Northern Lights

I remember seeing the dancing northern lights fairly often as a child growing up in North Dakota, but viewing them as an adult in Idaho hasn’t happened as frequently.  The times when we stood outside in the back yard to view the Idaho version of the auroras really stand out in my memory. Shivering, but too fascinated by the glorious colors to go into the warm house…feeling every bit as much amazement as I did when I was a kid. That feeling had to go onto canvas!

    Theresa, I love your paintings, The Northern Light I had not seen and I like that very much.
    I’m SO proud of you.

      Thank you so much, Grandma! Your compliments mean the world to me. I’ve been showing you my art work since the days when you would hang my pictures on your fridge with ABC magnets! 🙂 Some things will never change! Thank you for being such an inspiration. <3 <3 <3

  2. This is every bit as colorful and awesome as Nature painted for us in N.Dak, Theresa. I don’t remember seeing this one before; is it new?

      Not new at all! It just got tucked away in a box when we moved and I forgot about it for a few years! It was fun to find it. Thank you… Glad you like it! <3
