What a Week in Utah! -- Sold

"Lickety Split"
Oil on Linen
30" x 15"
And I just thought we were going Skiing!!!

What started out to be a week to ski Brighton and Solitude ended up landing me my first Gallery out West. On the off chance I might have an opportunity, I painted “ Lickety Split” on flat linen, rolled it up and stuck it in my suite case with the hope it would not be coming back home with me.

My wish came true and it is currently being framed to hang in Mountain Trails Gallery in Park City Utah. I will also be shipping several other works out there this week!

"On Display"

"On Display"
6" x 8"
Oil on Gator Board

This is what I came up with from this week’s Different Strokes from Different folks challenge. As everyone seems to have said, when I first saw the photo I thought,,,, maybe not so much! But once I started playing around with it I had an absolute blast. What fun it was to work with such bright colors and be so loose with my brush strokes. Bravo Karin, I think this has turned out to be one of the best yet!!
