Sweet Briar, Plein Air WIP

Sweet Biar Nature  Farm
Plein Air
Yesterday's plein air is just what was needed to wash the blues away.  My daughter and her family returned home on Sunday.  After being with them this past weekend it takes awhile to get back on course.

So yesterday was wonderful.  We went to Briar Farms and I painted part of this lovely house.  It needs to be completed in the studio. I have so many photos of the gardens and gazebo and bird houses, can't wait to start.  Happy Painting everyone.

Rainy Day

Stony Brook 
Today was not a good day for plein air painting.  So I did this 8x10 oil on canvas panel.  It is from a photo taken last summer at Stony Brook.
Happy Painting Everyone.

Arboretum River Walk

Arboretum River Walk 
By the River
On Tuesday evening I had the pleasure to see Paul Bachem demo at the Suburban Art League.  I have been a long time admirer of Paul's landscape paintings.  He is a well know artist ,who lives on Long Island. He initially started as an illustrator and is probably know for his book cover of the Godfather and many others.  Well long story short, Paul  has been a landscape artist and paints plein air. We are fortunate to have him here on Long Island.
So I finally got to see him in person and see his process and approach of a landscape.  It was inspiring and the very next day my friend and I painted at the arboretum.
Happy Painting Everyone.
