Don’t you just love summer? In my world, nothing says summer like a kayak or canoe trip on one of the many bodies of water close to home. This one is the Hudson River – sparkling and cool on a warm summer day. Love it!

This painting is reserved for an upcoming exhibit in October at Saratoga Arts, titled: “Many Rivers”. More info to follow.

I had a wonderful semi-private plein air workshop at Yaddo yesterday with two of my very talented students, Cindy, and Gail. The day was beautiful, and perfect for painting outdoors.

Here’s Gail busy painting away. I really liked her composition.

Here’s where Cindy ended at the end of the workshop. I think she did an excellent job handling her values, and color temperature shifts.

All in all, not a bad way to spend a gorgeous summer day! Many thanks to Cindy and Gail for the opportunity!

If you’d like the opportunity to study with me, I’ll be teaching a group plein air workshop tomorrow (7/5/15) in Congress Park. Please contact me for registration info.

Birches by the Lake (Wiawaka)

5×7″ | Pastel

Here are the birches at Wiawaka in Lake George. I visited there with my mother-in-law a couple years ago for the day. It’s such a wonderful place– I’d like to get back there this summer to paint.

This piece is headed to Art @ the Lake. I stopped by the gallery and had a sneak peek at the work – there are so many amazingly beautiful works there!! I strongly encourage you to check it out.

Until next time…

Hudson River Summer

sold
This painting has already found a home to a collector in New Jersey.

Do you need some peace and serenity in your life at the moment? Well, I hope this painting can offer a bit of that even if more a moment. It was a very peaceful and soothing piece to paint. I am so fortunate to have art to turn to in times of need. What do you do when peace is needed?

Until next time…
