This painting is available for purchase 8" x 8" acrylic on paper - unframed $90.00 - Contact me!  This is one of the acrylic paintings I painted in Ireland this spring!  I was inspired by an art exhibit on the "Battle of Ventry" during the Spring Festival Bealtaine.  The battle was fierce, but LOVE was a big part of the story.

This is a painting in one of my sketchbooks from teaching in Iceland this year.  June was a beautiful time to go!  We had perfect weather (almost) all the time and so much fun painting in the great outdoors and at the cottage table.  The glacier and this volcano cone were right outside the cottage - every day "hey, there's a glacier out here!" - It was dream come true to go to Iceland and PAINT!  Add in Viking "Sushi", Brunhilda Cake, the scallops at the hotel, fish and chips at the food wagon in Arnarstapi, and the mussels with LIME in Stykkisholmer (don't you love Iceland place names?)... and not just the wonderful food - there was also the Black Pearl beach, hand woven Icelandic wool, Skardsvik beach, Icelandic horses, great friends, my significant birthday, crazy birds, Lupines, gale force wind, painting watercolors with ocean water ... and getting a sun tan IN ICELAND!

Do you love to travel and paint?  Here is your chance!
