Helloooooooo out there...
Its been tough getting out lately, but I have managed

the afternoon between the downpours.
How about you....?

"The House on the Beach" (Ocean Boulevard) oils 12 x 16

Today I re-sized the house THREE times on my canvas before I was happy with the composition. Fortunately, I used charcoal and could wipe the image with a paper towel each time. I had it much bigger but it seemed to be in my face, so I gradually got it down to what it appears now.
My thanks to Richard Schmid for showing me the way in his "Alla Prima" book. I have read it many times over and still I'm finding something new ...

October Morning-Beacon Hill

Oil on wood panel 6x8.
I'm thinking of getting out this afternoon.
The way the wind seems to be picking up it may
need to be some where protected.
Email me if you are interested.

Impromptu decision to go out painting?

If you feel like painting out today or perhaps some time this week, choose a day and a location - post it on this blog and see if your fellow artists wish to join you en plein air.

"Sunflower" oil on canvas

Jenn painted this wonderfully sunlit sunflower - most artists would paint the sunflower "face on" but she chose to capture it's side.
