Breaks Over, What's Next

Plein air painting at Short Beach in St. James.  Getting to use my new EasyL pochade box.  


Plein air painting a a local pumpkin patch in East Islip, Using my new Guerrilla French Resistance pochade.
Received an Honorable  Mention award at the Arboretum art show. 
a lovely surprise.
Plein air 9x12 oil sketch at Short Beach.
So, now that I have shared some of the things I have been doing on my break, it is time to visit with all of you.  I have noticed that everyone is still busy painting and posting.  I must admit that I also have been painting and posting on FaceBook.  Just to share with all of you, that it is wonderful to see all of the brilliant artist work that post on fb   I do hope to see some of you adding this to your art networking and share your work as well.

All the best to you my blogger friends.
Happy Painting.

It feels great to be blogging again, I am taking your lead Vic, and posting my replies rather than leaving them until it takes forever to catch up. It will give me more time to visit, especially your blog .

  6. Hi Joan!... Congrats on the award! Much deserved! Your Shoreline piece is crisp... painterly and "real."

    That pochade box box is a great set up and will make plein air more enjoyable for certain! Get "out there!"

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    1. Hi Bruce,

      Thank you for the encouragement. Trying to feel more comfortable when plein air painting, not so overwhelmed by what is before me, getting used to it and enjoying.

      Love my new pochade box.

      All the best to you,
      Joan

  8. I really like that painting of Short Beach Joan and congratulations on your award. I'm not much of a FB fan. With my own made-from-the-ground-up website, including an art forum, and blogging, if I took on any more I'd never get any painting done. lol.

    1. Hi John,

      Just returned from your blog. John I had no idea about all that you are doing. It's brilliant, all of it, just shared the info with my cousin Sue. Love the art forum and will sign in as soon as I can. Keep up with your art, because I am always so very impressed with your talent and you are truly an inspiration to me. Well done John.

      All the best to you,
      Joan
