Today Efforts - Headed to the Park

I went back around the corner today to see if I could finish this one.  Right at 4:00 the light hits the buildings just right. Now if only these people would hold still!!

9 x 12 "Headed to the Park"  oil on panel, plein air

Here's my start. Too bad I couldn't get that tandem bike in there. Such an unwilling model . : )

Despite the rain - it was a great plein air event!








The Stone Mountain Plein Air Event was a success. Over 50 artists turned out to compete on this rainy day. I admit, I really struggled trying to capture the grays. What a challenge, it really shows me this is an area I really need to work on. Well, after struggling all day a rushing backt o the art center - with only 2 minuets to spare, I was happy to be awarded 2nd place and a purchase award! My painting is now in the permanent collection of the Art Station!

 Above is a photo of me with my painting, " A Day in the Park" 12 x 16 and my two awards. What wonderful conclusion to a rainy day.

My inspiration for the paint out. It was so rainy, I had to find a covered spot to paint from.

Summer travels and fall shows

My painting has taken a new direction this year and I'm happy to say, it was well received at my art shows. Above are a few of my favorites that found new homes. It's always a rewarding experience, but these, I'll miss. Time to get back in the studio!

SUMMER ON THE ROAD -  

 after spending 

much of the summer traveling, it's great to get back home and regroup. I had a wonderful time painting, learning,  making new friends and catching up with friends I only see once a year. I hit the upper Adirondacks in June and then Mystic CT, Mount Gretna PA, then on to Cary NC - and can you believe the weather was perfect?

Painting Away in the Adirondacks!

 Painting the week away with friends in the upper Adirondacks! What a way to spend the week!  For a week in June a group of about 100 artists arrive at Paul Smith College in upstate New York for a week of plein air painting and fellowship.

These are a few painting I worked on during the week along with one someone painted of me while out in the field. This is my second year going to the Adirondack Plein Air Invitational. I love having a week with no distractions,  just paint all day. A great way to make improvements in your work and catch up with friends.
