NYMPH'S PRAYER AT WONDER LAKE - 20" X 10" Oil on Canvas. Finished it this morning. Have to let it dry. Will take another look to re-evaluate it in a week to see if I am still happy with it. I have had this painting in my head for over 2 years now. My daughter Christina suggested the flower pedals (thanks Christina), that was the perfect addition to the painting.
Nymphs, Nixies are spirits of Nature, they represent fertility. They also personify the dangerous undercurrents of the depths below.
You will need to visit Denali National Park in Alaska and take the all day bus ride to Wonder Lake, and just maybe you will be lucky enough to spy the Nymph of Wonder Lake.

Winters Kiss 9 x 6 Oil on Richeson Panel - Small little oil painting. I really had fun playing with purples, oranges and pinks in this painting. Captured the mood I was looking for...cold, isolation and a peaceful snug warm cabin in the wilderness. I will more then likely do a larger major painting of this in the future after the holiday shows are over.
