Snow Shadows

The days are now getting longer, and so are the shadows.

A sign casts a shadow across the street.

With all the new snow, it's a beautiful mess.

I thought this was a bit abstract.

(Or maybe I'm just pooped from all the shoveling)

Oil on gesso'd board 5"x5"
Happy New Years Everybody!!

Winter Robin

I went to Deardorff Apple Orchard to look around for things to paint.
They now have a winery called Parley Lake. This was there first year,
and the Parley Vue is a hit!
They have several types of wine.
I may have a foot in the door to sell some art at the Orchard/ Winery
store on location.

Anyway..I spotted a robin eating crabapples.
A rare site & cool to me. (5'x7' oil on gesso'd board)
I thought this would make a nice Christmas post.
Thanks everyone for stopping by to see my blog.

Merry Christmas!

It's here! Snow!!
And we got a ton of it. Most people dread this when it happens, I
make the best of it and deal with it.
This is a view out my back window at the studio.
(of course the -20 below windchill is Brrrr!)

Ice fishin' sign

Bob is a friend that loves to ice fish. His stories are unbelieveable!
He had me make a sign for the fish house this winter. (sort of
a good luck thing.)
Soon we'll be "hammerin' the crappies & sunnys! Maybe a walleye
or two! Northern pike is another type of monster we catch.
I'll keep you posted, as I want to do some winter paintings in between
all the action.
(This sign is reflective vinyl on wood board, my cartoon fish
look like Bob, ha!)

Mr. Meowie

This is my cat Mr. Meowie.

My wife thought she'd take him to"Petsmart" to see Santa.
(yes, for the cat that has everything, you take him to see Santa)
I thought it was an accident waiting to happen, it was!
But when Renee's on a mission, I get outta the way.
Mr. Meowie is an artist, he drew blood.
I'm so proud of him!!
