We had an interesting time at Round Island today, after I painted this painting, artist Glenn Brill gave an interesting presentation on Gamblin paints and mediums. The painting has Gamblin radiant blue in the sky and cobalt teal in the ocean. The painting is 8 x 10, oil, painting knife painted with lots of texture.

I have been terrible about posting. I apologise. In the summer I stay in my studio, working on research and writing. I am writing a book about plein air painting this summer. This painting was one of the recent paint out paintings done in Evinston.

Here's a shot of the booth showing some plein air paintings exhibited at the Arts Festival on Friday and Saturday.
The little red painting sold. The traffic was scarce both days. The forefront painting was done on location in Royer, France in acrylics. I just love that frame.

I promise that I have been painting. These were done earlier this month. Right now they're in drying racks waiting to be photographed and posted. I hope to post each one separately very soon.

12 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas
ready to frame
This is older painting that I did on location a few years ago, before I started posting on line. I was really into thin layers of paint, then sealing them with a varnish. When all the craze came out with the watercolor canvases I moved on to something else.
I was in Fort Pierce with Lori McNamara. It actually started raining off and on. I loved the effect it created in the background, so as it dried I added the thicker layers of foliage over the top.
Thanks for looking!

This vignette was trying to capture the Mountain Laurel in bloom --
It was pretty tough hauling both my mother's and my painting gear 1.5 miles through the rocky, hilly terrain to reach the ruins but it was a wonderful day.

Today was windy at Red Clay State Park. I had to tape my canvas to the easel so it didn't fly away! This painting isn't quite finished yet - needs some tweaking here and there. The painting on my easel is standing in the shade, so it appears darker than the trees. The subject is the eternal flame located on a knoll overlooking the council house. I may return in a few days, painting in hand, to finish.
Red Clay is a wonderful place to visit. It's quiet - a great place to get away from the rest of the world.
Hi everybody! I finally went out to paint today in a beautiful little creek. I managed to get this one finished and that was it. Everyone' paintings are so beautiful. What a talented bunch of artists! Happy May Day! 12x16 oil ©2008 Not for Sale (I'm saving this one for a local show in the fall).
