I LIKE small

I love this shot from Nahcotta Gallery.....plenty of small art neatly arranged, ready to hang....mine are in there. I'd like to see how they hang all this....I'll bet they do a great job. Check out the show if you're in the area.

The Enormous Tiny Art Show 7, opening Friday February 4th, 5-8 pm.

January Blue

The perfect type of January day....very clear and still...not too cold, the sun warming everything at mid afternoon. I picked this motif for the convergence of shadows.

Lost Dog Hill, January

I've painted this hill so many times, under many conditions. There seems something noteworthy about the little evergreen clinging so visibly to the slope....all alone. Lost Dog Hill on January 9th, 2:50 p.m. 7.25" x 6.5", acrylic on gessoed heavy paper, listed on Etsy.

Sumac Line

I don't generally do pictures this close to home but it does happen....the view out the front window. Interestingly, it was a view similar to this that started this whole small series more than a decade ago.

Although they are first growth scrub trees, I like sumacs and so do the birds, and the dense growth of them on this property line was useful in blocking road traffic in summer. But many were leaning dangerously into the power lines. I used a come-along to pull the trees, as they were cut, away from the power lines. The trees that are still leaning at extreme angles are in no danger of falling on the lines, so they were left.

This was painted on January 4th and I wanted a record of this little project...the stack of cut wood under fresh snow.
