This week I've been doing lots of these small 5 x 5 mixed media pieces on canvas and varnishing them.  I'll be selling them online and at upcoming art shows.  If you have any interest, you can check out my shop page. 

Next art fair up is Driftless Art Festival in Soldiers Grove!  Right in my back yard. Click here for more information about the Driftless Art Festival:  http://driftlessareaartfestival.com/

Snow Shadows

I have such a good time painting these snow shadows, which are some of my favorite colors.  This was really fun to complete and is based on the scene that was outside my studio where I used to live in Soldiers Grove, WI.  This stream is in the watershed of the great Wisconsin River.  We used to do volunteer water monitoring on it.  I hope it remains a world class trout stream.  I loved being around it in every season.  

You can see other applications of this image on my Fine Art America site.  Prints are available there, too.

Lake Superior View

I'm so amazed by the beauty of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world.  Right here in my home state of Wisconsin!   Anyone who has ever seen this lake cannot walk away without an experience of its presence.

 I just finished this yesterday morning.  9 x 12 size on 140 lb. paper.  

It's been quite fun posting more and more images on Fine Art America and connecting with people globally from that site.  To be perfectly honest, at first it seemed a little "kitschy" (or cheesy - when in Wisconsin...) to see my work posted on shower curtains.  But after VERY positive feedback from folks and customers on that site....I'm a convert and continue to post more and more to it.  

Here's the link in case you want to see many of my forest scenes applied to shower curtains, with a money-back, satisfaction-or-your-money-back guarantee. http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/diane-splinter.html
