This 8×10 oil painting was done so I could print some Christmas cards from it. It is one of my favorite types of scenes but also the most challenging. I am really looking forward to doing more of these paintings in 2018 and getting outside more to paint from life.

In 2013 I left my job in order to devote more time to my artwork. One of the ways I have been learning, is through online tutorials. I have been so encouraged with the amount of information that people share about their artwork.
A few of my favorite sites are: Tuscon Art Academy on line, mhttp://thecompleteartist.ning.com/ by Richard Robinson, and http://www.dailypaintworks.com/ with Carol Marine. These have been extremely helpful as I have been working at my painting.
