And the Winner Is !!!

"Winter Sunrise"
6 X 16

This is the view I had from my kitchen window yesterday morning.  It was really beautiful!  I used it to enter the latest challenge over at Calypso Moon Artist Movement.  I had been driving around for a couple weeks looking for a good winter landscape to paint.  Didn't realize it was in my own back yard!

O.K.  It is time to announce the winner of the drawing for the quilted wall hanging.  Drum roll please...................................................................................

Congratulations to Nancie Johnson!!!  I will send Nancie an e-mail so I can get an address to send the quilt to.

Happy Valentines Day to Everyone!



  1. Ah yes...the beautiful IL prairies. Beautiful, Karla! For some reason, I think there was a teacher in my high school with your same last name.

  2. Thanks AutumnLeaves! Yes, there is beauty just about anywhere we look. We don't have to go to the mountains or the sea to see it.

    My son taught high school up in your area for a couple years before he died. Gabe Uphoff. Other than that I'm not aware of any other teachers. But I don't know all of the Uphoff's.

  3. Isn't it amazing sometimes, we can drive all over looking for the scene to paint, and it's right there under our nose all along! What a wonderful view you have from your kitchen window!

    And the quilt - OMG! Oh wow! I'm a little excited -- no, I'm thrilled!!!

  4. Thanks for following me.

  5. Your colors are beautiful. What a lovely view to have from your kitchen. I can just imagine sitting there in the pre-dawn hour, maybe with a cup of coffee.

  6. It was beautiful Barbara! Mornings with my coffee is one of my favorite times of day.
