Fishing at Sunset series...

The buyer of the original "Fishing at Sunset" (above, center) requested two more pieces to coordinate with they are! It was a challenge to create these two, considering I had to base it off of pictures of the original (which is happy in it's new home!) combined with the fact that it has been many years since I had painted it!

Right Around the Corner

We'll be seeing scenery like this before you know it! Good because the colors are amazing but bad because it only means winter in northern Illinois is inching closer.

Autumn Tree gouache 7.5"x10"
My first try at gouache...semi-successful I think. Different than working with watercolor.

Autumn Pond watercolor 7.5"x10"
Good old watercolor...

Wine Trail Collage

For a while now my dining room has had a lonely wine rack with plenty of open wall space next to it... but now that has changed. I am very excited to have just finished my wine trail collage! During my honeymoon in Traverse City, MI my husband and I traveled along the Old Mission Peninsula stopping at some of the wineries along the way. Each part of the collage contains bits and pieces from that trip. Pictures to come soon...
