For both my acrylic painting workshops this past weekend we used my photo from Keenebunkport, Maine sea coast as a reference for our lessons. Three students at the Hadley Michaels and two from the West Springfield Michaels love the picture and did great on their paintings! One was a mother Gwen who regularly brought her teenage daughter Grace and decided to give it a try herself. Also, an 83 year old lady Nancy who hasn't painted in 3 years wanted very much to do a seascape. She thoroughly enjoyed it!
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.

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!
