Grant work

I am in Florida for the month of January. Enjoying the warm weather, a break from the Minnesota winter. And I am writing grants while here which are both a challenge and a pleasure. A challenge because I struggle with words to describe my self and my work. A pleasure because when I have finally pushed that button to submit the grant, I know that I have grown a bit in the process of finding the right words to describe why I am painting abstractly to describe the every day scenes that are all around us.

Here is an older piece that I have always liked. Mostly because it came to its finish without any second and third thoughts.
