Foggy Light Maine

12 x 24 oil on canvas
I love the light when it's foggy in the distance and hard to see the demarkation of the sea and sky but there are still lights on the boats and buildings

Fisherman and Swimming Hole

 It's been a difficult painting time...just not inspired.  Swimming Hole, 16 x 20 has issues...perhaps too many heroes.  I started on white rather than a toned canvas and I think that was a mistake.  I kept working it but finally have left it this way.  Fisherman is 9 x 12 and I toned the canvas and had fun with it....remembering fun!

Off to Saranac Lake to teach a two day workshop  as an intro to the Adirondack Plein Air Festival (I am juror of awards).  Still some space left in the workshop...should be a challenging week.

Come paint Croatia with me!

There are still some spots open for my Croatia workshop Oct 4 to 13.  We paint the gorgeous island of Korcula.  I got great tickets to Dubrovnik for less than $800!  Here is the link to the organization and you can read about what makes it so great to come.

First plein air Swans Island

Well, it was sunny this morning...first day at Swans Island in Maine.  Went out to paint early...which was fun, and all...but frankly, being buzzed by bees and horseflies takes a bit of the joy out of plein air painting
