233. "Mornin', Sunshine!"

"Mornin', Sunshine!"
6" x 12"
oil on gessoboard

I've been meaning to try this size for a while, and my sister's yard in Minnesota finally made me do it.
Some scenes just can't be contained in a square. ;)
I'm very happy with how this came out. :)

232. Catfish Capital

'Catfish Capital'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

Ok, I think I'm officially back in the painting zone - yay!!
Our summer was so great, - just jam-packed with all the great summery weather and happenings. 
The highlight, of course, was a road trip to Minnesota to see my family. 
(By way of Yellowstone Nat'l Park - even though we zipped through in record time, it was amazing.) 

I've shared some pics of our trip on my instagram (norabergman) if you're curious. :)

While in Minnesota, we made a quick trip to the Duluth area to see some of our dear friends, and on our way back to the farm, I snapped this little scene in Floodwood, Minnesota. 
The setting sun lighting up the 'Catfish Capital's' water tower. Swoon. 
And right across the road, a grain elevator! Ok, I saw the elevator first, - but double swoon! 
I have a feeling you'll see it in a painting sooner than later. Thanks, Floodwood!

Hey gang! 
I had a great summer and I can't wait to paint some of it for you! 
Looking forward to cozy fall days in my painting corner... :)
