lot of painting done but I will try to keep posting once a week (on Mondays) so please check-in.  I hope everyone is out enjoying the amazing Fall weather!
