Northern Lights Dancing
Getting ready to hang in a special spot in the Gallery.
You know the one you thought no one would ever care about? The one you did and you said this one will probly get panned every time? Meet "Northern Lights Dancing".
I am so overwhelmed by the response this 36"x36" oil painting is getting. To me it certainly is special, I envision myself alone at night in the north somewhere enjoying this wonderful display of lights across the night sky. Do I think anyone else gets it? No. I mean, it's a dark painting.
Seems dark is cool huh? Or so you all keep telling me. Today again I had a visitor buying paintings who was just stopped in her tracks when she met up with it. Didn't have the heart to tell her it is not for sale but the news eventually broke when she asked the price.
At times like this it is always tempting to relent and give it up. Price keeps getting higher and higher and it doesn't seem to detour anyone. But then I tell them that I actually don't want to sell it. Hey, I'm not playing a game here, I really do want to keep it in my private collection. It's special. To me.
Seems it's special not only to me, but to most of you too.
You are all welcome to visit to see it in person. It's still not for sale but I am happy, even thrilled to show it. Just contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org when ever you like.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
