Small Sunflower Field

Two weeks ago Latrobe PA artists planned their first Plein Air event ever! I was excited to paint in the kind, gentle, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Although it was a two hour drive from my home,Doreen Currie from the area, an enthusiastic and talented plein air artist, made the trip worth the effort.
The painting will hang in the Latrobe Art Center with other artwork through October 22.

Spanish Influence, Lakeside Center

The final day at Lakeside I finished this 12" x 24" painting on cradled Birchwood. The previous morning was cool and overcast, very comfortable when spending time working out the composition. But, that final morning the sun showed up the highlights needed to give it a glow.

Garden & Rock Pile



The Lakeside Chautauqua on Lake Erie has these beautiful gardens that were blooming profusely last week. Coneflowers, hollyhock, black-eyed Susan, Russian Sage, framing a lake that changes color   as the sky and wind affect it.

Hayden Falls

My artist friend, Michelle invited me to paint with her this past week. Friday was extremely hot,but we found this lovely waterfall set apart, in the midst of the city. We painted a couple of hours in the calm oasis sharing with the snakes, wild ducklings and poison ivy.
