I worked some more on the little studies I did a few months ago, I think they're finished now. Paintings take 'time' to mature. Sometimes months go by until you get the answer, like a seed germinating. Every process of creation has a gestation period.…Continue

I am so excited to begin a new adventure in the field of plein air painting. My first few experiences have been done with soft pastels but am looking forward to some landscapes in oil. Tomorrow I will join a local plein air group to paint at St Catherines in Fayetteville Arkansas. It looks like its going to be a beautiful day so hope to come home with a nice new painting.

Three small ones,same place, different times.
Meenan's Cove Park trail, on an unseasonably warm day in March. That's ice on the river in background. This is on black Richeson Unison sanded paper, very rough tooth.Continue

We spent a week in Varadero doing a lot of serious relaxing. I did manage to exert myself a couple of times with my mini-kit.
This is the beach and my setup. I omitted the sunbathers between me and the water. It's 5x7 on UART sanded paper, stuck into a moleskine-type sketchpad.…Continue
I spent 3 weeks in Switzerland in the fall, visiting my daughter who is a grad student in Zurich. I saw a fair amount of the country and took 300 pictures, but didn't have much time for plein air painting.
This is a quick little sketch of the view out my window in Zermatt; the Matterhorn at 7a.m., with the sun just hitting the top. I only had a 4x4 brown-paper pad and 3 different pencils, but I had to give it a shot.…Continue

Last weekend we had an incredible blooming in my azalea garden when I did some watercolors that were so colorful I simply was overwhelmed with the bright colors I was using. I invited a few painters over to share the scene but I did not get any company until a week later, yesterday, when Shane McDonald, who won 1st place in the MCMA plein air event,…Continue

I just spent most of yesterday driving to Potomac, Maryland, USA, from my house, about 2 and a half hours, to hang an art show. I am sharing a show with another woman, both our paintings having to do with travel. Mine, of Ireland, hers of Italy. It is really going to be a nice show, in a great setting. Funny, the building used to be a tack (horse equipment) shop since the 1950's, and I would go in there every now and then as I was growing up. I grew up about 5 miles away, in Bethesda,…Continue
