I was having a hard time figuring out what to paint during the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge in February. I like to plan it out so that I’m not wasting time scratching my head every day staring at a blank canvas. I’ve been wanting to do some more skyline paintings, but I was coming up short with reference photos, and the weather wasn’t giving me what I wanted either.
I saw a soup commercial that said something like, “What’s the best thing about January? It’s not February.” Gasp! Not cool. I started making a mental list that turned into an actual list of all the awesomeness (some local) that happens in February. The list grew, and suddenly I had a theme for my paintings. I present February’s Best:
Happy February, everyone! Look for my daily-ish paintings on my Instagram feed after I get over the flu. No, my February is not off to a great start. Thank goodness there's so much to look forward to.

I do! I make it, sell it, think about it, look at it, read about it, and (sometimes) I write about it. Join my mailing list, and you'll receive my brief--promise--messages about new work, shows, events, and a little inspiration. Probably a picture of my dog, too.
