First Paintings of 2008







These represent 6 of the 10 small paintings finished this week, the first of the new year. They are 4x6", wee studies from past travels. I am dreaming of going, going anywhere, going out into the landscape more this year. Time to fill the well and research new terrain. I'm working on finishing paintings that were started at the end of last year while at the same time going out on mini-adventures up the coast and inland.

Utah and Sundance have been on my mind often as well. I am thinking this is the year to go home, back to familiar surroundings and the feelings of a long held love affair with a place.

I like your paintings...I can hear the waves, feel the wind and my hair and smell the salty foam....
