AIS Show

AIS Show
  Thank you to AIS Pres- Debra Joy Groesser,
the AIS V.P.- Cheryl St. John.
and especially the show chair  Becky Joy
for hosting a fantastic show.

They had arranged a demo by Clayton Beck,
workshops, paint outs, museum tours, 
presentations on materials and marketing
and a great opening.

There were so many wonderful paintings there
that I couldn't even pick a favorite to vote for in the
peoples choice award.

 I met so many
artists and hopefully made some new friends along the way.
My experience couldn't have been any better.
Plus red dots are always exciting!

Old Friends

Old Friends  6x6 oil on museum board

I just loved the gesture of this old woman walking and 
her dedication to come and feed the birds
They seemed like old friends and
really kept each other going.
That's what friends do:)

I do love the juicy paint in this one and would like
to try it larger and see if I can keep
the same paint quality.

I'll keep you posted.
Thanks so much for following along and 
letting me share my art/life with you.

Show Time

Show Time:)

Time to ship Porch Swing off to Abend gallery
for the AIS show.
You can click here to see a list of the exhibiting artists or
visit the American Impressionist Society website.

While in Europe I didn't have access to these great shipping boxes.
Shipping overseas made them super expensive so I 
always made my own.
One of the many reasons I love being back in the states!

It was really easy to pack and cut out the center foam panel
to give the painting a soft comfy place to snuggle in 
for the ride.

Friends tell me these boxes really hold up well and if you have
any comments about this, I'd love to hear them.

Thank you for following along and viewing my paintings.

Three Wheel Drive

Three Wheel Drive 9x12 oil on board

I ran across this old tractor while I was out painting recently.
It immediately inspired me and brought up fond

I spent part of my
childhood on a farm, way back when, and this looked
just like the tractor I used to drive when I was a kid,
(and way too young to drive). 
I remember I had to stand up to reach all the pedals
and the gear shift.
It was so much fun and I felt soooo grown up!

Thanks so much or letting me share my artwork with you.
Your comments are welcomed and appreciated:)

Flower Festival

Flower Festival  9x12 oil on board

I did this plein air painting in France last spring when I took
a workshop with Ovanes Berberian,
a true master painter and student of

There were only four of us in the workshop
which was great!  Very unlike the large groups
he has in the states. It was wonderful to get so much
personal direction from a master's perspective.

The best thing about a workshop IMHO is
to be able to focus on painting and not worry about
anything else.
With so much going on about my house I really
relish these memories of the moody French
countryside and just painting, painting, painting!

Thank you for viewing my artwork, your
comments are encouraged and appreciated!
