Driftless Area Landscape Paintings

I told them I would paint two for their Spring Green Area Artist Coalition fund raiser.
It's a lottery.
$30.00 gives you a certificate, 
which when picked, allows you to have your pick of ALL the 8"x8" canvases 
created by local area artists. 
I keep reminding myself that offering these is a good thing, for me.  
It does get the babies out and visible, 
since they are seen by no one on my walls, 
except during the Fall Art Tour. 
I don't have a gallery.
SO, this is a good thing.....
I do wish I would be able to make the frames for them....
which might make this giving them away easier. 
I do make good frames.

County Fair paintings-the Pigs

 It's only a cell phone picture, but you can sort of get the idea. 
Below you can see the frame I'm making for it.
That's "Iowa" in the top frame.
Below is "The Pigs".
I don't have a photo of it in it's frame yet.
I do have prints of "The Pigs"..

When it's really dry and varnished,
I'll get it photographed properly.

on linen, on board)

"Chaos Mountain", oil painting by Linda Kelen

This 8" x 8" oil painting
will be among many other canvases
from which you will be able to select one for yourself,
Oil on canvas, entitled "Chaos Mountain".
Intended to be given away to this fun raising event in 2015, 
but I was not ready to part with it then. 
I actually painted two of them. 
This was the second painting, and actually the better painting.
The first one, for me, is the real place.

"Serpent's Tail" oil painting

REPLACING "Serpents Tail
in the Spring Green Area Arts Coalition fund raiser will be:
This 8" x 8" oil painting,
by Linda Kelen, 
will be among many other canvases 
from which you will be able to select one for yourself, 
for a mere $30.00. 

Originally, I was going to offer the "Serpent's Tail", below,
but decided "Chaos Mountain" was more appropriate for this time.
