Outer Island

Okay, here I go again!
It's snowing tonight and so I'm revisiting last summer....Outer Island, Dan and my friend Deb on the spit.
The absolutely BEST rocks on Lake Superior are here, very cool. It's an Island right on the edge of the
Apostles and  nothing on the other side but the vast lake and miles and miles to Michigan. When the wind is right you can cruise right into the bay and anchor on the lee side, dinghy in and walk WAY out on the sand spit....

New Show at Falcon National Bank coming up in May!!

I'm so excited! I will have my work on display at Falcon National Bank during May and June this year. They have LOTS of wall space, so I'm paint, paint, painting up a storm!

Tom's Burnt Down Cafe / Madeline Island

More warm thoughts...Yup, that's us.... vandalizing the place!
Actually it was Andy!
Had to make sure our boats names were included in the memories!
The weekend Stearns County Pachanga Society was playing up there.

Thinking about green grass.......

I know, I know...we're ALL sick of winter... but today as I was bundled in my faux fur, bent into the fridgid wind... I thought what all Minnesotans are thinking .... ENOUGH ALREADY!!  Ha Ha Ha! I say this on supposedly the last below zero evening for a bit...JUST in time! This is how I want my mornings to begin again. Beautiful blue sky, green hills and a cup of coffee on my fabulous deck.

Woodburned design on the back

Oooooooooo.... awwwwwwwwhhh...

Colorfulgirl "Viola, Patron Saint of Beautiful Music" is finished!!

Just finished! She turned out great!
Really thrilled with the results.She's a fabulous mix
of paint, wood and texture.
She could be yours, too. Check out the auction
for the St. Cloud Symphony.

Step two in the viola creation!

Blocking in the color! Thought I would do my signature style for the viola. I think she'll have to be called "Viola" Patron Saint of Beautiful Music!
I'm also woodburning the sides and back of the instrument.
SO much fun!

"Before" Viola for Symphony auction

Here she is....my canvas for the upcoming St. Cloud Symphony "Duets" fundraiser. They are pairing wine and music at the Pioneer Place! They will have six local artists paint violins and I happen to have this wonderful viola to inspire me!
