I had intended to upload my sketchcrawl paintings and my photos from my gallery show that took place the last two weekends, but I don't seem to be able to upload any photos today.

I won't be posting for a while. My husband and I are leaving tomorrow for 4 weeks in France. I plan to be back with LOTS of paintings done while I'm away. Until then, Bonjour!!!

Morning Meeting

This is 11 x 15 done from a combination of photos I had taken one morning in Myrtle Beach. The reflections were a challenge to do and it was hard to get the birds to stand out against the water and sand. I'm fairly happy with it.

I don't often work from photos at this time of the year, but I worked on this a little at a time. It is 11 x 15 and was done from 2 photos that I took at a favorite restaurant of mine in Manhattan. I combined them to give a "taste" of Carmine's.

Ceramic Corner

This is 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 and was done for the WDE on Wet Canvas. I poured the undercoat for the background tiles. It was fun to paint a still life for a change.

Jordan Pond

Here is another painting from Acadia National Park. This is Jordan Pond, a peaceful spot if I ever saw one. The restaurant there has the best popovers and you can sit out on the lawn. This is 4 x 6.

Acadia Cliffs

This was painted on location in Acadia National Park in Maine. I started it in watercolors but the view was just too much to handle without adding a lot of ink work for the details. This is 8 x 10.
