203. Foggy Mirror

'Foggy Mirror'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

I can't get enough of this fog!
I caught this little scene last weekend on the Columbia River Dikelands near our town. 
This lowland marsh district is full of farms, water-filled ditches and grazing livestock. In the distance, foothills and ridges stand guard. 
This time of the year, the clouds and fog in this area are ever-changing and just lovely. 

Right now, though, a winter storm is blasting through, complete with flickering lights and extremely high winds. I have three very excitable young boys bouncing off the walls and repeatedly opening the front door to get a better look. I better go get the candles and flashlights ready. :)

Oh, and in case you missed it - my 2015 calendars are available here.

Thanks for viewing!

202. Dalena Hill

'Dalena Hill'
6" x 6"
 oil on gessoboard

I mean, what a lovely part of the country in which I get to live.

On a clear day, a few more seconds of travel will reveal Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams, peeking (peaking? ;)  ) over from Washington state.
I never tire of this view.

Happy Weekend!

201. The Normal Tree

'The Normal Tree'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

I must credit my three-year-old for the title, - he was very disappointed that I was painting just a 'normal tree', as opposed to a much more festive Christmas tree. :)

This normal tree is seasonally appropriate to me; we had many 'brown Christmases' when I was a kid. I didn't like them then, but I can appreciate their subtle beauty now. Several years in the perma-green environment of the Pacific Northwest (which I completely love), has made me all the more aware of the lovely sepia tones of midwest winters, especially on those overcast, frigid, snowless days. 
(This photo is from a Minnesota November.)

And also, making that collage of my 200 paintings had me overwhelmed with color. Too much color!
 Lol. Don't worry, I'll get over it - you know I can't stay in one spot too long. ;)
