September 18

A belated gift for Jeff and Nancy. They had a beautiful wedding in Toronto last fall. They blended American and Chinese traditions, so red was a featured color of the event.

Art 4 Shelter

limited edition prints available
I did this painting earlier this week for the Art 4 Shelter benefit that will be held at Circa Gallery on May 5. The art for this show/benefit is all 5" x 7" and will all be sold for $30. That is a deal. If you are in Minneapolis, you should definitely check it out. I know some of the other artists participating—there will be some great art to buy, to support a great cause.
As for my painting, it is in oil. You might see some similarities to one of my first posts. This concept/composition is in my head and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The same day, I finished a larger painting on this theme that I started last spring. It is about 16" x 24". And think there is still more to come. (I will try to get that larger one posted to my website in the next couple of weeks.)

Birch Forest preview

Here is the left panel of the birch forest. It is getting very close to complete. I will show the three-panel painting this Thursday during the Northrup King Building's First Thursday open studios.
