From my kitchen
w/c sketch
140 lb. arches

Took out my watercolors to do this from my kitchen, looking out.  It is basically just a gesture of a
summer scene.  I've been working in acrylic and w/c.  Missing my oils. Oh, well.  Hope everyone
is enjoying the summer.  It is going by too fast. Happy Painting everyone.

still life watercolor

Never posted this one.  It was  done over a year ago.  Trying to get back to blogging.
Most of my time and energy has been on painting and posting on dpw and facebook.
Happy Painting everyone.

A study in gouache.  It is going to be a lovely day today.  Want to get some plein air sketching thinking about using gouache.

The week before Easter, Mike and I went to the Stony Brook harbor so that I could do some plein air sketch from my car.  Will probably go to the beach today for some more plein sketching.

Tuesday Morning entry


My first entry into my journal after Easter.  Still trying to get back into my art. Just a little warm up sketch to get my creative juices flowing.  It is still so cold here on Long Island, no plein air today, unless I paint from my car.  Just might do that, it is only 7am, so another cup of coffee will help.  Happy painting everyone

The Old Shack

The old shack.  A few years back I painted with a group.  I took so many photos as well as painted plein air.  The was done recently in my watercolor journal.

Just a sketch

After painting in oil, it was time to get back to my watercolor.  I recently purchased some supplies for painting in the car.

We now have a Hobby Lobby close by and I purchased a lap table.  It is perfect to painting in the front seat. My pad and paints fit perfectly on the table top.  It is getting too cold to stand outside so this is what I will be doing for the winter months.

Also , just purchased the Amazon fire stick and the echo dot.  With the stick there is an app for prime photos.  It is wonderful to see my scenic photos on the 60in. tv screen.  Started doing some sketches.   Hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season. Happy painting everyone.
