"Tea Time" Step by Step




8 x 10 on Canvas Board
It's been a few days since I painted......I am way too busy! I started this one this morning, but got it way too wet. I'm trying to get more paint onto the canvas. I like the texture that it creates. Of course I need to let it sit overnight....will finish it in the am.

"Lemon n' Balsamic"







8x10 Oil on Canvas


It looks a little crooked......my photography is lacking! The hardest part was trying to get the lemon reflection value right! As you can see the block in is straight......Oh My, I'll check it again tomorrow, it always looks better the next day. Remember you learn more from your mistakes than you success.

"Ash Cave"


8 x 10 Oil on Canvas Board
Finally had time to put the finishing touches on this painting I did in Chuck Marshall's workshop. I just can't seem to get back into painting every day. Things should start to slow down, I hope with being back in class with Michael McEwan will get me on a regular schedule.

Chuck Marshall Workshop


Just finished a 3 day workshop with Chuck Marshall. A great time was had by all, plus it was the best "Plein Air Workshop" I've had the privilege to attend. Chuck's a great painter, plus he understands how to teach. Now I'm motivated to get out there and Paint!
