Portrait reveal

Meredith, Olivia and Emile. Aren’t they lovely? I’m really excited about how this portrait came out. I think their affection is apparent, as well as their likeness.

The collector loved the painting from the photos I sent, but I’m waiting anxiously to hear how it was received in person (I do that every time I ship a painting!). Some of my paintings look just as good in a photo, but some – maybe most (like this one) have a luminous quality, and some subtlety, that I think makes them better in person.

A portrait of three people takes me a little more than three times as long to paint thank a painting of one person. There’s the obvious challenge of getting each portrait correct, with the added challenge of getting the portraits to work well together.


Thanks so much, Manny, for being a collector! I hope your painting brings your family joy.

Horse Art & Brookings Arts Council

I just took this horse painting down to Brookings Arts Council. It’s all framed up and lovely.

Trio I am excited to deliver because I feel like the brush quality and level of abstraction is exactly where I want to be as an artist.

This painting will be available for purchase through BAC during the show, and giclee prints and canvas prints are available through me.


I’ve spent the last week completely filling up our local coffee shop with about 20 abstract paintings (and have gotten a lot of positive feedback – thank you!), and now I plan to take a few new landscapes to the South Dakota Art Museum. I’m feeling like I have a good local presence right now!

Thanks, and have a great weekend!
