Mud Season

Mud Season 24x30" Available 
 Finally Spring has taken hold here in Midcoast Maine! After a way too long winter, I am ready.. The grass is getting greener and the mud is not so muddy anymore.
 This piece "Mud Season" 24x30" is being delivered today along with ten other new pieces to Camden Falls Gallery in Camden ME. Their link is on the upper right hand corner of this blog and look em up on Facebook if that's something you do.

I usually quote other artists here but think as the outdoor painting season is getting underway I will try something else. Maybe some technical paint questions and excerpts from my own teaching.

Lets start with a question shall we? Do you know what the handling difference between oils used to bind your pigment does to your painting experience? example Sunflower (Safflower) oil vs Linseed oil.  I know what experience differences I feel and would like to know your experiences with the different oils. If you are not comfortable commenting with your own name please feel free to "anonymous" comment. Just comment.

oh yeah.. within the next two weeks my Etsy store will close. If you have been thinking of jumping on one of the very low priced pieces there, get on it. Etsy will be closed as I will be too busy to keep it up and the pieces will be out and prices back to normal. Thank you to those who visited and purchased from my Etsy. I truly appreciate it.

We've had the same awful never ending winter here too. The lack of light just isn't conducive to getting out with the paints. Delighted to see you're back out there and producing great work. Love it.

I love this piece you posted! I love the line that you walk with your pieces, telling the story without talking too much. The notes that I took at your workshop are going through my head every day that I've been painting this summer, and they have helped me solve some problems with mumbling that I have had.You are a painters painter and I can't get enough of it.
