Below is a 9"x12" acrylic study of two cranes in a shallow pond.

This weekend's group show opening was successful and fun. I had the fun opportunity to live paint with James Garcia of Kulayan Arts and Wednesday Kirwan of Gama-Go. I loved seeing how other artists work. We had different palettes and ways of working. It's nice to be surrounded by other artists who are full of integrity, honesty, creativity, and openness.

At the live-painting, I started off with a tree in the snow. I wanted to juxtapose the grey of the sky with the lush pink of foliage. James started with a beautiful tree against a textured blue background. We're hoping to finish these two collaborative pieces sometime soon and re-post the final.

Thanks to all of the artists and the friends and family who love and support them!
