This painting is 8x10 oil, presently is at Tsuga gallery for the show "Americana".  There are many beautiful paintings to see. I need to go back and review them all again. Meanwhile, I will continue to paint and improve, oh yes...and post.

Well, here I am at last!

This painting depicts the farmland in LaConner, WA. one of my favorite places to paint plain air. I did this 8x10 oil on linen after a series of workshops taken. Sometimes, you paint the same way, using the same colors and techniques and need to shaken. So, I stopped posting and did on-line workshops in watercolor, pen & ink sketching. Also, I watched numerous instructional downloads and took notes as if I were in a classroom situation.

I feel recharged like a new battery and ready to share. The rest of the summer will be experimenting with new skills I hope.
What have you been doing in my absents? Let me know, I'm here waiting.
