August Paintings 2014

Delivered my new paintings to Abbey Lane Gallery in Creede, Colorado! These are painted in gouache, a water based paint, mixed with interference acrylic paint which has a metallic iridescence to them. The metallic shows up when viewed at different angles and light. Very pretty but very hard to capture in a photo.

The first two shown below are twice the size that I’ve been painting. I have not taken exact measurements, but the paintings themselves  are approximately 10″ x 8″. They are  16″ x 12″ framed.

The rest of the paintings are approximately 5″x 7″ and are in a 12″ x 12″ frame.

Please contact Cheryl at Abbey Lane for purchase.

Blue Sky Trout

At the end of my fall in Creede, I went fishing at Buck Creek with my husband and three dogs, Dolly, Molly and Max. Molly, sadly, is no longer with us. We hiked in a few miles to Buck Creek. She had a wonderful day, following me in the stream, close behind but not crowding me, out of the path of the fly line, watching carefully for every fish I caught. She was about 13 years old, a lab mix. And, her adopted name was “Blue”. She was adopted for my in-laws, who changed her name, and she was returned to us when they passed. Blue all around; my pet, my loss, the trout, and the skies.
