I have been pretty busy, with two paintings in the works. Don't get me wrong it is fun, with a little stress worked in. I've had good intentions to get a blog done but it never materialize. I did however get my new website designed and if you care to take a look here's the address: www.whiteoakstudioandgallery.com. Please leave your comments here, let me know what you think of it.
I have a painting materializing in brain that I want to do in the near future, it will be a surprise and I will post it here with the story behind it. I hope to get started on it sometime in April after I finish the two that I'm working on.
Each of the paintings I do are prompted and inspired by true stories, sometimes about my close friends or something happening in my life. For example, a dear friend's hubby was very ill and he loves to ice fish and this inspired me to paint him a get well painting of a snowman ice fishing, or this snow spa snowman I did for a friend who had her own soap, lotions, spa business. A friend was moving away and I did one for her that represented her favorite character in a novel. All of the snowmen I paint have special meaning behind them, I believe that is what gives them their personalities and characters. I have a whole series of them listed on my website and I do hope you have an opportunity to visit it.
