Art for the Holidays

Hello Everyone,

I am excited to say that the yearly calendar is now for sale.... in fact I have 2 different calendars this year! The price is still $18 each but as a special deal I will sell 2 for $30. 

Calendars make great gifts and are affordable options to have art on your wall! I only have a limited edition of these calendars so if you are interested please let me know and I will put it on hold for you.

The calendar on the right is my annual calendar of all of my best paintings I have completed in the last year, and the painting on the left is a new version of my plein air paintings where I fit the painting into the actual scene behind it. I have gotten so much interest in these that I thought it would make a great calendar

Speaking of things to put on the calendar, the Grand Reveal Show is now less than a month away! I have such a hard time keeping secrets.... it's been a challenge for me to not show any of my Europe paintings until December 3rd, so I am looking forward to finally sharing them with everyone! In my opinion, this show will be my best one yet!

I would love for you to come join me on Sunday afternoon, December 3rd from 2pm to 5pm. I will be giving an artist talk at 4pm! The event will be held at Anam Cara Cellars in Newberg, OR. 

If you have any questions about the event or would like to reserve a calendar, feel free to send an email my way.

 

Cheers,

The Grand Reveal

Hello everyone,

I am glad to say that I am back home and finally over jet lag!

For starters, I want to thank each of you who have been following along on our journey through France and Italy this past month. It was quite the adventure—one I will never forget!

We saw Paris, Giverny (where Monet's home & garden is located), Florence, Assisi, Orvieto, and Rome.  

We also went to beautiful hilltop towns like Pienza and Montepulciano, which made me feel like I was in a real life fairytale! I have so much inspiration to continue painting all of the lovely memories.

I am very excited to invite you to my Grand Reveal event where I will be showing all of my paintings from Europe for the first time! The showing will be on Sunday, December 3rd from 2pm to 5pm at Anam Cara Cellars in Newberg, OR.

I am keeping all of my paintings top secret until then. I will have 9 oil paintings and 18 watercolor paintings (all of which I painted on site in Europe). Since I have been home I have been working on some larger Europe paintings that will also be in the show. I would love for you to join me at the show! I will be giving an artist talk at 4:00pm sharing some stories and thoughts behind the paintings.

It is crazy for me to think about all of the places I have been and things I have seen in the last month... feels like it was a dream in a lot of ways! Yet I have all of these paintings to remind me of how wonderful it all was.

Lastly, I want to give a big thank you to Valerie Rogers who planned the whole trip.  So thankful to experience so many wonderful places because of you!

Hope to see you all soon!
