New paintings for December

The winter is my favourite time to be in the studio. I’ve completed these three pieces over the last few weeks, cozy indoors with the wood stove crackling, while it blusters and blows and snows out my windows. I love it!

The weather in Maynooth is getting chilly, but my wood stove is crackling warm and I’m happy and cozy in the studio! Even though the town has quietened down, The Black Spruce Gallery is still open. My regular hours are Friday thru Monday 10 to 5, and other times by appointment or by chance. Most days I’m in the studio painting, and my “Open” sign is up!
