Christmas Party & Painting Exchange

"Canola Field", pastel, 6"x6"

In May one can find the chrome yellow fields of canola blooming west of Portland. And what a sight they are. Vivid yellow flowers thickly blanket rolling hills and make a spectacular subject for a painting.

This is the piece I painted for the Paint-Out Group's Christmas Potluck and Painting Exchange.

Artwalk for Annie

"Early Morning Risers", pastel, 12"x9" (SOLD)

This is the painting I donated to last night's "Artwalk for Annie". It was a fundraiser to help with Annie's medical expenses. A lot of people turned out for the event and bought beautiful works of art that were 100% donated by many generous artists. Annie is a fantastic artist herself, gorgeous woman and all-around good person. It was particularly gratifying to see her at the event and the progress she has made. You go, Girl!
