A Foggy Day

A Foggy Day
My very first attempt at painting fog in plein air.  It was so much fun.  Initially I set up on the same side of the dock with my friends, only to be greeted by tiny little birds that didn't enjoy my company.  So hence, they won the battle and I moved to a location where my fellow artist could be included in my sketch.

In turned out, that the wee birds had their feeding station where my set up was located. Must confess that I have a phobia regarding the little feather creatures. I am getting better just being out there in their habitat.  Overcame my fear of geese, my daughter told me to pretend they are medium size dogs, so , geese, seagulls and swans are no longer on my phobia list.  Don't get me wrong, I appreciate their beauty, oh, yes, made friends  with a robin, who likes to keep me company while I paint in the yard.

Enough of my silliness, it was a great day painting fog.  Happy painting everyone.

At The Show

At the show
It was a wonderful show, beautiful location, very kind people and talented artist.  But the best surprise of all, was my blogger friend Hilda came.  I am only sorry we didn't take a picture together.  She is one lovely lady to come out even  though she is very busy with her family and her art..  Hilda, thank you.

Happy Painting everyone.  I am off to the Sayville Maritime Museum to paint the fog.

Oh, I sold, forgot to mention that, the economy is turning around.

Going Big

18x24 Acrylic on mdf  panel
After all the shopping on Mothers Day, I enjoyed using my 18x24 mdf panels.  Of course this is a larger painting of my new favorite place, Kings Park Bluff: We are returning there today.  I also started an 18x24 of  Sunken Meadow.  I will post that one later this week.

We have an art show on Saturday.  I will try to take some photos, locations will be at Art By The Falls, that is the Babylon Village Arts Council that will be putting on that show.  Hilda, if you are in the area it would be great to see  you.  I know you are busy, so don't worry if you can not stop by.

To to get ready to start my day, must find a way to lighten my load when painting outdoors. Happy Painting everyone.

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day

Wishing all the moms and grandmas out there a very wonderful day.   Today it will be a mad dash to AC Moore, they are having a 50% off sale.  Wanted to buy 18x24 canvas panels.  I enjoy working on panels rather than stretch canvas.  The mdf panels are great as well.  But for today, can't resist the sale at A C Moore.

Happy Painting everyone.
