You Gotta Have Art

We are so fortunate to have the Cedarburg Cultural Center in our greater Ozaukee Cty. community.  I did a painting demo that day and this rooster painting sold at the live auction that evening for the fundraiser.  Eight more paintings are on display and for sale.  Your support will help keep this vibrant center moving forward for years to come!

Calendar Cow

Happy to announce one of my cow paintings "Christmas Cow" has become a calendar girl!  This beautiful calendar is filled with art images from many local artists represented by Bohemia in Cedarburg.  They are donating all profits from the sale of this calendar to Meta House, a local womens charity.  The core mission at the Meta House is to help women reclaim their lives from the effects of substance abuse. 
Thanks to Jenny and Julie at Bohemia for a great first year!

More Lake Michigan Adventures

The temps have warmed up enough (above zero) for more painting time along the frozen shores of Lake Michigan.  Lots of icecanos and moaning/groaning of the lake under the ice.  Making it a full sensory experience.

Painted on Feb. 12th, earlier in the morning a nice soft peach light flooded the lake, but flurries quickly moved in. 
Here's a shot of my friend Lynn painting and we met a great group of young high schoolers from Rufus King who were at Schlitz Audubon on a field trip.  They asked great questions, were very polite and seemed to be having fun snowshoeing along the frozen shoreline.
Back to the shoreline on Feb. 13th after a fresh snow. 
BRRRR.  It was very cold that day.

Hiking back up the hill and finding a nice note in the snow most likely from one of the awesome nature preschool teachers!
