He Is Risen!

Christ defeated death, so we can too!
Took a walk through the woods today, it was beautiful.
Saw some deer, the creek was running, many birds chirping.
Ate Easter dinner at my sons house, his wife Audra made
Luthuanian easter eggs for the grandkids. I've never seen
these before. She used leaves and onion skins. Fun!

Minnihaha Falls

This morning my underpainting was dry so I

went into it with color. This is another way to

approach the 'canvas'. It sure helped to control

the values!

Minnihaha Falls

The water is flowing, the ice is off the lakes!

This is a scene many people come to in Mpls.

I mixed cobalt violet & Indigo blue and used

liquin for a medium, (per Stapes advice)

Once this drys I can add color.
