I really AM working!

I know I know.. I am already breaking my New Year's resolution to blog more often!  I'm sorry!  I am painting like crazy for three upcoming shows!  The first is a group show at The Wells Gallery titled "Wanderlust" for the March 4th art walk in Charleston, SC.  I have chosen to paint images from a trip to NYC to visit my oldest child, Cat.  And then for the art walk in April (April 1st), I am so thrilled to be having my premier show at The Wells Gallery  along with three glass artists.  LOTS of shiny surfaces and glass-  Can't wait to see it all together!   And finally, in May, I will be having a show at the Brandt-Roberts Gallery in Columbus, OH, with the opening on May 5!  PHEW!   I have several new paintings that I am anxious to share but will wait until after the shows open.  In the meantime, I will show a recent landscape I painted, showing the view out our front door one morning.  I am trying find beauty in this long, cold winter we are having!  Definitely ready for spring!!
