Big House on the Prarie

OK, it feels like forever since my last post and I think its the first time i have gone this long without something new on here. I hate to repeat what I read on other blogs but I don't think thru the summer its gonna be too frequent posting for me.

Some of the things I have been doing lately painting almost every Saturday with the figure group up in Belfast ME at Waterfall Arts, Every Wednesday I have been participating in the Plein Air Painters of Maine paint outs, (Thank you Corinne) I also paint quite a bit with my good friend Roberta Goschke (she's great check her work out on the link) and most recently spent a day hangin with Colin Page, painting in Damariscotta. (this painting is from that day) It was a beautiful day and I hope the painting conveys that. (I know the photo stinks) I got a couple and laughed thru out the day, especially when a young girl that was passing by recommended to Colin to paint a dinosaur into his painting.

Well its about time to head out to paint so I'm wrapping this post up early.

Great to see you back. Lovely light in this one, a real feature of your work, you extract the last bit of glow out of your subject matter. Picked up and American magazine the other day and found an article about a congregation of artists, including people like Frank and Colin, at the venue you will be visiting as part of your recent successful grant bid. Place looks great and will certainly suit your style. Looking forward to seeing the results.
