Almost August!

Hi there!

As I mentioned last time, back on June 16 and 17, I participated in the Gunpowder Falls Plein Air Competition. You can read about it at http://www.gunpowderfallspleinair.com/.

All day Friday and half the day Saturday I wandered about and found things to paint. Then, Saturday evening there was a show of much of the work of the participants. Each of us could submit two pieces. I painted four.

Below, in order of execution are the paintings I did. The two I showed were the house with the big porch and the Boordy Vineyard barn rooftop.

Hope you like them!

Back for more

Well hi there! It has been a while since my last post. Sitting here on the deck on a Sunday morning. A beautiful day. Laptops with wireless are pretty cool!

This is a pretty major week for us. Our oldest daughter is getting married on Friday!

I was feeling bad about not posting anything new, so I rummaged around to see what I have on my computer that I can show you. I found this picture of my brick-flying boy. Hope you like it. It's a scanned line drawing from one of my sketch books. I then colored it in Illustrator CS2, using some of the cool new brushes with my Wacom.

I'll have more to show later from my outdoor painting adventure from a couple weekends ago. I just have to get the images on the computer.

See ya!
