14x17" oil
I've been so busy with commissions and the holidays that I haven't painted "just for me"; this painting is one I've had on the back burner for weeks. I really enjoy the colors in this piece. I deliberated over the background color for days - this color has just the right amount of green and blue in it to make me happy with the choice.

Christmas Surprises

I've finished this portrait and it's frame for a friend - a Christmas surprise. The photo is of her dad holding her as a little girl. I love her pigtails and little fist grabbing her dad's shirt.

Some Pictures from Tonight

Here are some pictures from tonight's live painting demo at Terra Nova Gallery. There was a good crowd and  I met many new people. One of my tulip paintings at the gallery sold while I was there. I always like meeting new collectors so I was happy to be there at the same time.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
