|New works! July 2015|
Mother Nature works overtime from June to August to effectively erase memories of the -40 degree temperatures and bleak, colorless landscape that dominate these parts half of the year. She gives us a million reasons to stay put even though we threaten to leave every February in search of warmer weather. These are the days we remember and long for each winter.
It's July. Days are long and warm and it feels like one can accomplish just about anything they put their minds to. For me, it's the perfect storm when it comes to productivity at the studio and the reason I've finished 6 new paintings so far this month (with another 4 new paintings in progress!).
My latest works are most definitely inspired by this place and time with hopes that they will transport us back during those long, cold days of winter and remind us why we stay on.
I have just finished 5 new 8x8" oil paintings on panel (above) inspired by Minnesota's unique natural landscape. I've also started a couple of 30x30" panels in the same style as well. So much fun to veer off in a completely new direction every so often! Hoping others will enjoy these as much as I do!

I don't often show work in progress as it can change so dramatically from beginning to end. However, I'm so excited about these new 30x30" panels (below) inspired by our Minnesota lakes, I can't wait to show them off! Come on by this Saturday to see this painting and other works in progress!Megan
In the meantime, thank you again for your continued support.
It means a lot to me and everyone else in our artist community that you
all keep coming back again and again! More than you know. This weekend I
will have the studio open (and AIR CONDITIONED!) for Open Studio Saturdays from 12-4.
Incidentally, I will NOT be open for First Thursdays in August but will
be back for Northrup King Nights (August 15th) and First Thursdays in
September and October! Hope to see you at an event soon!
