8 x 10 Oil on Canvas Board
I painted this from a photograph that I took in Alaska about 10 years ago.....can't believe it's been that long. I seem to struggle with landscape......the Plein Air class is a way for me to paint landscape on a regular schedule. I have taken several Plein Air Workshops over the past few years, but didn't follow through with going out on a regular schedule.

This is the painting I did Friday in the Plein Air Class.....Robert helped me get the angles of the bridge was a little chilly!!!

"SDP Article Decorative Painters Magazine"

It's been a crazy week!!! I finished the article and it will be in the mail on Monday. Yea! Yea! I have painted every day; finally got one today that I will post later. I keep telling myself the reason for the "blog" is to make myself paint, not just to have something to post. I've been working 8x10, so it takes me a couple of days to finish. So I will change my New Year's resolution to 3 painting per week, if they are 8x10 or larger. Pressure is OFF!!!!!! Went to the Minature Show yesterday afternoon! WOW! What a wonderful show....over 900 pieces including sculpture. It's at the Gulf Coast Art Museum. It's a must see.
