New Painting

My very newest painting, August 27th, (18 x14") was completed on a cloudy afternoon at Prickett's Creek. It was a great day. While out working, I was very happy to run into my old painting professor at Fairmont State - unexpected, but really made my day. Plus, of my more recent works, that day's painting is my favorite. The last few works I decided not to post here or on my website because, after I stared at them for several days, the conclusion was (I'll be honest) - they stunk. They weren't by any means the worst pieces ever, but nothing to write home about. Something about the palette was just not working, among other things. So I am moving on and hoping for good weather in September! Fall is my absolute favorite season and I am very excited that it's just around the corner. The light is changing and you can feel it approaching - love it!

Photos on location

Here are some photos taken last weekend out at the Cheat River in Randolph County, WV. I completed a 24 x 20" piece that you may be able to see coming along in the pictures. Once I have a good photo of that work - August 15, at Cheat River - I will post it. Things have been really busy lately, I had to cram a painting day into a painting delivery day (work for the upcoming Gala - more on that later) PLUS stretcher work for ultimate multi-tasking! Anyway, still not an incredible amount of painting going on. I am super excited for all of the house stuff to be over with so I can get back into a painting routine, but it is still a bit far off.

Too long

It's been too long since I've posted - I've been very busy lately with non-art-related things, like house hunting. I hadn't realized it would be this challenging and time-consuming. I haven't completed a painting in a while, but have a big painting weekend planned in Elkins! New paintings to come...
