Quakertown Falls

One warmer day this month Brad called to ask if we were going somewhere to paint. We had talked of painting the frozen falls. The falls were running freely that day, there was ice hanging from the walls of the ravine.

Five by Five

A few weeks ago I entered four oil paintings, five inches by five inches each, in a benefit show.  These were done from photos, not my preference; I would rather paint on location, directly from life. Never the less the paintings sold.

Mill Creek Farmland

It has been a particularly cold winter with an intimidating wind chill! One day Brad, one of the group who paints on location with me, called. We painted the brief midwinter thaw at Mill Creek farms off Bettendorf Road. We want to paint from that hilltop one day. However one needs to ford the creek & it was running high that day.
