Anita Reading

Another of my winter indoor paintings. Our hostess, Anita, posed for us one cold day. Each of the artists did fantastic paintings in their own styles! This is mine, a 12" x 12" oil on cradled wood.

Franklin Conservatory

A few weeks ago My artist friends Michelle Walker & Marianne Miller met to paint at the Franklin Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. The orchids were in bloom that week. It was the perfect place to paint on a cold winter day. Under a roof, but brightly lit with natural light and living plants of every type throughout. We hope to return at some point.

Winter At Park Edge

One winter day I chose to paint at the edge of the Mill Creek Fitness Trail. The sun would come and go, but I did not stay out long. It has taken me a while to take a good photo of this.

Sprucevale Spring

We felt spring had finally arrived this past Plein Air Meet-up at the Sprucevale area of Beaver Creek State park. What a beautiful day to bask in nature.

More Old Hats

We arranged another composition of the old hats. This time I added myself reflected in the mirror.

Old Hats

Anita has been given some old hats that her friends found in an attic. What fun our art group had composing a painting around them!

Swamp In Late Winter

Kathy Farthing and I painted together again on February 13th. The thermometer registered around 30 degrees. I was not expecting to stay out long. However the sun shone brightly on us. We were a little protected from the breeze in this wooded area, near the Mill Creek Park fitness trail. In fact we were very comfortable.
