Painting Featured in Northern Gardener Magazine

Right there on the bottom of page 8 of the November/December issue of the Northern Gardener magazine is my painting of a wild columbine. I'm very excited to have one of my paintings employed again in the annual fundraising campaign of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, publisher of the Northern Gardener magazine.  Support MSHS and you could receive a fine art print of this wild columbine painting.  FYI - the painting is also featured on page 6.

MSHS is a great non-profit organization that promotes gardening and helps gardeners in Minnesota.  The magazine is the only gardening magazine that focuses on cold weather climates like that in the upper-Midwest.

The original painting will be auctioned off at the MSHS Spring at the Inn event at the end of March.

Illustration: Khaki Shorts and Polo Shirt

These are the most comfortable clothes that I wear.  Well, not in the wintertime.  But in the summertime, these are the most comfortable. I only have one pair of these shorts and one of these shirts but feel like I should just buy seven of each and wear nothing else. Well, of course, underwear. It is important to feel comfortable on a warm beautiful summer's day.

Drawing: Beets

Ink drawing of beets I drew last weekend at the farm.  We pulled them out of the garden, washed them and then I was going to draw them, but I fell asleep.  Next morning, Saturday, I pulled them out of the fridge and arranged them on a plate.  I hope to make an oil painting of this subject someday soon.
