A Trip to the Islands

We're having a heat wave in St. Louis; up to 55 tomorrow. I am busy with Christmas preparations and have put my paints away for a couple of weeks, so nothing new to share. But here is a favorite tropical painting titled Playing In The Sand.

My heart goes out to those struck by the recent ice storm. Hopefully power will be restored soon.

Do you ski?

I don't because I don't like to go fast. That eliminates snow skiing, water skiing and motorcycles, at least. But my sons love it. It all started when their Dad and Aunt gave them their first lesson about 15 years ago.

Here's a little painting of that day titled Ski Lesson. Prints are available in my Etsy shop and would make a great gift for someone in a skiing family!
