So Good 18x24, Highway 12x24, Breakaway 24x36

Three versions of the same sky! I know, it's hard to believe. But just as we are all experiencing winter in varying degrees, these new paintings show the heavens in a variety of wardrobes. I have been sleeping with the windows open the last week or so. Highs have been in the low 80's. Obviously our "winter" isn't the same as that experienced in my home town of Frostbite Falls, MN. Conversely, they haven't had to struggle with the difficult dilemma I've been confronted with. Matching smart combinations of shorts, sandals and T-shirts isn't as easy as one may think, and summer is right around the corner. That reminds me, I've got to get the pool ready.

Merry Christmas!

Snowbirds 24x36 Germaine 30x40

I wanted to post these with a cool Thanksgiving message a week or so ago. Sorry, I have been busy giving thanks and throwing oil paint around the studio like there's no tomorrow. I'm getting ready for post-holiday show and we're now preparing for a party the like of which our valley has rarely (if ever) seen. Warning; keep dogs and cats away. We are planning a multi-cultural, omni-culinary, all-faiths, international Christmas extravaganza event. Be sure to watch my uncle Bob's (Dylan) Must Be Santa video. It will put you in cheer mode faster than two pints of Tom & Jerry.
