Plein air, Stony Brook

8x10 oil on panel.

I did this sketch last summer. We met in Stony Brook. This was done in1/2hr. A fellow artist told me to stop, it was done. I don't understand. Well anyway, I stopped and never touched it again. It is what it is, just an impression. Happy Painting everyone.

The Other Side of the Field

5x7 oil sketch. This was the other side of the field. It is a very scenic site and I would love to do larger paintings. In the meantime, these are just little sketches.

Another beginning

Fighting off an artist block. I spent the whole morning painting flowers on this 16x20 canvas panel.

No matter what I did, just couldn't make it happen. That's when it was apparent, just not in the mood to paint flowers.

Now this is no way the final painting, but I do like the subject. My grandson had his little league baseball game last night and this was the scene on the opposite side of the field.

I know the reflections aren't quite done as well as the swan. It's just important to keep this journal going. Happy painting everyone.

Almost finished

8x10 Golden open acrylic on canvas panel.

This is becoming a little overdone. I may add just a little bit more detail, but for the most part it is finished.

Happy painting everyone.

New Beginning

I started this 8x10 acrylic on canvas panel today. I used the Golden Open acrylic. Working from photo's of last spring. I can't wait for the flowers to bloom again.

I will finish this tomorrow. I still prefer oils.

Brookhaven plein air sketches

Today was such a delightful day. Temps in the upper 60's. Our plein air location was wonderful. I did these little 5x7's in oil. No way are they completed, so I am just simply posting where I was and what we were painting.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to develop these paintings. I did take photos. We are planning to go back to this same location next week. Happy painting everyone.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter and Happy Holiday to all.

This is another 2x5 by 3x5 mini. I painted this from a photo taken at Cape Cod while vacationing with my son and his family.

I did this same scene on a 18x24 canvas. After receiving Gallery Choice Award it is now hanging in my sons home.

Mini acrylic painting

2.5 x 3.5 acrylic on Artist trading card. I'm having problems photographing this little mini. The color is too blue and it actually looks better than the photo.
