Happy February - the winter is passing - yeah! Meanwhile, I am happy to be inside a warm and cozy studio painting! Almost finished is a painting that I have been wanting to do for some time - It is the companion piece to "Big Plans" - which features a little boy and his calf. This painting is of a girl and her calf. I have a little tweaking to do before it is "officially" finished, so watch for its arrival in the next few months. Plans are to be on press with this new image by Spring and that it will be available as notecards, prints, and canvas giclees! I don't have a title quite yet, but this piece is symbolic of every little girl who has worked with a show calf, the precious bond they develop, and the pride and responsibility that dwell in this relationship - it takes me back in time to my own childhood!
Also, we are in the works of publishing our first newsletter of 2013, "Artful moments & Mohr." We are going to be sending out e-newsletters each month that will include a "Special of the Month," featured art, and some of my favorite recipes! It's another feature of our "new look" we've been working on at the studio. I can't wait to share it!
