    Yeah, thanks Boiling Point! Yes, she still paints a lot. She keeps her site updated pretty good. Nicki's Gallery

    She turns 18 this summer and starts university in Sept.

    This one,

    is one of my fav's and I keep telling her it is half mine. I drove her to that spot, in the rain (she had been waiting for the right rainy day for it) so that she could take a photo, and then she did the painting. She did the slightly more difficult half.

    On her site, the list of paintings etc on the left scrolls down, I find the scroll bar hard to see, but, hey, have you ever tried to tell a 17 year old anything?? LOL

    Very seriously. That looks like it came out of the Atchafalaya river basin near Lafayette, La.

    That kind of talent is rare Don, nurture it, and encourage it. I hope she is studying art at university.

    I take it Mooney's Bay is somewhere around Ottawa? I really like the pencil work. The oil is nice too. Actually, I liked them all!

    Yes, Mooney's Bay is close to where we live. Her newest one isn't up there but it is pretty eye-catching. It is just a still life of some fruit or something but she used a new technique (new to her) called "glazing" and the picture looks very deep, 3-D. I am surprised it is not up on her site yet.
