Green Frog
Emily Holland

Emily has only just recently started painting and like her sculptures, she started painting very small and worked her way up to larger paintings as her confidence grew. Her first landscapes were snow scenes painted on pennies. They are just too small to photograph for this blog without a macro lens.

These moths were painted after a visit to our friend's ranch in Montana last summer.

This little oil painting of a gorge is from the same Montana trip. I love how she captured the play of light on the rocks.

As you can see, Emily's got quite a head start with her art and it will be exciting to watch her grow and develop over the years. One can only imagine what her work will look like in twenty years. She's definitely giving her old man a run for the money!
