This was from my sun-room window on Wednesday.  Today the willows were a bit more green.

  We are certainly having an earlier spring this year.  This is a photo  I took on April 27, 2013 from the same window.... a more typical spring.

Painting at the Beach

It has been an earlier than usual spring with lots of lovely days. This past week I've gone to the beach a few days and have worked on a couple of oil paintings and these little watercolors, all looking the same way, west towards the Salmon River.  Garden work has started, but today is raining and so a good day to put some things for all to see.

Plein Rein Retreat

When I returned to Alaska last month, I stayed a weekend in Juneau to join the Plein Rein painters at a retreat out the road in the Jubilee cabin at the Shrine of St. Therese.  I did several paintings and drawings, enjoyed being around other artists and ate lots and lots of good food. 


We drank a lot of good wine too.
