Three unrelated things

Here is something old.  I found it in the sauna the other day.

It is called "Copper Moon."  I brought it to work and Derek said, "That's ... interesting."  Hmmm.  Not to give away any trade secrets, but around here that's code for "ew."  No matter.  I like it.  It needs a shiny black frame.  As a side note, I have a painting very similar to this in an old sketch book.

Here is something brand new.  Another purple tree.

These shiny buggers are really hard to photograph.  I think I am going to take four tree paintings to Lee for pre-press work.  By the way, he said no problem with photographing several together, as long as the color palette is similar.  I'm thinking these four:

Maybe.  The one on the right is an approximation - the painting I would use is here but I haven't photographed it.  Stay tuned for further developments, but don't hold your breath.

And thirdly, I got a message from someone through Etsy the other day.  She asked if I would be willing to donate a painting for the Take Back the Night fundraiser in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  This is the painting she liked:

I am going to paint a new one, and then let her pick.  I have no connection to Ann Arbor, but was honored to have been asked.  It is a very worthy cause, and maybe I will get a little bit of exposure.  We shall see.
