Artists' Point

18"x24" acrylic on canvas

Artists' Point is one of my favorite places to sit and relax in Grand Marias, Minnesota. It is a rocky peninsula surrounded by Lake Superior. I love to hear the waves crash against the rocks, watch the boats come into the harbor, hike the trail and smell the pine trees.

This painting was so much fun to paint and it brought back memories of my trip.

Sunlit Trail

24"x36" acrylic on canvas

This is a painting from our trip to the North Shore in Minnesota. I took reference photos on a hike to "Devil's Kettle" a large waterfall at Judge C.R. Magney State Park. This trail was not the main trail to the waterfall, but the way the light hit the trees and the path really caught my eye. So of course I had to paint it.

This weekend was the Danada Nature Art Show in Wheaton IL. I am excited to announce that I received the first place award for my painting "Refuge"! This is quite an honor for me as there were so many wonderful paintings and talented artists in this show. I wish we could have gotten a better photo though.
