Artists of Minnesota

The Artists of Minnesota meet two times yearly at locations across the state. This year was in Brainerd. The event is always a good time: connecting with artist friends, enjoying a variety of artwork, and checking out the local art scene. I had hoped to spend some time painting outside, but was surprised by a major snowstorm! Blowing winds and 12 inches of snow made it very unpleasant for painting outside, so I had to satisfy myself by cruising the art store. There's always something I "need".

Here I am with two of my paintings in the exhibit.

Winter winds down

Just a few days before the official start of spring I was out painting. It may not look  like spring to some, but look closely, my jacket is open, the ice is receding, you can almost see color coming to the twigs of the branches. We have to be optimistic here in Minnesota. Soon there will be daffodils.
