available at the Riverfront Arts Center
Stevens Point, WI

A colorful and impressionistic painting of one of my favorite subjects:  the water lily.  Full of soothing greens and vibrant pinks and yellows, the possibilities to painting water lilies are endless. 

Art galleries are my favorite place to find unique gifts. This piece is part of the Fine Art Gift Gallery show at the Riverfront Arts Center in Stevens Point, WI. They are open all weekend long for your shopping convenience. Give them a call or stop in if you're in the area. They have a variety of beautiful artwork made by local and regional artists.

Give yourself the gift of a "Creative Time Out" in 2014 with a class or workshop

"Here Comes the Sun" original oil painting by artist Nancy Laliberte

8" x 6" oil on panel
Wisconsin Rapids, WI

Apparently I am in denial that it is winter as I keep painting flowers and other warm weather favorites. So I say embrace that, and just go with it. Chances are, I am not alone in my thinking.

This painting is a part of the "Holiday Extravaganza" show opening today at the Central Wisconsin Cultural Center in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. It is a wonderful and spacious gallery space. If you are in the Wisconsin Rapids area be sure to stop in and enjoy the art. You may just find the perfect gift for someone (or yourself) on your Christmas list.

Give yourself a Creative Time Out this Saturday, December 14, and join me for "Playing with Paint" from 10 am - 12:30 pm. Our "playground" will be the Hobby Lobby classroom located at the back of the store, 3525 Rib Mountain Dr. Cost is $35 and includes painting supplies to use during the session. All you need is an 11 x 14 canvas (which you can purchase in the store, or bring one of your own), and the willingness to have some fun. Wear some painting clothes, too, in case you tend to be a bit messy (like me). 

We will be using Van Gogh's Starry Night painting as inspiration to create our own starry, winter scene. I will lead you along in a fun, no-fear, let's just play with the paint and see what happens approach. In the end, you will have an amazing painting and the satisfaction of knowing that you did it! 

As my way of saying Thank You for a great year of Playing with Paint, there will be complimentary apple cider from DanCin' Hills Farm of Hamburg, and frosted, cut-out cookies made from my late Granny O'Gara's recipe. YUM!!! 

Check out the Playing with Paint albums on the studio FB page. Hitting the "Like" button while you are there would be awesome, too. Thanks!
