Waiting for snow


These are watercolor studies. I usually post my watercolor on my wc blog. But I have not been able to get to my oils.

Now the Thanksgiving feast is over and Christmas is on its way it was just a day to play with some winter scenes.

Happy painting everyone.

Fall, My Favorite Time of the Year


Can you believe we are in November, and this Thursday is a day to give thanks. For my family it's the new addition of a grandson. The success of his hernia surgery. Actually I could go on and on, but I wont.

I do however want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

The Arboretum in Fall


This is my 5x7 acrylic on canvas board. I just completed this one. I started it yesterday. The one below is were I left off.

Sometimes it is best to leave things alone. I will give this one another try some other time.

Of course it doesn't matter what the outcome, it's the process that is important. There is always something learned from each day we paint.

Happy painting everyone and have a great weekend.

Stonybrook Harbor Acrylic


I have posted several of my Stonybrook harbor paintings.

The first one being a work in progress. I have started in acrylic, using and under painting of red oxide. Using layers of glazes. It is no where near completion. Lots of fun.

The second was completed 16x20 oil on canvas panel.

The 5x7 was an actual oil study done on location.
As you can see I have this love of Stonybrook harbor.
Happy Painting everyone.

Longwood Estate

This is an 8x10 oil on canvas covered board. It was started on location and finished from my watercolor sketch and photo.

I am trying to break away from using my photos when I paint plein air. I love the work Bruce Sherman does either on location or in the studio. He often describes his process, which is wonderful.

I also find Vic Errington blog very inspiration, both are very fine artist

My One Dollar Brush


Went to Home Depot to buy tape. Found a bin of bristle brushes. I bought a 1" bristle brush for $1. what a great find.

I usually don't paint at night. But just had to play with my new brush. Tomorrow it is back to Home Depot.

Happy Painting Everyone!
