3.5"x5" Oil on board
Yet another view of the campus buildings at Susquehanna U. This building has a wonderful art gallery inside that hosts their annual Juried Figurative Show. I have yet to get in, but I keep trying.
(Maybe this fall -Third time is a charm. / fingers crossed.)

10"x8" Oil on board
I attended a Ron Donoughe plein air workshop in April, at Artworks in Johnstown, PA. This little panel was what I started in the workshop. It is finally finished. The workshop was very informative and I really liked his "parent color" method for getting started with the painting.
This is how I already work in watercolors. Begin with 3 or four 'starter' color mixes. These get tweaked to create the multitude of other shades, tints, values for the painting.
Thank you Ron for the epiphany!
He will be teaching another plein air workshop this August in Wellsboro, PA at the Red Barn Arts Center. Ron is an excellent teacher.

10"x8" Oil on canvas -- SOLD
Last October we didn't have as much snow as New Jersey. We did get a pretty coating of the white stuff. I painted this is from a photo I took then. I admit it was not easy painting snow covered leafy trees.

7"x5" Watercolor on 140#Arches
This scene is from the cabin we stayed in last July 4, 2011. There was a thunderstorm rolling in from the west and fireworks in the east. The light was very bright and very dark at the same time.
