My painting sold!

I was thrilled to receive a letter from Face to Face of Sonoma County telling me that the painting I donated to their Art for Life auction sold for $150. It is exciting to think of someone having it in their home and enjoying it!

Monte Rio Cottage

Today I went to the neighboring town of Monte Rio, thinking I would sit next to the river and paint the bridge. However, there was no good view in which the sun wasn't shining directly in my eyes. I walked around a bit and saw this cute cottage. I've been trying to paint more buildings lately; I'd like to learn to do townscapes. This little painting still needs some work, but I think it is off to a good start!

Guerneville Bridge #3

This is my third attempt at painting the Guerneville Bridge. I think it is better than my first two attempts. I am sure I will go back, to try again soon.
