Marsh Morning

Marsh Morning | 9×12″ | Oil

This is my afternoon demo from the Landscapes in Oil workshop with the Bethlehem Art Association. I would like to do a much larger version of this painting soon. I love those back-lit clouds!

In class we discussed the importance of choosing a good composition, and working from photos. This piece for example was a combination of two separate photos taken on the same day. One photo of the marsh had clear detail of the ground, but the sky was washed out. My solution was to take another photo of the sky with the correct exposure to capture those brilliant clouds.

Until next time…

Morning Glow and Blog Anniversary Give-Away

4×6″ pastel – Framed Size 8×10″
SOLD to a collector in Saratoga Springs, NY

This is the view of the sunrise over the marsh during the warmer months. I absolutely love the brilliance of the sun warming the cool trees.

June 19, will mark the 7th anniversary of my first blog post. In previous years, I’ve done some sort of give-away to celebrate. This year is no different, however, I am including a couple giclee reproductions for my Facebook page fans as well.

I’ll also do a drawing for a small original painting of my choosing exclusively for email subscribers. Previous collectors have the opportunity to be entered multiple times.

If you are interested, you can enter the drawings several ways:

1. Go to my Facebook Page and hit “Like” (#300 and a friend wins a giclee)

2. Email subscribers are automatically entered for the original give-away.

3. Previous collectors have an extra opportunity to win – please leave a comment or send me a message letting me know which of my paintings you currently own. Your name is entered for each painting. Therefore, if you have 3 of my paintings – you are entered 4 times – 1 for just being a subscriber, and 3 for each painting in your collection!

Fun, huh?

I will do the drawing on 6/19 for the original.

Thank you, and good luck!

Until next time…

A Secret Place

SOLD!
Here’s a little pastel celebrating Spring. I took an early morning kayak trip a few years ago and took many photos of this sweet, quiet spot just off the lake. I like to think of it as my very own secret place. I’m looking forward to visiting again this coming spring.

Until next time…
