Happy New Year!

The Jane Eyre Painters (Kat Sowa, Za Vue, Jodi Burton, Quin Sweetman and I) have paintings on display beginning January 3 in the Art Gallery at the West Linn Library. Our reception is Sunday, January 13th at 1pm...(I hope you'll come...I'll remind you as the date gets closer).

On today, the last day of 2012, we drove to Rainier to visit with George Broderick. It snowed, we ate lunch, talked about painting and vowed to paint more (in a more disciplined way) in 2013.  (Slideshow below).

I'm beginning to feel as if I know George. He seems like such a good friend! Love the idea of the Jane Eyre group and I really love your painting. Maybe because I have Jane Eyre on the mind but I'm thinking this is Rochester? (Or whatever his name was? LOL)
