St. Louis Show



I'm in the middle of trying to pack my compact car with +30 paintings. I've come to the realization that I just can't take some of my favorites because they're TO BIG!!! I love to paint large and use a huge bakers spatula because I feel like I've physically stepped into the creating process. This series of 11"x14" will be the bulk of my newest for this St. Louis show and with luck I'll be able to tuck some 40"x30" along.

I bet those 30x40 paintings give the feel of having a real tree in the room. Hope you're able to take them along. How exciting!

Thank you Janelle! (actually the ones that won't fit are close to 8.' I'm willing the 40x30" to fit.)

A spatula? What a great idea! I'll have to try it next time I hit a big painting. Love the second piece here in particular - great colours and expression of light coming through the trees. Wonderful stuff!
