....and now, the University of Wisconsin, Marching Band!!

I did this charcoal with pastel as a birthday gift for an old friend from college. (I guess this would officially be called 'Mixed Media'!)   We attended UW together back in the 70's and have been great friends ever since!

It's always a special moment during a football game when the Band takes the field.....

This was a very different project for me but SO much fun to do!!  I was very pleased with the outcome and I think my buddy liked it too!!

Winding down our Winter in Paradise!

We've had a wonderful winter in Marco Island.  As we wind down and begin to plan to head back to the North country, I wanted to update this Blog for the latest paintings.  I was fortunate to participate in 2 shows this season called, "Paint and Brush'.  As the name suggests, they were only for 'paintings'!  I sold 6 pieces as a result of this new opportunity!!
