Hi Everyone!

Another week gone by. I am working hard on my Black To White paintings for my exhibit starting Jan 15, 2019. 
Wow can you believe 2019? 
Our weather here in Florence, OR. is unseasonably warm. Not as much rain as we use to get and the wind seems calmer too. EXCEPT for the other night when I thought our house was going to blow off the foundation. We lost some shingles. The roof is old so come spring we will get a new roof. The next door neighbor lost part of her fence too.  Hey that is coastal living in Oregon.  
Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday
Looking forward to seeing all of your art this week.
Now for my art.

Just for fun

 Still need to finish the Raven 
but you get the idea

My Magical Tree

It's a Mystery
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
