Another evening at Gordon's

I am a firm believer that painting the WW II towers is a cheesy, touristy thing to do. However....this is one of my favorite views around here - the view from the overlook on the trail. There is a tower in this view. I added it, but I was tempted to leave it out. This one was done with brush only, no palette knife.

And a little more plein air

Walked down the trail at Gordon's Pond after work yesterday with my plein air cart. There are so many great views there, you can just stop anywhere and have a great view to paint. The weather was perfect, the sky was clear. The only issue were the flies and the horseflies. The were incessantly attacking my lower legs. I felt sympathy for horses and cows in fields.

This is mostly done with palette knife. The brush came in a couple times, but not often. 24 x 28.

A little plein air

Stopped by Surf Avenue after a big storm moved through and did a quick plein air. Working on a larger piece tonight after work, hopefully at Gordon's Pond. This one is about 10 x 10.

St. Peter's

Good day at St. Peter's this year. I sold 4 paintings and now am scrambling to get new paintings completed before the RAL Outdoor Show in August.  These paintings sold: (Plus one more I cannot find a picture of.)
