This is a large abstract (36 x 36 acrylic) that I painted for Steve & Bobbie. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to paint this commission for you!! I do miss it, but it couldn't have gone to a better home.

Why would I paint the local Round Rock YMCA?? Good question. This is for an upcoming fund raiser and the request was for a painting of the YMCA! There you have it. It was a challenge because this is not a particularly "beautiful" structure. It's a functional structure but I took a photo of the most attractive part; the entrance. I hope they like it. 11x14 acrylic on canvas.

This lighthouse is so far north, it's just minutes from Canada. It's a small sleepy little town with a lot of summer tourists. There was a sea plane giving rides, this wonderful big sailboat drifting by and some fun shopping. This is a 20 x 16 pastel on paper.
This is another lighthouse I passed on the way up to Lake Superior. I unfortunately failed to get the name of this one. However, one of my great art buddies who knows her lighthouses emailed me the correct name - so I'm reposting it. I liked it because it looked like a comfy house the lighthouse keeper had when he was not on duty. I imagined it was a very quiet peaceful job, although an important one at the time. This is a 16 x 20 pastel - the messiest medium there is to paint with!
