"A Year of Learning to Paint"

40+ paintings finished and the show is hanging!!! 
(At Clayton's in Yarmouth, Maine)

In January of 2013 I had to teach myself to oil paint again after years of letting the paints sit in a tote bag with the tops dried on so tight I needed a pliers to pry them loose and stacks of unused canvases collecting dust in the storage unit. I decided that I would do this entire show without buying any new supplies—to use all the paints, canvases and brushes I already had.

A most amazing, challenging, discipli
ned and creative year of learning to paint.

 Hanging the show with my amazing friends Patti and Elizabeth.

 I never thought I would get here—DONE...for now...

I AM IMPRESSED. If I didn't live all the way over in Oregon, I'd come to the show. I still want that cow you did early on. Hope it goes well for you.

HI Jennifer
I realized that I had not ever gotten back to you about purchasing an oil painting. I noticed your show...it looked very impressive!!!
Did you sell them all? I am partial to one of the pelicans. Thanks
