Deep in December

This is the finished......well, almost finished piece that I posted as an underpainting a few days ago. I'll sit in on the mantlepiece in the studio for a few days until I decide if it needs changes.

It's an 8 x 10 oil on Ampersand gessobord, for a show in Colorado in June.

Why am I working so hard?

......when I could buy paintings direct from China for a fraction of the time, cost & effort? Geez - I could be shopping at the mall instead of spending each day in the studio!

This is an email received by my sister:

Your website is beautiful, we would like to do business with you.
We are skilled painters in Xiamen China, there are lots of talent painters working together in our studio.We can paint oil painting at every grade of different style, our price and service are very competitive, I am sure you can make more money than before if you buy oil paintings directly from us.
The FOB prices for the paintings in our stock can be USD7/pc for 20x24inch and USD12/pc for 24x36inch, if you are interested in, I can send some photos of our works to you, we also can paint exactly according to your any e-mail pictures, it is very easy to do the international business now, feel free to ask me any question, looking forward to your reply…

Colorado Landscapes

My sister, Joanne, only started painting two years ago. She works in oil, doing primarily landscapes. In the past year, she has sold about 20 paintings through the two galleries she hangs in, in Colorado. (

She has been invited to exhibit her work at 'Meet the Artist', an annual show in Breckenridge and
invited me to join her.

These 8 x 10 oil landscapes are for the show in Breckenridge in June.
