Blue Ridge Parkway III, VA

I painted on the Blue Ridge Parkway last week and had a great time, I went back a second time to finish it up. I like lining up the painting with the mountains . . . the proportions are never the same in a photograph as when you are outside with the view. The first day the sky was brighter, so I stuck to that. Will take this to Wintergreen for the Labor Day Show, 24" x 48" oil on canvas, framed, $1,250  SOLD

Here are three of us (plus the owner, Patti) on Saturday night, as you can tell, we ate really well! Thanks ladies for coming out and having fun!

Fog & Rain, Adirondacks

We all went out to paint in the rain while at Paul Smith College, it was fun and challenging . . . 100 wet painters. Some more prepared than others, I fared pretty well, but next time I will take a longer thicker rain coat! I felt this painting was a bit of a break through, and enjoy remembering that day painting with the mist.   9" x 12" oil on board, framed NFS.
