Blue Bowl Again

I'm entering a small works show in Greenville SC. I will probably submit this painting and the one below- of the yellow apples. I can submit two, but they only accept one- IF I get accepted at all.

Yellow Apples

I love this bowl and how it creates interesting reflections.

Route 51 Farm- Work in Progress

This is a studio piece from a plein air painting of this scene. It's such a "traditional" scene that I couldn't pass it up.

Weddington Park

Had fun painting today in Weddington with my plein air friends. I made the scene more like "fall" to get away from an all green painting

Baxter Village Park

I did this today in the Alison Park area of Baxter Village.I was trying to use the "colorist" approach instead of using all greens and local colors. It's hard for me to do this without making the colors too garish- still trying!There were two lawn workers cutting grass and blowing leaves around with a loud leaf blower. The noise almost made me quit- but I stuck it out.

Thinking of Carol

I worked on this painting a bit more after posting this photo. I'll try to update it tomorrow. I love Carol Marine's blog and website. I was so sad to hear that her house and studio burned in the Austin, TX fires this week. I painted this today in honor of her. She makes painting tea cups and fruit look SO easy- but it's certainly not easy at all!

Deborah's Back Porch

It's a little crooked, but I like the light/shadow effect. Deborah, a fellow painter, invited us to her home in the NODA area of Charlotte for a day of painting. It was a lovely location! Thanks Deborah! We also had a delicious lunch at the backyard picnic table.
