Studio Challenge

The Kuhr-Norris Studio & Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of a building on Main Street in Guerneville, CA. I have been surprised at how difficult it is to get visitors to the town to notice that we are here. This is disappointing, and we are trying to come up with creative solutions to this. One thing I do on weekends is put one of my paintings and one of Suzy's photos in the windows and illuminate both.

Dry Creek Afternoon

This is a plein air painting, done on a beautiful, hot day in Dry Creek Valley. My wife, Kimberly, painted with me that day, which made it extra fun. 

Lazy Day on the River

This painting sold to Patte, who owns a massage business in Guerneville, CA. She has bought a cabin with land that goes down to the river and she is moving her business there. This painting will go live in that cabin. So nice that a painting of the Russian River will now go to a cabin by the river! 

Kuhr-Norris Studio and Gallery

The Kuhr-Norris Studio & Gallery opened on July 4, 2014, and it has been a grand adventure so far. Suzy Kuhr and I have both sold pieces each month. This does not make me feel sure of anything in the long winter months ahead, but I am very grateful for the success we have had thus far. Since we both work full time, we don't have to panic about selling a lot. If we sell enough to pay the rent, we are happy!

Still Waters

"Still Waters" sold today! My friends, Marty and Z, who live in San Francisco, purchased it. I confess to being happy that people I know bought it as it is one of my favorites.
