A Little Early Christmas

I just finished this one for the Friend magazine. The funny thing about working for certain publications is the lead time. I end up doing summer images in March and Christmas stuff in August. This one was no exception as it will go to print in a few weeks to begin distribution right around Thanksgiving. I know not all magazines work this far in advance, but the Friend typically works so far ahead, that I often forget I even did something until it shows up in my mailbox.

The intent of this piece is to help remind folks that there is a bit more to Christmas celebrations than decorations and presents and that we should take a little time to remember the real reason for the season. It was nice to take a few days to think about the upcoming holiday and think about what it truly means. Enjoy!

Upcoming Landscape Show

I am pleased to be part of an upcoming landscape painting show at my newest gallery, Evergreen Framing Co. & Gallery in September. The Afternoon of Art show will include my work along with fellow gallery artists Aaron Fritz, Claire Tollstrup and Jodi Steen.  I will be unveiling a number of brand new works including the one pictured above. An opening reception will be held Saturday afternoon September 11th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Please come by to say hi, check out some great art, have a snack and maybe do some early Christmas shopping!
