Red Bow on the Bright Side

8" x 10"
pastel on paper

The venue where my painting was hanging called on Saturday afternoon and said they had a buyer for my painting and said that the buyer wanted to talk to me. A delightful lady from Dixon , IL, got on the phone with me and told me how much she loved the drawing...it had a very special emotional meaning for her. We chatted for a few minutes about how I was from Davenport, Iowa, and quite often had been through Dixon on my way back and forth from Chicago and Lake Geneva. It was so nice to make another "midwest connection"! I know the "Red Bow" has a good home with a very special lady in Dixon.

Some beauty bought at the grocery store...couldn't resist. Do you think I have just a little spring fever?

Birches at Sunset

Because I live in a neighborhood called "the Birches", I thought I would try my hand at this Daily Paintworks challenge. I'm trying to loosen up my style and had fun with this challenge. What do you think?
