Published works, new celebration reproduction, more…



I just got news that two of my paintings will be published in the next Oakwood magazine! If you haven’t seen it, it is a beautiful literary and art magazine published by the University of South Dakota. Thank you, Oakwood!

Baby Carrier is a small watercolor painting of a mom and baby just going about their business. I don’t know about you, but for me seeing women (or men) wear babies just makes me happy.

I love this little painting, so having it chosen to be published makes me very happy. To celebrate, I am offering reproductions of this painting in 3 print sizes, from simple to fancy ($24-150).


The other painting that was accepted is one of my abstract works, Bio (shown at page bottom). This is the first time one of my abstract paintings will be published, so it’s pretty exciting for me!


In other news, I’m doing another giveaway to increase my newsletter subscribers! As always, if you are signed up for this newsletter, you are automatically entered into the drawing.

This time two people will win their choice of the four art prints shown below (8×10, including a white border, ready to frame). And something new – the people who referred those two people will also win an art print! So go again and share.

Thanks for looking!


Bio, prints coming soon.

Yellow Light, and Minneapolis Art Gallery wall space

Yellow Light is a very pretty little painting that has been brightening my studio. I’ve been thinking of making large giclee prints of it. I just feel like that would be a happy thing. If that sounds great, let me know. Anyone who expresses interest early will get a nice little gift in the mail when they purchase a print. 🙂


The folks at Art Resources Gallery in Minneapolis were nice enough to send me a photo of my wall space. Aren’t the frames gorgeous? I’m curious if anyone on my mailing list is in the Minneapolis area and has been in there?
