"Colter Bay Serenity" Jackson Lake, WY

"Colter Bay Serenity" 24x18" Oil on canvas

Thanks to all who attended my gallery show last week. We had a great turnout of over 125 people, 6 paintings sold along with 14 of my little blog books. The most common comment I heard all night was how surprised everyone was by how much brighter the paintings are in real life. Guess I need to work on some better reproductions. The painting above was included in the show, the last one from my summer series, or at least for now. I still have lots of photos that I want to paint from but I want to get back to working on some more 6x6" still-lifes.

Dave and I have started planning what highways we can head on down next summer. We'll be taking a new addition along with us, a used 17 ft. canoe.

I am slammed right now with end of the year graphic design work but do plan to carve out time each day to continue painting. I will start auctioning off the new still-lifes on my ebay store over the next few weeks. Click here to view my portfolio www.flickr.com/nancyparsons.
