Guest Artist in the gallery

During the month of December, the Kuhr-Norris Studio & Gallery is hosting a guest artist: Marilyn Livingston. Her works in fused glass are a vibrant showcase of light and color.

Making signs

Had some days off from school this week, so I spent some time painting signs for the studio/gallery. In addition to the sign pictured here, I painted one to hang out the window to hopefully attract the attention of people walking around town.

Landscape Studies

There is a gorgeous road in Sonoma County called Coleman Valley. It runs from the town of Occidental to the coast, and there are many stretches which have sweeping views. Several days ago I had the opportunity to paint there. I did these two 5"x7" studies which I will use as inspiration for a larger studio piece. Staring at this view was a beautiful way to spend a morning!

Mendocino Blues

This studio painting is based on a photo I took this summer while walking along the bluffs in the town of Mendicino. The blues of the sea were breath-taking.

Lakeside Gold

This painting was completed in my studio. I used a reference photo that I took at Eastside Regional Park in Healdsburg, CA. The fall colors are spectacular there!
