Whistle Stops and Food Projects

Hi All, Decided to post my pastel plein air paintings from the last few weeks. They are all done 100% plein air and I am reserving the right to tweak them! Shown are the Olyphant Station, Porch Pair and Susquehanna Farm Lamb! Had fun doing the farm scene with Rodrica and Maryann. I was thinking I had a sale of the Olyphant Station when an onlooker kept asking me questions and hanging around. But, alas, when I gave her an absolutely fabulous deal to take it as is, she declined...... So it goes.....

Whistle Stops & Depots

PEPS is involved in a multi-year project to paint all of the train stations and other railroad structures that are still standing in NEPA. Joanne and I were able to paint the Queen City Station in Olyphant this past Thursday and had a great day out. Here are a couple of shots from the site and my painting--Joanne had a great start on hers but I forgot to photo it so maybe she will upload it for you to see. As you can see from the photo of Joanne, it was quite windy!!!

Finally--something to show!

Finally managed to get outside to paint and started on my PEPS plein air food project. Had to sit in a chair to paint due to the fatigue and lack of strength so was a bit hampered by the lack of freedom to back up and squint, etc. But I'm reasonably satisfied with the painting and glad to have my project started. It's oil, 8 x 10". Hope to get out a couple of more times in the near future.
