Maine Abstract Autumn Woods Nature Painting

24"x36" Acrylic on gallery wrapped stretched canvas.
I'm very relieved that I sold a couple of paintings online today!
I just might celebrate by going grocery shopping tomorrow
I finished one commission today and am working on another I hope to get out early next week.
It's not easy, but at least it's possible. And "they" can't take it away from me.

Major Computer Failure but ...

I'm back! And on my new Gateway, which I love! I'm very grateful that a friend lent me a laptop for a few weeks, but am glad to be back on my own machine again. Now I just have to pay for it! This is a new very large 28"x42" oil painting of an ocean sunset.
