I am excited to share that three of my floral paintings have been juried into the 2016 "Winter's Garden" exhibit at the Riverfront Arts Center in Stevens Point, WI. Tonight is the opening reception from 5 - 7 at the gallery located at 1200 Crosby Avenue. In addition to beautiful, garden-inspired art, live plants are on display and available for purchase. As soon as you step inside, you feel as though you are in an indoor botanical garden. It is a wonderful, welcomed respite from the cold. The show runs through February 21st.

Tomorrow evening from 5 - 7 pm is the opening reception for the 26th Annual Midwest Seasons show at the Center for the Visual Arts in downtown Wausau, WI. How exciting that there will be "Blues 'n Jazz" there! The visual version ;-) as in my oil painting, "Blues 'n Jazz." This piece was painted from life using blue hydrangeas from my garden. It was featured in a post here. Midwest Seasons is a nationally juried, themed exhibit showcasing top-notch 2-d and 3-d work. I am thrilled to be included this year, and in the company of many of my talented art friends. The awards ceremony is at 6 pm. Come by to see some amazing art, enjoy food and refreshments, and visit with the artists.

Also happening tomorrow evening in the Loft Gallery of the CVA is the opening reception of the annual Memorial Show of the Wisconsin Valley Art Association. 

Thank you for being a part of my artist's journey, and supporting me doing the work I love. :-)

"Lucky in Love" original acrylic painting by artist Nancy Laliberte

36" x 24" acrylic on canvas
private collection

I have had the privilege of creating some very special commissioned paintings recently, and "Lucky in Love" is one of them. This piece was a wedding gift commissioned by the parents of a bride, and based on a mother/daughter trip to Ireland. It was a delightful project because it has many of my favorite elements - flowers, landscape, sky, greens! The family was a joy to work with, too, so that made it especially fun. Keep following along, as I share more painting commissions, along with the approach I take to help make it a successful experience for everyone involved. 

For more paintings, be sure to visit my online gallery at

As always, THANK YOU for being a part of my artist journey. I love what I do and enjoy sharing it with all of you. :-)
