Bathing in the Light

I just returned from THE MOST FABULOUS painting workshop with Trisha Adams.  She is a fantastic painting and a genius teacher.  Not only can she paint gorgeous paintings but can talk about how she does it in simple terms that the rest of us can understand.  I never liked painting still life's before but I really love how this painting turned out.  The color and light are so luscious.  I now need to try and apply what I learned into my landscapes.  I think I'll keep practicing on still life's until I master the light and then apply it to my landscapes.  I really do hope I can move in this direction permanently and not fall back into old habits.  Color and light and brushwork are what make a painting exciting!  Please send me comments and let me know what you think.  Share the enthusiasm:)

I'm back in the studio finally!  You know your life is all thrown off when the kids return from college.  It's all about them.  So back to business.  Last week was a great start to the new year with two paintings and three giclees sold.  Now to do more creating.... I hope you like this one.  It seems my adirondack chairs do very well so I painted another one.  I'm taking another workshop next weekend so I'm sure I'll be re-inspired.  I'll keep you posted.

My first international sale.  I sold these three giclees of my original paintings to a man in Israel.  This week has started off great with two paintings sold and three giclees!  Let's hope this is the beginning of a great new year with painting and sales.

Off to a good new year.  I sold this painting on January 4th along with another of a red sailboat.  Both paintings were shipped off to Florida where the temperatures are much warmer!  I hope they'll be happy in their new home.  I've been working on my photos from 2013 as I prepare to do my kids scrapbooks which I usually do in January.  It helps me review the year and gain inspiration as to my next painting direction.  I'm taking a new workshop later this month so who knows what will come of that.  Keep a look out for my new work.
