This is a 4' x5' commission I have worked on at Flat River Gallery and Framing for a few months now. The canvas was too big to work on comfortably in my studio, and it wouldn't fit in my car! Kind friends with a covered pickup were my canvas transport helpers. It's as yet untitled (something about cycles of the moon perhaps). It now hangs in a house in the woods over a magnificent fireplace in a great room with lots of windows. I am so honored to have it there. It's the largest painting I've ever done (except for some wall murals in my past). I did lots of sketches and it didn't follow the plan of any of them! It developed organically.

People often remark about my diversity of styles. I love to paint loose acrylic landscapes and I also love to do more abstract mixed media pieces. Because I've been working in the Flat River Gallery and 89 ART Scene so much I've been doing more landscapes because they are more portable. I need all the tools and mess in my studio to work in mixed media and if I did transport everything, I run the risk of making a giant mess in the gallery space!

I went on a trip through memory lane. I went back in time and looked at things I've blogged over the years. April 2, 2006 was my first blogpost. It's amazing to have this record of my work over the last 7 years.
