Acrylic, 28 x 22I found this one in my daughter's collection. It was the day my easel lost a leg. In order to compensate, I had to prop it up on a tree ... now my view was the barn. (I had wanted to paint the new lambs.)
Acrylic, 24 x 30I am taking part in the Gwinnett Parks Plein Air Challenge. Great fun! We have gone to 6 parks over the spring and summer and will soon have a party, Life doesn't have to get much better than that.
"Your work brought back many fond memories of the area. I, too, painted at Garrison's Artists on Location for quite a few years. Even after I moved to GA I would fly up there and participate. as it was so much fun. What a beautiful place…"
"I get it and I love it! Wild and crazy Sista. Can you come and stay at my lake cabin and paint with me next year? I think we would have a great time. My guest anytime. Keep up the vibrant special plein air work! …"
Often when we paint plein air we have to paint quickly to capture the image before the light changes too much. This calls for a simplification of the subject to its basic elements, also known as abstraction.
Hi Judy- I am an artist working in Peekskill who remembers you fondly as the person who spearheaded the Valley Artists Association. Many of us who were members are now folded in to the Peekskill Arts Council. I had a studio on South Street but have moved to a studio in an old Hat Factory which has been converted into office and studio space. Currently there are 4 artists occupying the space. In any case, I'm so glad to know that you have joined Plein Air Artists. Let me know what's been happening with you.
Of course I know Sue Basile. Her daughter Michel is married to my best friend's son. It's certainly a small world! I'm delighted to know you are 'painting up a storm' and look forward to seeing your web site....and have a great time with Sue at the Chesapeke Bay.
Judith... You've also got a great color sense & style.. I've been a frequent traveller to India & Asia since 1970. So a lot of my work is from there. But I also teach in Wyoming, Ohio, and Florida from time to time. But I travel extensively and so I try to work on whatever... wherever!
Hi Judy!!! I just viewed some new and some familiar images of yours. Many in locations where I was with you ... ahhh, how wonderful! Most of my work now is not plein air but I need to keep a toe in the plein air pool. Being part of this site will be good for me. I miss you.
