Zepernick Lake Preserve

This past Monday Kathy prompted me to arrange a Plein Air Paint-out at Zepernick Lake preserve on State Route 172. The sun was bright, although the air was nippy. We took care to sit in plain view, aware that it was deer hunting season.

Hoyt View of New Castle

Ending that same week in Eleventh Month I painted a view from the Hoyt Art Center second floor window. They held and their fall open house on the 18th. The New Castle news even used a photograph of me in their news story! Not pretty, at my age, but the palette and painting looked good!

Purple Kraut

I was invited to demonstrate for some students of Michelle's in Wapakoneta. Taking things I had at hand, I decided to use objects that might be used in sauerkraut. A wooden stomper, salt, vinegar, purple cabbage, a steel grater, bak choy, and some pots. The audience seemed appreciative, plus they were fun and entertaining!

Lamppost Farm

11/13/17, Having scheduled a Meet-up to paint at Lamppost Farms I thought in the early part of the day no one would meet me there. The rain discourages some artists. I didn't feel like battling the rain either. However the rain let up about time to leave, so I went. The animals on this farm seem comfortable with a stranger, even curious. So, I painted alone this dreary day in Eleventh Month.

Autumn Creek

Scheduled the last plein air for this month at the suspension bridge in Mill Creek Metropark. The color was brilliant. I used my pallet knives on this. I think it helped give the feel of the scattered leaves!

Nearby Pond

There is  a pond nearby, on Signal Road where you may notice I paint from time to time. I thoroughly enjoy painting the natural setting! The owner is very gracious to give me access to paint his pond.

Schiller Park

About mid October my artist friends Michelle Walker and Marianne Miller met in Schiller Park, Columbus. The old vermillion brick homes lend themselves to these oil painters pallet! It certainly adds to the fun when painting with good friends!
