I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. I know I am thankful for so much, and YOU, my friend, are definitely on the list. Thank you for being a part of my artist journey! I appreciate you! 

I am pleased to have my art in several holiday shows this season. I've included several of the paintings currently available at the Center for Visual Arts in Wausau, WI. If you are in the Wausau area, stop in and take a look. They have wonderful gallery spaces and an amazing gallery gift shop. Or, if you prefer to armchair or cyber shop, give them a call and purchase over the phone. Rose, Krista, and the rest of the staff would love to help make your shopping an enjoyable experience.

Awarded 2nd Place in the WVAG Colorama show


As a member of the Wisconsin Visual Artist's Guild (WVAG), we have an annual fall exhibit titled, "Colorama." Our current show is up until next Tuesday, December 3rd, at the Reaching New Heights gallery inside Marshfield Clinic-Weston. It is always a bright, colorful, and inspiring show. The WVAG is a talented group! 



I'm excited to say that two of my pieces received awards in the show. If you are in the Wausau/Weston area, stop in and take a look. The show is on the first and second floors, and is open from 8 am - 5 pm. Artwork is for sale so if you are need of some beautiful, original Christmas gifts, this is a great place to shop. And it sure beats buying that big screen TV that will be outdated in a couple of years.

"Office View," original oil painting by Nancy Laliberte

includes display easel and free US shipping*

A few short weeks ago, fellow artist Theda Hewuse and I ventured up on Rib Mountain  with our plein-air gear to enjoy the beautiful fall day. The colors were just beautiful, and a painting was to be found no matter where you looked. This view is near the amphitheater overlooking part of Wausau. 

As I was painting this, I had an epiphany. You see, several years ago (in my previous life, as I like to say) I used to work as an art director/designer at an ad agency in Rib Mountain. I was fortunate enough to have an office on the west side of the building with a window view of Rib Mountain. Every fall there would be this amazing, golden glow of the maple trees outside my window. It was beautiful. I remember staring out the window, dreaming that someday I was going to be a painter, and I was going to paint those golden maple trees on Rib Mountain. Fast forward to October 2013. There I was, up on the mountain, painting those golden maple trees. Just like I had dreamed of doing.

Hanging on to the last remnants of the warmer days of fall with one more piece from my September Door County trip. This one is also from Cana Island. I loved the various golden colors surrounded by the muted blues and violets. This was painted later in the afternoon as the light was starting its magical transformation to the "Golden Hour."

What is it about the sound of water lapping at the shore? Or the many colors you see when you really take the time to look? Or the patterns of the water coming in and receding back? And then allowing it all to become etched in your soul, calming you, and taking you to another place. sigh. Feels good.
