Atmosphere at the bluff

18x24 oil on board

Another recent painting I worked on this past month.  I love doing atmospheric paintings. This was done in the studio. Not posting on my blog has been something that I am trying to change.  Today I will get to see my good friend Hilda.  We are picking up our work from the Conklin House.  It is a yearly event we both take part in and we enjoy seeing one another. I will try to visit most of you, there has been so  many blogs that I look forward seeing. 

Sunday Morning post

Well once again I find myself painting without my painting friends.  Life is funny in a way, it is constantly changing.  My painting pals had some health issues or just would rather paint in the studio.  So it is Mike, Monet and me.  I thank God they are with me.  Happy painting everyone.  I am off to the 8am mass this morning. Enjoy you Sunday.

Golden Marsh

Golden Marsh

 Painted this on location but had to finish in the studio.  Trying to post from my tablet.  All these devices I have are driving me crazy.  I should just stick to painting. 
Happy Painting  everyone.

Started the Dahlia's but didn't finish

Did the study, 8x10 acrylic on canvas panel

Sometimes if feels that I haven't worked on my art enough. The days go by so quickly and I really hate
wasting the beautiful days we've been blessed with recently.  That is why it helps to post on either face book  or my blog.
It's nothing more than an art diary.  But gotta, face book is getting too many post on politics.  Enough is enough.

So now I think maybe blogging and instagram my be better. So fellow artist, these photos are just my way of recording how I  spent the last few weeks of August.  I do hope all of you are enjoying your days as well.  Happy Painty everyone
