In Jacksonville

 Painting from afar using photos rather than models and VERY minimal supplies.  Good to see I can "travel light." For me, one of the beauties of art and painting is the total demands my utmost least for a time...I get to choose my focus.....

Catching Up

 Have not posted in a bit...had a long road trip in Colorado....hoping to find a cool place in way!
Was glad to get back home to paint but sad to learn our model group had to relocate.  Hope we find a permanent home again....

Figurative Artists Atelier at Foster Gallery

  So enjoyed returning to model group after our 5 weeks in Europe.  Norah was our wonderful model....always fun to paint her.

Two Pastels

 I completed these two pastel paintings just before we departed for a long trip in late May to Switzerland, Germany and Budapest.  We had a great time and went to so many museums, galleries, castles, .....totally inspiring.  Took hundreds of photos but took no time to paint...maybe some studio time is in order!

I did these watercolors over the past few weeks and really enjoyed them as a change from oil and pastel.  There is always so much to learn by switching mediums and each has their own special pleasure.

Mari, George, and Norah are my models here and the goal was to create a more "finished" wc painting rather than just a sketch

Green Wave

I really enjoyed. doing a studio painting using recent photo references.  I may do more as they are very relaxing.   Oil on Canvas 24 x 24
