"Alla Prima" Portrait

This is a quick portrait I did of my cousin's daughter Kym, from Quebec, who has been living with us. She sat pretty well for a 13 year old. I am happy with the result and she will have a nice souvenir of her stay with us! The picture with Kym in it was taken the next day, so her hair is a little bit different.

Susan Powell Plein Air Painting Event

I left my house very early in the am to paint in Madison, CT for Susan Powell Fine Art's Plein Air Event. I found a beach before 9 am and made myself very happy there. My first painting didn't go so well....the tide went out very quickly. That only warmed me up for my next painting. I am quite happy with how it went. By the time I got home, I was extremely tired. Especially since I painted all day in Boston the day before!!!

Painting Beacon Hill

It was the perfect day to head into Boston and paint on the Charles River. Not too much wind and not too hot. Because they are repairing the bridge, I didn't get to stand in my favorite place, but I am happy with what I have.

New Hampshire Vacation 09

We were lucky and had a great week of weather with only a little rain. Forgot my Alizarin Crimson but managed 5 paintings all week. It was really great to get away!

We spent the first day in North Conway. After we saw this beautiful view, we went to Diana's Bath. The water was really flowing and was really freezing!
