The Girl With the Pearl Hat

 

This potrait above is one of Ann's most recent. This young lady lived next door with her family. She had a most pleasant demeanor, a calmness around her, even though she had the constant work of managing three kids and a husband. I believe this oil painting captures that feeling.

Gulls have always fascinated Ann. This one I believe was in Door County Wisconsin, and like many didn't pay much mind to humans. I suppose they saw us as possible source of food, scavangers they are, and very suburbanized. Still an elegant bird.

We took a trip into the Boundary Waters just before freeze up. A number of paintings came out this adventure. On days that were calm and crisp, every setting seemed magical. This was Rick positioning his faithful canoe. Some days the weather offered up few quiet settings as the wind howled and snow spat on us.
