Christmas House Portrait

There are some house portraits that are particularly satisfying, such as this Winter scene with Christmas decorations. The way the colors blended at the horizon and the snow fell on the trees make me happy. This painting clearly says “it’s Winter”. Can you feel the cold air?

Mackinac Island

I’ve finally gotten serious about filling sketchbooks with drawings, whether travelling or at home. This sketch is Mackinac Island, a peaceful place where there are no cars or trucks allowed other than emergency vehicles. There are horse-drawn wagons and carriages; you may also get around town with a bicycle or explore trails on foot.
