Hi there! I'm popping in briefly just to keep you updated. Below is a photo I took of an 18 x 24 oil painting I'm working on of several strawberries. This piece is taking up a lot of my time, but I'm taking my time. I want this one to turn out exactly as I'm picturing it and nothing else will do! Red paints dry very slowly as well, so the detail work is taking time. I hope you enjoy what you see so far!
I've also posted a photo of me holding Simplified Living Magazine's summer edition. There's an article on yours truly and I'm so grateful that they chose to write about me. Visit their website for a list of places that carry the magazine. It is a beautiful publication and the quality is exemplary!
This past weekend I also participated in a fund raiser for the Art in Bloom here in Sudbury. The weather did not at all cooperate. It was a very cold rainy day, except for a few sunny breaks. But like the saying goes, the show must go and on it did.
Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you enjoy the photos. I'll post another progress shot of the strawberries soon!

Here's little ole me sitting in my studio holding a copy of Simplified Living Magazine.
Here I am again at the fundraiser during a brief sunny break. I shared a booth/tent with my good friend, artist Colette Theriault.
