Reach High

Reach High
oil on panel

I am extremely tired, so although I have been missing this place for a couple of weeks, I am too pooped to spend too much time on a post tonight. More on that later. At any rate it is still a special day... My one year blogging anniversary... and I turned 42! Eek!!! Apparently a good number of blogs fizzle out after the first three months, so I suppose making it to a year is a bit of an accomplishment. Starting the blog was the best decision I had made for myself in a long while. Here is a link to my first post... as well as a link to the one that sets the tone for what I wanted to explore through my blog. I am so thankful for the wonderful art and artists I have learned from on this cyber adventure... I hope you all stick with me for another year.

And I would love to give all of my Followers a painting, but sadly that is not possible. I did, however, make a draw from the list of names/aliases on the right-hand side and I will mail the above painting (done en plein air) to this special person as soon as it is completely dry. Here is how it went...

Congratulations Janie!!! You were one of my very first Followers and I have always appreciated the comments you have left for me. I hope you like this little painting and thank you again for the excitement you have shown for my art. I actually named this painting "Reach High" after I drew your name... I think it works for the piece and also, since you are a teacher, I am certain that you are always encouraging your students to reach their highest potential. I'm going to send you an email now... 

Over the next few weeks I will post more of the paintings I did at Emma Lake.
