The Bird Sanctuary at Mill Creek Park. The plein air painters all agreed that yesterday was the perfect day to be working outside, especially here at the bird sanctuary!

Stone House Alley

The Plein Air East Ohio group painted in Lisbon, Ohio last week. Enjoy the old buildings. I especially enjoy the glow of sunlight on old brick. Although we had some sunshine the day was chilly.
This painting was juried into the Butler Regional show.

New Castle Hill

Jan, who is taking my Hoyt class, led us to this area of town yesterday. We were not sure how the sunspots and evening shadows would move as time passed, but were pleasantly surprised. A kind and lovely local resident brought us hot coffee as the evening turned cool.

Hoyt Class Study

The first fall Hoyt Class demo. We painted under covered patio with the fall arrangement on a stool in the light. There was a light drizzle some of the evening which did not hurt the display and seemed to enhance the colors. Students were enthusiastic and designed their own interesting compositions.

Prairie Rain

The Fall Ohio Plein Air Society Springfield Bog paint-out last Saturday had a good turnout. Rain threatened, but held off until about noon, so most artists finished their paintings. I painted this in the afternoon under some umbrellas. This painting along with June painting "Prairie Path" were chosen to hang with other OPAS artist Ohio prairie paintings at the Springfield Museum near Dayton, Ohio.
