There is something about sunsets and lakes come spring time. The excitement of summer evening and weekends outdoors really inspires me to keep painting these feel good paintings. The colors in the paintings are bright and vibrant and give a feel of energy and happiness.
Life has a way of throwing things our way that make us take a step back and reprioritize. I use painting as a way to relax and take a break from life’s demands and I am so grateful to have this opportunity. I have been getting more attention and orders for paintings than I would have ever expected and it’s GREAT. The one thing I am noticing is that I like to start a painting , take a short break, and then come back to it. This way I am able to get a better idea of what I want the outcome to be; especially with commissioned paintings. I currently am working on multiple commissioned paintings and I thank my clients for being patient, knowing that the final product will be greater if there is not a big rush. I am trying to get other paintings done as well as I am getting ready to hang some at a couple commercial businesses as well as setting up a tent at The Beer and Bacon Festival on May 14th. Come and have fun!
I have been focusing my recent paintings on Minnesota scenery and nature. I have received a very positive response to the recent nature based paintings in the State of the Art series and sold both paintings within days of finishing! I am planning on painting several more nature/lakescape paintings and am going to make a couple prints of each due to the responses I have received. I am also busy working on several commissioned projects….I am blessed to be so busy doing what I love!
