It's Not Easy Being Plein 1





I have begun doing a series of plein air painters at their easels. I feel I was loose and expressive here and I am happy with it. 8x16 oil on board ©2008 $300.00

I have not disappeared from the face of the blog world

I am taking a little break and doing some rennovating projects that I have been putting off for a long time. I am painting, just not the fun kind. My son's girlfriend is coming for a visit so I am cleaning like a crazy woman. I will be back soon.

Sit-Quigley-Sit




This is from a vintage photo by DavidB at Flickr. I don't really like painting on stretched canvas, I prefer a hard surface. I do like the way this one turned out. It took me more than a day to complete however. 12x16 oil on canvas. ©2008
