THIRTY PAINTINGS IN THIRTY DAYS CHALLENGE:  January 2017
It's that time of year again, when I make myself crazy doing thirty paintings in thirty days! This year I am a little bit more prepared than usual. I've registered with Leslie Saeta's site at www.saetastudio.com. I bought all the canvasses, and have 10 primed and ready to go.  I've looked into how I will ship the sold paintings and how much it will cost. I've done about 10 value sketches, and taken quite a few photos.  This year my theme will be "BEACHY," since I've recently moved close to the ocean. I will create 30 original acrylic and/or collage paintings on 8" x 8" canvas boards. Each painting will be $99 plus shipping and/or taxes, if applicable. I will post a new painting each day on Leslie's site, plus on my Facebook page, and on this page of my website. If you would like to purchase one of the paintings, please text me at 612-961-7075 or private message me on Facebook, or leave a message here on the COMMENTS page.

THIRTY PAINTINGS IN THIRTY DAYS SUPER SALE:  January 2016

I will be doing the 30/30 Challenge a little bit differently this year.  Since Gallery G will soon be adding another artist (news to follow soon!) I need to reduce some of my inventory to make way new and exciting changes coming to the studio.  Here is the plan: I will post an existing painting at a drastically reduced price each day on Facebook - if we are not already FB friends, send me a friend request so you can see the daily post.  I will also post each day here on the website under PROJECTS. 

         On the first day a painting is posted it will be for sale at
40% off the already reduced studio price.
         On the second day after a painting is posted it will be for sale at
45% off the studio price.
         On the third day after a painting is posted it will be for sale for
50% off the studio price. 

If the painting has not sold after three days, it goes back into inventory or to a commercial gallery at the original price, so act fast if it's something you like.  Some paintings are framed, some not, and prices will reflect that.  Prices are subject to tax and shipping charges where applicable. I will not be participating in the regular 30/30 Challenge with California artist Leslie Saeta, but you can follow along with those who are at lesliesaeta.blogspot.com. TO PURCHASE A PAINTING:  Send me a message on this website from the COMMENTS page, OR email me at natmpc@yahoo.com, OR Message me on Facebook, OR call me at 612-961-7075.

 THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER PROJECT  In June of 2011, the Critical Thumb critique group (including Keith Donaldson, Andy Evansen, Karen Knutsen, MarySue Krueger, Judy Lieber, Dave Rickert,  Gail Speckman, Pat Undis, Dan Weimer and myself) exhibited a group show at Banfill Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley, MN.    Each of the ten "Thumbs" contributed five original paintings that depicted the Mississippi River.  I chose to paint five of the downtown Minneapolis bridges, pictured here:

           
Hennepin Avenue Bridge                 Third Avenue Bridge                    Stone Arch Bridge                        The New 35W Bridge

       These original paintings are each 12" x 24" watercolor and oil pastel on paper.  They are each 
Washington Avenue Bridge                mounted on a stretched canvas and finished with a coat of Dorland wax, so they require no glass
                                                           covering, and can be framed or left unframed.             



MASTER MANIPULATIONS 
  In March 2012 the Escape Artists (including Emily Donovan, Calvin deRuyter, Susan Fryer-Voigt, Emmy White, Pamela Weisdorf and myself) exhibited "Master Manipulations" at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hopkins, MN.  The group chose twelve famous historic paintings by past masters, and each of us did our own interpretation of that painting.  This educational and entertaining exhibit was very well recieved and will soon be exhibited at another site.   To see the full exhibit with all 72 paintings, go to www.escapeartists.weebly.com.
