I used brushes and painting knives on this oil painting. It is entitled "Crane Pond Waterfall" and my perspective is viewing the falls through the overgrowth of trees and brush on the shore. It was very difficult to get an unobstructed view because of the trees and the deep ledge to the water. I used the knives on the leaves in the foreground.

I just rejoined Oil Painters of America as an associate member and started an associate membership in the American Impressionist Society. Both are great national painters organizations which put on exhibitions each year. Their websites are www.oilpaintersofamerica.com and www.americanimpressionistsociety.org

Fresh off the easel this weekend! "Honey Pot Road Autumn", oil on canvas panel, 16" x 20", I painted this from my own photos in my studio in the same style as my plein air painting but on a larger size canvas. I will paint more paintings in this larger format.
Almost finished this autumn scene painting which is a closer view of an earlier painting of Honey Pot Road. I need a couple hours to finish it off but made good progress last night. I will post it when it is finished!
I have 14 paintings on display and for sale at Mama Cakes on Elm Street in downtown Westfield, MA. Included are two acrylic paintings, one watercolor and the rest oil paintings. Also, I have a large rack of loose matted original watercolor paintings. They will be there for the rest of the month and three weeks into February. Stop by to check them out and have a coffee and delicious cupcake!
