GRIZZLIES AND GLACIERS by Linda Hendrickson
24 x 30" gallery wrapped
Though the glaciers are shrinking, there are still heavenly spots where you can take in several glaciers from the road, unless you happen to be sharing the turn out with a four legged family of this sort. Salamander, Gem and Grinnell Glaciers in Glacier National Park.
DAILY BREAD (Le Diplomate) by Susan La Mont
20 x 24" oil on gessoboard
We have friends who used to live a literal stone’s throw from this bustling, noisy, and popular restaurant in the District, so whenever we visited them it would ultimately include a visit to Le Diplomate. I liked this scene of the bread station at brunch time, with light flooding the interior.
DO FISH WHISTLE? by Debra Keirce
5 x 5" oil on panel
When we visit our sons, I love to take time to sit and watch their fish tanks. I find myself personifying the fish. I mean, I know they are just fish, and likely only worry about survival. But they start to have personalities after awhile. At least, I let myself think they do. I always imagine this fish whistling his way around the tank, as life is just one long leisurely stroll.
Do fish whistle? Can fish whistle? I know there is no air underwater. But, I wonder if they swish water in and out of their mouths in a way that is soothing, and maybe even audible. I guess I'll never know, but these are the things I think about.

PIECE OF PARADISE by Jill Banks
20 x 16" oil on linen lined panel
Painted plein air at the Southernmost Beach Resort pool in Key West - Day 10 in the 31-day January 2023 painting challenge. I'd been eyeing this scene as a great potential painting spot -- because of those gorgeous blues and the cabana in the background. Love the way it turned out -- and loved being there to capture this piece of Paradise.
THE FOUNTAIN AT CITY HALL by Vicki Blum
12 x 16" oil on panel
This was painted en plein air at City Hall in Frederick, MD. I was a guest of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters. It was such a peaceful place to paint on a sunny Sunday afternoon with a warm breeze.
WARM SUNLIGHT FLOWING LIKE A STREAM INTO THE COOL MORNING AIR by Tricia Cherrington Ratliff
14 x 11" oil on panel
One of my dream scapes. It started out with a real place but I used this scene to capture the feeling of one of my dream moments. I love to wake up early and here I'm imagining standing in the crisp cool breeze of the stream as the fresh, warm morning sunlight is carried along with the water. Growing up in a mountainous area with plenty of natural streams, this experience of seeing the sunlight peek into the woods was among my favorite type of view. It feels like nature's window. This painting is not yet framed because it's still wet but looks fantastic in gold.
