I will draw a winner on November 2nd, and announce here on the studio journal and elsewhere on social media. Want to double your chances of winning a ‘September Waters II’ print?

    Beautiful work – love your inspiration philosophy….

    I don’t know if you are looking for strictly looking for painting suggestions; hard to pick favorites, but I especially likes Spring Shadow and Fallow Field from your pastels on paper; and Freezinf Fog Ann’s Echo from your oil on panel collections.

    Lovely – all of them!

    How could I possibly resist a chance to win one of your prints!? A wonderful opportunity to scroll through your works, like bursts of bright sunshine on a gray October morning. I shared/liked on Facebook and Instagram and Twitter! Congrats and best wishes on your new and exciting ventures. I would choose one print for each season. In Saffron Wood, Freeze & Thaw, Sound of a Coming Storm, Meltwater Blue. Good luck choosing, tough choices, a good problem to have. ๐Ÿ™‚
