Lake Arthur Autumn Light

Painted this scene with my Hoyt class. Took along my artist friend Michelle as "guest artist". Beth picked the place. The sky gave us a real show, perfect evening for plein air painters.

Tipp City Brick

The Ohio Plein Air society was invited to paint in the lovely historical town of Tipp City. There were many interesting, colorful buildings in town. I finally settled on this corner. The brick building was built in the early 1800's. Everyone was so hospitable, we plan to be back next year, Lord willing.

Court House, Trumbull County, Oh

Warren Artist (TAG) sponsored a Plein Air event this weekend. I painted three yesterday, They will hang in the Warren art center to be sold. This painting received honorable mention. Another one is sold.

Iron Bridge on RT 224

As always we looked around for the perfect spot. It seemed to be the view from the middle of the bridge. Fortunately there was a pedestrian walkway on one side of the bridge where we could safely set up our easels. I struggled with this and got down a few things I liked, but it quickly got dark. However a few touches in the studio and I am very happy with it.

One Rainy Day

This particular evening our Plein Air class planned to meet at a local park reserve. It was pouring down rain, no problem there was an open picnic pavillion where we could set up to paint this scene in the rain.

Child at Y Festival

Another quick oil sketch. I love those dear faces, each person is the work of a great artist, God himself.

12" X 9" sold


Wanted to share with you a couple of quick oil portrait sketches I did at the DavisYMCA a week ago. I have done tons of quick pencil sketches down through the years. After doing so many on the spot landscape paintings I thought, "why not try some on the spot portraits?" So I did, and it was great fun.
