An Old Favorite, Revived

This painting reminds me of winter. It is a winter scene in southern Arizona. "Winter at Madera" is one of my personal favorites.

I've been away from painting for too long. I got caught up doing a million other things but nothing brings me back to peace like looking at scenic landscapes. Over the next year I have a major writing project I want to finish, I am writing a book, not about art, but about my other passion, which is health and wellness, especially for those who have been through the wringer of cancer treatment and trying to recover afterward.

In 2017 I intend to be more active with my art, both in the community and in creating new paintings. I've been busy recently as we just adopted a new puppy and are getting another one in a few weeks! Velcro and Gypsy will be my companions as they become big, grown up Australian Shepherds. There's nothing like an Australian Shepherd puppy though.

This is Velcro. She came to live with us three weeks ago. Her younger sister Gypsy will join us in mid-December.
These are Velcro and Gypsy's baby pictures, aligned side by side. Both at three weeks, but Velcro is 5 weeks older than Gypsy. (photo credit: Donna Rohde, Sky Blue Aussies)

On the art scene, I am currently displaying my work at a local restaurant called Tortilla Marissa's and will be a featured artist one month this spring at a local distillery (TBA). I will fill you in on that after the holidays. Hope to see you back here soon!
