Northern Adventures!

A few highlights from my trip. Make sure to check out the cyclist with a dog stand. 

Every August I flee the Atlanta heat and head up north for weeks of painting and shows.

I start the month off in Provincetown, MA, with my dear friend Rosemarie. We met in a workshop several years back and now have a standing painting date for the week in P'town.  Even with the overcast days this year, the light and ocean were just wonderful. I look forward to this week all year!

After my show in CT and a few days at Rosemarie's house I head over to Pennsylvania for a show and a visit with one of my favorite couples, Art and Margaret Thorn.  They are generous enough to put me up for a few days during the show. It's just so much fun hanging out and hearing about how their year has been.

Fortunately the shows were good this year. I sold several big paintings and even won an award this year at Gretna. While that is always great, what makes this trip so special is the time I get to spend with friends.

Until next year!!

Painting Day 25 - Still in Sunny Florida

It warmed up for a both this afternoon, which was delightful! Can't say the same about my paintings. I had a few slow starts and I just wasn't happy with the color, composition, yada, yada, yada!!! So here is what I could come up with before the sun went down!  12x16 oil on panel.

This is the last day of the painting trip. I had a great time and only wish the weather had been a little better. Goodbye to all my painting friends, until next year!
