Fall has begun (only in paint!) And end of a show.

Here’s the beginning of Fall, next to the edge of Summer. Those lines are in there to make sure the series all flows together up on the wall. The funny thing is, I’m doing a lot of measuring, but I won’t actually be able to see them all together until they’re delivered. Because, although my studio is big, the paintings are bigger.

Snow Covered Hillside is on it’s way to it’s forever home. I hadn’t taken a real photo of it before, so I took one to show you before boxing the painting up. It has some great pallet knife texture! If you click the image, you can see what I’m talking about. This is something I’d like to explore a lot more.

Thanks, Julie, for being a new collector!

On a personal note, Thursday was my son’s last day of school for the year. Yay for summer break!! And today is my B-day, so we’re off to see Solo. 🙂

Happy summer, and thank you for your interest in my artwork! Comments welcome.

Farm and pasture painting. Minnesota and South Dakota landscape paintings.

I changed up the tree and greenery in the foreground quite a bit. Here’s the latest version of this painting. So much more pallet knife work… and paint! I feel like it’s more interesting, but also stands out from the rest of the painting more. What do you think?

Latest iteration:

Cow painting. Minnesota and South Dakota landscape paintings.

Last weekend we went to the Artist Retreat with SD Artists Alliance at The Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge. It was a great group and a wonderful location. Any artists in the area, I recommend checking out both.

(Painting is “Girl Next Door” – it’s the cows that moved into the field next to us – 12×24″,http://jessiesfineart.com/gallery/girl-next-door/)

Space (SOLD). Minnesota and South Dakota landscape paintings.

Going down the road in South Dakota, you look to the left and to the right and there are lovely fields with hay bales and the occasional house and barn surrounded by wind blocking trees. It’s a sparse vast land that is just full of color. That’s why this painting is named “Space.”

Sometimes I have to just let a painting live in the studio for a long time before I’m ready to ‘put it out there’. Does that happen to you? This is definitely one of those.
