Plein air painting last week along the Milwaukee River.  The session started in sun, but that quickly went away.  It was a real challenge painting this in overcast conditions, but always an enjoyable experience.

It's always a nice having a venue to exhibit your work locally.  And that opportunity came knocking a few months ago from the energetic and creative team at Bohemia in Cedarburg. 
I am honored to be among other local artists who have their work at this fun new shop in Cedarburg.  It's a wonderful mix of home decor, art and accessories in the heart of downtown.  Just a few doors down from Amy's Candy Kitchen, home to the super yummy apples! 

Stop in, browse, chat and be inspired!

Back on the Ice

It was a great feeling getting my boots back on the ice and my easel in the snow this weekend up in Door County (Wisconsin).  Yes, it was bitterly cold and my oil paints acted up, but once again I resorted to my trusted friend -- the palette knife -- to move paint around. 


For me, nothing comes close to the amazing stillness of Lake Michigan during the winter.  It's a peaceful painting experience full of breathtaking colors.
