Shadow Dancing

I thought this photo really says what my friend Jennifer and I are all about!
Cocktails on the deck, great music, and dancing with wild abandon as the
sun leaves us for one more day! Thanks Jen!

Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks!

I was listening to some of my FAVE music, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks and it inspired me to do the painting which now hangs in the Vernada Wine Bar downtown. Anyhoo...... here are the lyrics turned into a painting,

Tooooo much fun!

The Piano Has Been Drinking ((Tom Waits 1976)

The piano has been drinking
My necktie's asleep
The combo went back to New York, and left me all alone
The jukebox has to take a leak
Have you noticed that the carpet needs a haircut?

Free Bird

Soooooooo.... I just sent out one of the "Free Bird" prints to Oregon.
My newest friend, Janet googled Free Bird and found me! How fun it that?
Anyhoooo.....she wanted her daughter to be a "freebird" and ended up with
a print from Colorfulgirl.com. LOVE it! Here's her blog...

Magic hour!

Magic hour at the barn! Sunset reflections on the cloud
bank as it rolled by.....wow. The sky is so large on the top
of this hill, you never know what incredible formations you'll
get to take in each day. Cool or what?

History of the Ojibway People/ Library Chair

Okay! Here's a close up of the chair I did for the upcoming Great River Regional Library Gala. Each artist picked a book to use as inspiration, mine was History of the Ojibway People. I chose the book because the author William Warren is an ancestor of mine. My family history on my mother's side of the family is chronicled in the begining of this wonderful book.

Last Summer Sail on Superior

Well, we just got back from 11 days on Lake Superior,
beautiful weather on the water once again! We anchored in beautiful bays,
walked gorgeous beaches, visited old friends and sailed with new ones from Boston.
We watched eagles soar above us, bears wander in the bogs in front of us and
looked through the clear clean water to the lake bottom below us. Even though it didn't feel like fall,
I captured this red leaf floating on the water when we spent the day at another sunny beach.
