Art A Whirl at Northrup King Building and Art Market at the State Fair have come and gone.  It was a happy time and especially wonderful to see people and talk.  Now it is getting warm out and time for painting "plein-air".  I can't wait.  It is a total challenge and my goal is to simply simplify.  In other words see shapes and try to leave out the details.  OK then.  Another biggie for me is that the Ramsey County Library in Shoreview bought four of my paintings for their new library children's section.  It is very exciting indeed.  Take care all and have a good summer.
