It's good to be back Plein air painting


I get so caught up in my studio I tend to forget just how much I enjoy plein air painting. You just can't get the same information or authenticity from a photo.  The above 8x16 was painted on site from my trunk ( I forgot my tripod to put my pochade box on so I set it in the back of my car and used the back hatch like an umbrella. Worked out perfectly. Thanks to the Cape Cod Art Association, for getting my butt back out there.

Perfect day for finishing up paintings


Oil on clear gessoed linen 16x20
Last month I attended a wedding at the Providence library. The venue itself was beautiful as were the flowers. I was fortunate enough to go home with a centerpiece that I painted the following day. With the use of a few photos, I finished up some small details yesterday.

Alcohol (Inks that is) with the Braintree Girls

This weekend we celebrated another "Girls" xmas party. As we've got older, the alcohol now comes in the form of art supplies. Alcohol inks that is.  Check out the fabulous paintings below.  Just goes to prove there is an artist in all of us.
