Took my 150 miles round trip to take down my April show, most of the paintings are back in their boxes or bags ,ready to travel to another place where hopefully they will find a home . It's amazing how many walls ,parks ,fairs ,galleries one painting will travel, evenly someone will love them and take them home. Every artists dreams of that day! it's like children and they even cost money, photos ,brochures, slides ,entry fees . I don't think the general public is aware of this ! When they do get adopted, they become an investment in someones life and bring them joy and tranquility, one advise , BUY ORIGINAL ART!
Another small watercolor sketch done on location last summer.

This was a study, done on location this past summer, for a larger painting ,witch I later painted. but sometimes the sketch captures exactly what you wanted, and this was the case, the end of the day with a bright sun light on the cottage . I love to do those small sketches on location just about anywhere , with no large set up. I am hoping to achieved this next week in France

This is my cat Molly, every time I plan a still life painting with a quilt , she wants to be in it. My vision was something else , but why fight it? she does it all the time. she is now 17 years old, she is a bit spoiled these days, gets expansive food, only gourmet for her, she is truly an artist cat because she has so many colors , I never get tired of painting her. Today i painted this with some friends, we all worked on something different.and truly enjoyed it.

I got up this morning exited to go back to the same spot I was yesterday to capture the buckets on the trees, and believe me, I was lucky! because they later removed them for the season. We are also getting more snow in a day or two, so I did enjoy the plein air today, met some nice people while painting and found a great country store to have a warm cup of coffee, all in a day's work of a plein air artist!
