Ready to Hang
Spotted this moose family separated by water on my way home after a long day of plein air painting in the mountains. Had to paint them! This is the big male moose, with mom and baby moose in my companion piece Heading Home II. Works alone, but created as a pair.
Artist. DIYer (yes, I can fix a toilet). Master procrastinator. Creative cook - bad at housework. Lover of gardens, but sad owner of a black thumb. Passionate about animals in general, dogs in particular, with a thing for moose. I did take art classes in college, but pursuing a career in art wasn’t practical, so I got my degree in Psychology (yup – definitely practical!) Worked in that field for a few years and then became – wait for it- an accountant. Do not ask. Eventually the need for a paintbrush took over and I never looked back. I need color. There are no beige walls in my house. Everything I have is decorated with (at least) a dab of paint. This includes all of my family members. I paint whatever catches my eye. Plein air in the spring, summer, fall. Not winter - even though I’m a hardy New Englander I don’t paint outdoors when the temperature dips below freezing (well- actually – below 50), so then it’s time for still lifes. Treasured objects, memories, Happy Meal toys. I am a juried member of the Oil Painters of America and a long time member of NH Plein Air Artists. My paintings like to travel and have found homes across the country and are making their way overseas.
