This was the first watercolor painting I did in two weeks , this cold really knock my down ,I just did not feel like doing anything ,I really had to push myself to do this It really is not like me Tim also had it, we sure make a pair !but I think we are doing better.
Today I did go to the studio it was time to change work at the Loading dock  gallery downstairs ,a Summer show is up , Western Avenue has been going through  a face lift ,the parking lot is looking good, if you are in the area check it out .
In three weeks I will be going to my yearly art retreat in Lubec so I better get back to normal .  I think this watercolor was a nice warmup !

In Maine for the week and did not get much painting done,I was busy socializing with friends,Kayaking, going to a play at Lakewood theatre in Madison with two good friends, and now just came down with a bad cold ,came out of no where and feeling terrible,many people told me it's going around not fun !I have been in the couch for two days.
I did paint a couple of miniatures,here is one  feeling guilty about it, you should see all the art material I brought .I will have catch up later after I get rid of this bad cold .
One nice thing happen while i was kayaking I took some great photos of a moose that was so close to me ,it was exciting,if you are my friend on facebook you can see them there .

Just came back from a wonderful retreat with the Pastel Painters of Maine The weather beautiful for half the time there, gave me plenty time to paint two paintings and a few sketches , the rest of the time we are lucky to have a great carriage house who serves as a great big studio,we had two critiques and a great demonstration from a Maine artist Caren Michel, lots of socializing,suppers at a small restaurant right on the edge of the ocean. Sunday the weather did turn to the worst and was not able to make our planed trip to the Island of Mounhegan ,so my friend and I drove back with some heavy rain, all and all it was a great week end retreat.
