Winona Art Walk & Tour 2016

This Saturday,  November 19th is a big day for Winona Artists.   The Winona Art Walk & Tour and Hand Made Neighborhood showcase our area arts and crafts.  The Art Walk is from 10am to 4 pm with many artists at different locations.

I'll be showing my work at my home gallery/studio with "Woodenjoy" artist Gary Flynn.  We're excited for opportunity to greet old friends and meet new ones!

Gary's illuminated wooden lamps are beautiful and perfect for a calming low light.

Portrait of Athena

This is a oil painting of adorable fun & free spirit Athena.  She's an amazing 3 year old.  It's a wonderful challenge to find a setting and pose that express a child (or adult).  I do love painting portraits.
Also working on a project about women farmers and have two finished.  One oil and one pastel.  Thank you Jennifer Breitlow and Featherstone Farm!

March 2016

It's long past time for me to post some new work!  

A commission finished this winter of adorable "Mimi".  What a darling girl she is.  I thoroughly enjoyed trying to capture her thoughtful personality in oils.



More to come soon....
