Testing my key board

Port
Jefferson

I am checking my keyboard for spelling errors.  Not the best at spelling.  Noticed this is not correcting mistakes.

I will  continue to try this app and see if it works.  I will  misspell some words. It does not highlight the words.  I will find another app. for my .samsung. I am now trying the Google keyboard app and it is pretty good.

Flowers and Pears

6x8 Oil on canvas panel

Went to Trader Joe's last week and purchased white Roses.  Did this little still life after making a batch of home made gesso.
Love the way the paint adheres to the canvas with homemade gesso . Also learned how to make homemade texture pasted.

plein air  town of Bayshore

Adding more , people and cars, still very abstract

Learning to paint on location and also working at home from my sketches and photos.  I much rather be out and about. Happy painting everyone.

Painting the town

Bayshore street scene plein air

Went out and met with friends in the town of Bayshore . I have been wanting to paint a street scene on location
It is so difficult.  But it's time to challenge myself and step out of my comfort zone.  Happy painting everyone.
