Yesterday was a warm day for November I really wanted to go out and paint. I think we are in for an encore today! So I think that will be my goal today. My cat paintings still need a few touch ups before I post them.
My post today are my three pears, they look like the three pear shaped ladies.
I also had some visitors yesterday a young Webelos Cub Scout pack with their leaders. It was a field trip to the studio to help them earn their Art badge,they had lots of questions about art and were very knowledgeable about different medium, great kids!

I am back from Maryland after an 9 hours drive, the weather was beautiful all day. The hills and mountains of Pennsylvania were just what an artist would want to paint with it's rust colors and purple mountains. The sun set was also a painters dream and to top all this as we are driving North the moon appeared over the horizon as the biggest gold looking moon I ever saw. All while driving I experienced many paintings in my head ,hope I can remember them all!

I will be traveling to Maryland from Massachusetts in the next few days, I always enjoy driving by the beautiful farmlands of Pennsylvania and the Amish countryside. Hope to come back with lots of ideas for my painting.
Welcome to my studio who happens to be a 1885 Gingerbread house in Pepperell MA.
I was painting and teaching classes in my studio for over 22 years. With the time many of my students have gone on to be professionals in the art field from Art teachers, designers , architect and much more .
I decided to take a break from teaching , and share my work with a new audience,
Being versatile and prolific I am up for a new challenge.
enjoy my new journey and my new paintings.
