Wednesday Morning on Main Ave

Took the morning off from work on Wed just because the sun was shining! I knew that I had to be at work for an appointment at 12:30 but the morning was mine. Wandered around a bit before deciding on this location on Main Ave to paint. The sun was right and there was a deserted parking lot up the street where I could set up and be near but off the street.

Has anyone else been out painting lately?

Last Weekend

Here's a bit of work that I did last weekend. Sat. I stood in my driveway and painted the road and trees--left out the cars zooming by. The other two I did on Sunday. Joanne met me in Waverly and we painted together for a couple of hours. Cars were zooming by there too but a couple of times people stopped and asked to take photos of us painting. One of them said he would submit the photo to the Pennsylvania Magazine and contact us if it was accepted for publication. Had we know that in advance, we'd probably have worn different clothes and fixed our hair!!

Sorry I've been absent

Just a quick post to say hello and thank those of you who contributed to our show at the Everhart. We have 19 paintings on exhibit there until the end of October. And then Joanne will be picking them up and transporting them to the Glenburn Twp. Building so you can pick them up there along with any that you have in that show. I will be away that week so call her and make your arrangments.

I haven't been out painting too much recently--seems that my free time and the good weather are out of sync this year. But I have a few places in mind that I want to paint so gotta get going. I want to paint in the city on Cedar Ave (down a bit from Coney Island), want to paint the Waverly General Store, would like to do another early morning painting of Scranton from the Providence Road exit, want to take another crack at some haybales that I messed up, and all those great fall colors are about to pop out. That's the short list! If you want to join me, give me a call.

Glenburn Art Show

Hi All,
This is just a reminder that the Glenburn Art Show is happening during the month of October. I've sent out press releases so I am committed at this point. I hope some of you will participate! I have sent out emails with copies of the entry forms. Hopefully, you have all received them. Here is the painting I am using for the press release and probably the post card. It isn't plein air but then the show is either studio or plein air. This is a 9 x 12 watercolor that I did at the Finger Lakes from the roses on my property. My daughter also did the same still life in acrylic and it looks totally different. I will post her painting later if she gives me permission. She is thinking about being a studio art major in college. I have mixed emotions about her choice as I know how difficult it is to make a living at it! Any input from the pros??
Thanks, Joanne
