16 x 20" mixed media on canvas panel
I have four paintings in the works right now...2 oils and 2 mixed media. I love to work in oil, but it's easiest for me to allow the layers to dry somewhat before going on, otherwise I mess up and cost myself a lot of time. Since I am not much of a sitter, I decided to try something new and work on acrylic and mixed media pieces while the layers of the oil paintings are drying. This routine seems to be working pretty good and it allows me to work in all the mediums I love. It dawned on me that nursing had taught me to be pretty good at mulitasking, so I decided to apply that skill to my art too. So far, so good.

This winter, I am in awe of the bare trees and since discovering the charming red shed by our house, I have noticed dozens of others all through the neighborhood while on my walks. I want to start knocking on doors and asking my neighbors if I can photograph their shed, but they would probably think I was a weirdo.
In honor of this shed discovery, I painted this little one set in a wide open Kansas field. Doesn't that green make you long for Spring? It does me.
