Light it Up!

Nov 11, 2023

This week I have been getting ready for our annual Vista Lights celebration. Picking up from the framers, getting last minute pieces finished up. Cleaning the studio. I have updated my website with all available work. Here are a few new pieces that will be ready for the show.

“Along the Way,” oil, 8×10, McNinch

I am known to stop wherever there is something calling to be painted. 

“Causeway View,” oil, 8×10, McNinch

There were only a few minutes to paint, but sometimes that is enough. 

Happy with the brevity of this piece.

“October Marsh,” oil, 8×10, McNinch

There is a little spot where I can observe the marsh without interrupting it. 

Our natural world can always bring me joy.

Stormwater Studios will be showing off our new space.

We are converting a container into show space!
