I thought I would send a photo of the painting of the big snow-covered pine tree that I wrote about after our last snowstorm. I am enjoying this, although I have a feeling that there will be changes made as I go along. I am thinking hard about the colors that could be under the tree, and also the final sky color.

Someone once wrote this to me: "Your painting is the first thing I see when I come home from work at night. It brings me the pe
I'm delighted to say that "A Red, Red Rose" is flying out of the studio to her far-away new home. Because so many people wrote to ask for a print of this painting, (even from England!), I am having a small edition of twenty-five prints made, which will be available to ship in time for Valentines' Day.
