Almost a year to the day that I last blogged about this painting, I find myself finishing it up and blogging about it again!  For those of you that have followed me for the last year, here are the finishing stages to “Heading Home.”

I will be exhibiting this painting, “Winterberry Perch” and a “Touch of Fall” necklace at the Nature Artists’ Guild Show at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL on Nov. 9-11.  There is an artists’ reception Friday from 5-9pm and the exhibit runs from 11-4pm on Nov. 10-11.  Hope to see you there!
